Victoria Stilwell graciously agreed to be interviewed by Vegan Petman, and over the course of this nearly 6 minute video, she reveals a number of things that fans may not have known about her. She discusses why she never had a companion animal growing up and how she was ultimately able to get her “animal fix.” She also (candidly) discusses why shows like the Westminster Dog Show have their proper place in the pet world, and why we need to maintain breeding dogs in a responsible way.

Victoria even tackles the controversial “show dogs vs. shelter dogs” issue. Viewers will also learn why it’s so important that pet owners use positive reinforcement as a training tool instead of the widely disputed “dominance” strategy.
