VIDEO: Behind the Scenes at ITV's This Morning with Daniel the Spaniel

From Wag! Editor Deana Selby, Daniel's owner:

Our Veterinary Director, Paula Boyden, was invited to appear on the sofa on ITV’s This Morning.

The topic was obese dogs, and Paula chatted with Philip Schofield, Holly Willoughby and Louie Spence about easy ways to keep your dog fit, plus some top tips for getting a lardy dog back into good shape.

Daniel the Spaniel was invited along to demonstrate how easy it is for a dog to learn to use agility equipment. I was very proud of him – he went through the tunnel like a dream on his very first attempt.

Phyllis, 13, a rather portly, genteel Staffy who is currently at Dogs Trust Salisbury and looking for a great home, provided some excellent barking throughout the item! Her Canine Carer, Tery, says she’s been at the centre for two months and would absolutely LOVE a new home please (follow the link to the centre page for contact details).

In all there were seven dogs sharing the This Morning Green room – cue much barking and some super cute behaviour. And perhaps the odd growl. Here’s Paula in the midst of the dogular mayhem…


Huge thanks to all at This Morning for giving us this great opportunity to spread the word about responsible dog oownership.
