Brilliant 🐾

This podcast is awesome! I love the topic (naturally 🐾❤️) as well as the side conversations the hosts have. They’re genuine, relatable and totally hilarious 😄. I enjoy every episode and listening to the guest interviews is fun. I would love to hear more episodes with Elias, Kate and Izzy doing quizzes / answering questions and talking about whatever. Those episodes are my favorite ☺️🐾

Lily bug episode

Loved it!!

1- Baltimore city also has restrictive dog breeds
2- I have a Great Dane/Great Pyrenees mix and he was as sweet as could be, until around 10 months. Now he is fear agressive. I work with him daily to make him feel more comfortable but he is who he is. He also gives hugs, we didn’t teach it to him, he just sits like a squirrel asking to be hugged. He loves his humans and anyone he gets to know.
Great podcast in general and episode in particular!!! Keep up the good work.
