Tips & Awareness for Happy Tails
Twice a month, host Mia and regular co-host, Cathy, bring you entertaining health, safety, lifestyle, and training information for your cats and dogs.

Mia is an animal lover, who is lucky enough to be owned by her kitty, Mazel, and senior pug, Mabel. In her off-time she and her wife volunteer at a goat rescue, watch Golden Girls & Psych marathons, and celebrate Halloween and Christmas all year round.

Cathy is a certified dog trainer and behavior consultant who believes that dog training is a lifestyle and should never feel like a chore. When she's not talking dogs, she's probably reading about them while enjoying a nice glass of pinot noir.
