Steve, Nat & Corrin are thrilled to be joined by Chirag Patel this week who is one half, along with the wonderful Nanci Creedon,  of a hosting super team for a conversation about their new TV show Cats and Dogs at War. If you haven't caught the show yet you MUST! In a world where it seems all too easy to shout about what you don't like on the telly box, this show has come along and shown just how to make animal training on television the RIGHT way! Unfortunately Nanci couldn't join us for the chat but that just means we have to have the dynamic duo back at some point (especially to hear about all the out takes). We also get into training techniques, reaching the human side of the equation and just how to be generally better in a world of pointing fingers.

Hope you all enjoy x
