Barking at the Bed Bugs!

Last night I went along to the BBC studios to talk on ‘Barking at the Moon’ with Jo Good and Anna Webb. This was my second time on the show, and last night we were talking about the role of Dogs at the Olympics.  Trust K9 has been busy making sure the Olympians, visitors and press will be arriving to bed bug free accommodation with our bed bug sniffer dogs.

You can listen to the show here (I am on 1.17) “Woof Woof”

Anna and Jo were very engaging and their enthusiasm and passion for dogs and their roles in society is admirable. I enjoyed speaking to the other guests whilst waiting to go on air and was very interested to speak with Victoria Davidson who has created a thermometer called animalarm which will send a text message when the temperature gets too much for your dog in the car. As dog handlers we have to travel with dogs a lot, and Victoria explained to me that many dogs suffer heat exhaustion not only when a car is stationary, but also on journeys.  This clever device will send a text to your phone if the temperature gets too high. All the statistics are on her site
