The Reliable Dog
/

Many people are adjusting to new routines as we emerge from the pandemic, and this includes our pets. These changes can be difficult for animals and lead to increased stress, anxiety, and unwanted behaviors. On The Point, we discuss strategies to introduce new routines, and reflect on some common mistakes that may contribute to behavior problems. Our guests on the program are Ian Pullen of The Reliable Dog and Dr. Steven Atwood, Veterinarian at Animal Healthcare Associates, Martha's Vineyard. Listeners also call in with stories and questions about their pets.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
