Bookmark and Share
Susan's guest this week, is Toriano Sanzone, a Chicago dog trainer who will share and demonstrate yoga techniques with dogs, that not only help stretch joints and muscles but strengthens the bond between human and canine, and increases the willingness of dogs to respond to cues. Then you will learn what Reiki is, and how Toriano has used this touch technique to lessen aggression and help injured dogs recover. Live cameras are in the broadcast studio so you'll want to watch to see cute puppies doing yoga! We'll also hear about the nationwide "Letters for Pets" campaign encouraging the White House to designate a National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day from "Tails" magazine, founder, Janice Brown.

Janice Brown
Award-winning publisher, mother of three children (as well as the proud owner of two dogs and two cats) and active board member of more than one animal shelter, Janice Brown is a woman of action. "People will believe what you do, not what you say,'' she said. True to her philosophy, there is no stopping the cheerful, down-to-earth (and equally determined) Brown when it comes to what she sees as her underlying mission and the founding principle behind her overwhelmingly successful regional publication, Tails: helping animals. The founder of Tails Media Group, Inc., which provides pet owners with articles and resources, and sponsors local events, Brown launched ChicagoTails in 2000.
