This week I chat to Caroline Zambrano, Australian Pet Journalist about her career as a pet writer, her life with pets and the current love of her life, Cruz.

Show notes:

Caroline tells me about her dog Cruz (1:00) his quirky habits, the trials of trainng and his favourite treats. We discuss how she got into Nosework (16:40), what its all about and how working with Cruz has made her a more conscious parent.

Cruz loves to play and we discuss the best games and toys Caroline has found for such a giant dog (27:35) but despite this, he’s also an extremely calming dog in Carolines family (35:44).

We get into Carolines life with dogs, growing up in Turkey (36:50) and how losing them over the years affected her (45:40), her career, and her inital bonding with Cruz (59:44).

We get discussing Caroline’s career in pet journalism (1:00:42) and how she initially wanted to be a vet. Her first job as a news reporter (1:10:45) didnt turn out quite as she expected but it was a start that led her to become the editor of Dogs Life Magazine (1:14:38) and PR work. We discuss the favourite story she’s written (1:27:38) and her ideal piece (1:32:48).
