Food for Thought: Wagging Tails

@BFPLNY Instagram Live

The year 2020 was like no other, and we found ourselves pressing pause, pivoting, disconnecting, and disengaging. Moving forward in 2021, we are coming up for air and figuring out how we press play on our lives.

The Food for Thought series continues its pursuit of three goals – to restart, revive, and reconnect. This month’s topic is pet care & ownership. Join the conversation on July 22 at 12:30PM ET on @BFPLNY’s Instagram Live, with Isabel Klee, Director of Content at The Dogist, and Andrea Arden, Author, dog training and pet expert, who will discuss the impact our furry friends can have on our lives, give advice to first time pet owners, offer training tips & more.

We want to hear from you!

Submit a question anonymously for Isabel and Andrea to answer during their discussion on the 22nd.

Similar to last year, the Food for Thought series features influential voices from various fields and the public is invited to directly engage in the conversation by submitting a question anonymously in advance of the event.
