Who’s the Boss?

We uncover who really is the boss between pet parent and their pet in our light-hearted Who’s the boss interviews.  ‘The boss’ is all about good pet guardianship, it is NOT about dominating your dog, now considered an outdated and inhumane approach to dog training.

Past Who’s the Boss pet parents interviews include Bondi Vet Dr Lisa Chimes, Bondi Rescue Andrew ‘Reidy’ Reid, Wonderdogs trainer Kelly Gill, Victorian Truffle Farmer, Comedian Josh Thomas, literary expert Susannah Fullerton, PetRescue Co-Founder Vickie Davy and renowned animal behaviourist Dr Joanne Righetti and many others.
