In this episode the girls talk about all things cars. Sarah kidnaps her dog Ernie, Stacey reads a scary fairytale about racoons and Ness introduces us to Bin Chickens.
Bin Chickens (or Australian White Ibis) - and they are actually natives to Australia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_white_ibis
In this episode, Stacey, Sarah & (Nice)Ness take turns role playing between the owner of a dog with separation anxiety, their friends (and the sometimes poor advice they give) and a specialist trainer (ie one of them). Sassy Stacey enjoys some wood working while Sarah cops some doggy diarrhea in cold, dark and gloomy UK ... And by the way, it turns out Ness is ALWAYS right!
In this week's episode we meet behavioral neuroscientist Marsha Penner who talks to the girls about how the brain functions and how to relate it to separation anxiety training.
