I am Katherine Schwarzenegger and this is "The Dog That Changed Me", a podcast about the power dogs have to transform our lives. In each episode I'll talk to one guest about how their decision to rescue a dog has made them into the person they are today. We will hear from a variety of people; actors, singers, dancers, veterans and more! Instead of hearing about their professional career, we will be talking about their furry soulmates. On this show we celebrate every little thing that makes our dogs our best partners. Come join us and find out how the power of a single pup can change our world for the better.
"The Dog That Changed Me" is brought to you by PEDIGREE and produced by Dear Media Studio. The PEDIGREE brand believes that dogs bring out the good in us and that Pedigree brings out the good in them.

Love listening to all the wonderful stories of dogs getting a chance they might’ve never gotten and giving their humans a life full of love
It’s what the doctor ordered
Having lost my beloved fur baby after 13 wonderland irreplaceable years, this has been exactly what I needed. I recently adopted my first rescue which is a special needs Chihuahua. She has brought grieving family so much joy, healing and hope. I love hearing the stories and how each animal enriches people’s lives in different beautiful ways. I hope this podcast continues because it’s become my sort of morning salutation. Thank you pedigree and Katherine!
