Susana Mendoza Supports Task Force on Pets

It’s true, for the second consecutive week, Chicago Mayoral Candidate Susana Mendoza was a no show for my WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Pet World show. And you can hear that I’m a bit annoyed. After all, this is I believe the first time a guest is a no show two weeks in a row, and I’ve…

Love Your Pets For Valentine’s Day

How do you tell your pets “I Love You” on Valentine’s Day? Of course, you can buy a special treat (naturally, not chocolate). If you have a pet lizard, maybe Valentine’s is the day for fattening but yummy mealworms. Ferrets might enjoy extra playtime and the same is true for Labrador Retrievers. Thing about our…

President Trump Apparently Doesn’t Think Much of Dogs

So, why doesn’t Donald Trump have a dog? I’m not the only one who’s wondered. “How does the president not have a dog?” Barbra Streisand said recently to the Los Angeles Times. “He’s the first president in 120 years that doesn’t have a dog in the White House.” The explanation from Trump came as he talked appropriately…

Eliminating Puppy Mills: Banning Pet Store Sales of Dogs and Cats Is Only a Start

The real problem with eradicating puppy mills is that somehow some way the State Departments of Agricultures and for that matter U.S. Department of Agriculture look the other way, and at times so does law enforcement. That is a sad reality. And people knowingly or not continue to keep puppy mills in business by purchasing…

Tips from American Animal Hospital Association Veterinarian, Keeping Pets Safe in the Cold

American Animal Hospital Association senior veterinary officer Dr. Heather Loenser is all about keeping our pets safe in the cold. Here’s something not talked about a lot, but Loenser talks about it on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show, that’s dehydration. Outside dogs’ water bowls can freeze, and water is otherwise impossible to…

Stories Behind the Fire Killing 30 Dogs in West Chicago

Thirty dogs died in a tragic fire on January 14 at Bully Life Animal Services (formerly D and D Kennels),  2N442 County Farm Road, West Chicago. Lots of lessons, even those with national impact. A gofundme page popped instantly, as Garrett Mercado, caretaker of the kennel did tragically lose his personal dogs and all his processions in the…

Jane Goodall: Nobel Prize for Peace

Jane Goodall is the most inspirational person I’ve ever met. I’ve had the distinct honor to interview her on several occasions, though it has been several years. Of course, she’s a famed primatologist – but she is so much more than the person who taught us a bit more about ourselves but better understanding chimpanzees.…

Dog Training Techniques Matter When Saving Rescue and Shelter Dogs on WGN Radio

The latest in a parade of Chicago Mayoral candidates to appear on my WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Pet World was supposed to be Susana Mendoza. However, it turned out she had her phone on mute (from an earlier appearance) and forgot to turn the volume back on. I understand – as I’ve done the same.…

Resolutions for Pets from the President

As we slide into February, in January I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. John de Jong ,president of the American Veterinary Medical Association about his resolutions for pets in 2019 on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show. Resolution #1: Pets to get annual or best bi-annal check-ups. We now know, as…

At What Cost Is Saving Dogs Acceptable?

At what cost do you save a life? Or is that not even the right question to ask? What motivates this piece is a local dog trainer, near where I live, who was recently “outed” for alleged use of aversive methods to save lives. That in itself sounds like a contradiction doesn’t it? When animal…
