Hey Hey Hey BOOKSHELVERS!
Fancy another dive into the incredible world of dogs? Thought so.
This week we have a stonker of an interview for you with the amazing Dr Carri Westgarth. Carri's new book “The Happy Dog Owner” gets released this week and it’s a winner (so go ahead and get yourself a pre order)!
This one is packed full of WOW moments and was another case of wishing we had another hour to talk to Carri.
Fitting this one in quickly so Carri could promote the up-coming release this was one of the only times that Steve didn’t get to read the book which, as you’ll hear, he is very upset about 😉. For that reason we have put this out as a long form interview rather than a “Book Review Episode”. Fear not however as you will still get a brain full of doggy goodness as usual.
