Healing through scentwork (Federica Iacozzilli)

At Dog Tails we love talking about the power of the canine nose! During this episode we chat to Federica Iacozzilli, a behaviourist and truffling and tracking teacher. Federica has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the power of scentwork and how it can help dogs struggling with anxiety and aggression. We unpack the mechanics of sniffing from the dog's perspective and also discuss common issues that many pet parents and dogs struggle with.

Your dog's home away from home (Manja Leissner - Germany)

All across the world pet parents entrust their dogs to dog sitters, dog walkers and dog daycare or boarding facilities. So what kind of things should you look for when choosing a sitter or daycare? Why might pet parents use these services and what can the benefits be? What are the warning signs that maybe it isn't the best option for your dog? We chat to Manja Leissner, owner of Qimmiq Lodge in Germany, who has been working in this area for many years. She runs a state-of-the-art daycare and holiday resort facility for dogs which focuses on creating a calm and enriching environment for dogs. Manja is a sought after speaker on this topic and we were thrilled to talk to her about her work.
