Raise The Woof

Dogs are simply amazing. They have become part of our family and an integral part of our society. Unfortunately, some people see dogs as property instead of a family member.

Time to Raise the Woof and tell the stories that are long overdue.

We welcome Safe Humane Chicago’s President and Executive Director Cynthia Bathurst. I remember meeting her for the 1st time in 2012 and thinking, “damn. She is a badass.” It was great because she was one of the 1st people I met at Chicago Animal Control and it lead me to all the meaningful work they do in and out of the shelter and I ended up embracing SHC dogs.

The pet business is booming...for good and for bad. I loved talking to Dana Dubriwny about it because she is really at the pulse of it with her dog-walking and pet-sitting business Chicago Pet Sitters.

It was a great conversation, with a side of Richard Branson.
