Join host Robert Forto as he welcomes Camille Ritchick, the host of a popular YouTube channel called Meeler Husky to Dog Works Radio. Camille has a YouTube channel called Meeler Husky where she posts tips, reviews, fun things to do with your huskies, and other creative dog-related content. Her videos feature her 2 huskies Phoenix and Falcon (who sadly passed away last year) and her adventures in being their human. Although they are not related, both huskies were diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy by the age of 3. Though her experience with her dogs and the amazing people she has connected with on the platform, Camille’s mission is to continuously learn and share how to be a better dog parent. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, her toddler nicknamed ‘Tiny’, and the queen of the pack, Phoenix. What we talk about on this episode:
- We talk about her dogs and canine epilepsy
- How she got started on YouTube
- The life of a doggie YouTube host
