Onthank’s good friend and fellow animal advocate Jill Rappaport will be the show’s rescue correspondent and will be a frequent guest.

Jill has transformed her passion into purpose- all to raise awareness and funds for rescue and adoption. She and Onthank have partnered to develop the Rubie Roadie Cuddler Bed, part of Jill’s Rescued Me Collection to benefit animals in need.

Onthank wants listeners to be part of his show. “I’m your resource for all things improving life with your dog.” His website not only includes many informative blog posts and information about the show but also has a section “Ask the Canine Master” questions where anyone can ask questions and post videos and/or photos of their dogs. He promises to do his very best to respond.
