Meet Buddy

Our Founder's dog, a Cockapoodle, Buddy, sat in the park

Buddy the cockapoo came into our founder Becky’s life at just 8 weeks old, back in November 2015. Having done lots of research, planned everything out and being as prepared as possible it was a shock to discover there was still so much she didn’t know. Little did she know at the time that Buddy was going to be the inspiration behind K9 Nation.

We’ve created the K9 Nation Podcast! Our Founder, Becky Baker, talks to experts about topics we think will be useful to our dog owner community.

Check out the first episode, where Becky introduces the K9 Nation cares campaign and speaks to two expert guests, about all things health and welfare-related when it comes to dogs.

Rachel Bean, a qualified veterinary nurse of over 17 years and a member of the Canine & Feline Behaviour Association!

And Sue McCabe from Muttamorphosis, a specialist in dog training and behaviour, based in the North East.

In this episode, Becky is joined by two dog trainer experts to tackle the subject of undesirable behaviours in our dogs, specifically barking and reacting negatively to certain situations.

Our expert guests, shown to the right, share their tops tips and advice as well as helping us understand why our dogs behave the way they do.
