Tune in for a tail-wagging episode as I'm joined by the amazing Dr Peter Dobias to talk about all things dogs.

We explore crucial topics like considering a dog's perspective, what to think about before getting a dog, breed choices, rescue versus breeders, the harm a collar and certain leads can cause, paw behavior mysteries, and the fascinating Healing Cycle.

Episode Guest:

Peter has over 30 years of experience as a veterinarian. He has a background in both holistic and conventional veterinary medicine, animal homeopathy, and natural nutrition. In 2008, he sold his thriving holistic veterinary practice in North Vancouver, BC, Canada to pursue his passion for educating the public about disease prevention and natural treatment methods.

His goal is to help dog lovers create a healthy and long life for their canine friends naturally. His supplements and other products are made from all-natural, human-grade ingredients that are certified organic whenever possible.
