This week’s Talking Pets show included:

Let your dog lite up
Walking your dog in the dark can be dangerous. Most of us choose not to do it at all and, if we do, we would not dare let our dog off the lead. Dog Lite solves this problem with their range of LED accessories for pets. We spoke with co-founder of Dog Lite Chris Jones…

Snuffle with your Fur Legged Family
We all love our fur legged family members and this website is a new concept in pet shopping. It’s goods made by you, for pets and their owners and it helps rehome pets while fundraising. What a great concept. You can find out more from Bill Powers

Are you a senior? With a pet? Many older people would love to have a pet but are just not sure that they can cope with the vet bills and other expenses. Pet Guardians is a not-for-profit organisation, set up to aid elderly Australians through their online store. We chatted with Dr Peter Brown, founder of this charity and vet at Pet Doctors.

Hermit Crabs
When you are looking for an alternative pet, then a hermit crab or two may be just the thing. Giving hours of viewing pleasure, easy maintenance and an app that can encourage your kids to look after these tiny creatures by themselves, what’s not to love about hermit crabs. The Krabooz is a hermit crab system and we spoke with India Bent all about it…
