Clare Balding celebrates the difference a dog can make to your life.
Today’s podcast focuses on the impact on dogs and on dog owners of the CORVID 19 pandemic. Clare speaks to Adam Clowes from the Dogs Trust about the impact of the pandemic on dogs in care, fostering and rescue centres. Jade Statt, the ‘Street Vet’ tells Clare how her team are working to support homeless dog owners. We hear about the struggle to home litters of puppies during the lockdown; and ‘Toff’, star of ‘Made in Chelsea’ and ‘I’m a Celebrity Get me Out of Here’ shares with Clare and Alice the difference that her new King Charles Spaniel puppy ‘Monty’ is making to her life.
Clare and Alice Arnold continue their pursuit of fitness during the lockdown and Archie enjoys s-l-o-w walks and long naps, Button, the cat, likes to play in boxes.
To help stop the spread of COVID-19, FirstVet is offering their video vet service completely free for all UK pet owners between the hours of 12pm to 5pm, 7 days a week, until April 30th. Www.First vet.co.uk
