LIVE SHOW RECAP:
We had a great time with our guest Jennifer Tilman, author of Grooming Tales from A to Z.
Insights we gained from our questions and answers to Jennifer were…
Divas: Best dog to get for a family with young children?
Jennifer: I recommend a Black Lab Retriever because despite their size they are the most docile and easy going. Plus they will just walk away instead of getting impatient when they’ve had enough of the children.
Divas: What insight do you have for Diva Gina considering adopting a greyhound?
Jennifer: Greyhounds are very sweet dogs and great to adopt after their racing careers because they need someplace to go and they are very gentle but when it comes to disciplining them, you must be very careful to not break their spirit. They are so gentle.
Divas: What do you think are the smartest dogs?
Jennifer: Border Collies, Poodles and even Dalmatians, which can also be manipulative! Jennifer once found herself flip-flopped in a game of chase with her Dalmatian, and wondering, how did I become the one chasing?
Dogs have amazing language skills. They understand our language (without speaking baby talk to it.)
Maturity-wise, our dogs grow to the maturity level of about a 3 year old toddler. They are more intelligent than they get credit for.
At the end of this show, it remained a mystery why some owners actually look like their dogs!
