“Dog Blog” Encourages Happy Dogs, Responsible Humans on the Lancashire Moors

Mar 12th, 2007 | By | Category: General

Pippo the Podcast DogSpecifically for Lancashire (UK) dog owners, the 25-minute “Paws on the Moors” audio play follows the adventures of six dogs on the moors through their fictitious blog.¬† (PodcastingNews cannot resist a story that lets us say something catchy like “Dog Blog.”¬† Try typing that three times, really quickly: dog blog, dog blog, dog blog…).

The podcast has been developed by the Moors for the Future Partnership to encourage responsible dog ownership on the moors, particularly during the bird nesting and lambing season, which spans the period March 1 to July 31.

The UK Kennel Club, the governing body for dogs and their humans, supports the podcast. Access Advisor Stephen Jenkinson said: “This entertaining, informative approach gives people excellent advice about keeping their dogs happy and safe on the moors, while protecting rare birds and wildlife. A pet roaming off-lead at the wrong time or place can cause distress and serious injury for dogs, farm animals and wildlife alike.”

The podcast tells the story of Barney, a young collie-cross, over the course of a year.¬† He learns about the delights and dangers a dog can find on and around the moors. Through his “blog”, Barney makes new friends, including two experienced working dogs that help to reform the mischievous Bingo, a Lakeland terrier who likes to bite off more than he can chew.

The podcast was launched at Crufts, the world’s biggest and best dog show, and can be downloaded from the Moors for the Future website www.moorsforthefuture.org.uk by following the links to “Paws on the moors” pages. There is also a wealth of information for dog owners, including information on pet friendly accommodation and local vets.

      How to protect yourself and your dog from a possible shocking or electrocution – http://www.StreetZaps.com.

      Greetings! Unfortunately, most dog walkers discover a danger, only sadly, when victimized and so I wanted to inform you of http://www.StreetZaps.com, a timely and useful tool intended to reduce the year-round risk of injury and fatality from contact voltage. And so you are aware, I confer with Con Edison’s Stray Voltage and Public Affairs Units and was the first non-electrical representative to be invited to the Jodie Lane Fourth National Conference last year. It is my firm wish that Dog Blog will disseminate this vital public service as quickly and as widely as possible to preclude more tragedies. Further, the predictable seasonal incidents surge is imminent.

      Thank you in advance and I look forward to hearing from you.

      In appreciation and with best regards,

      Blair Sorrel
