Mishal and Robson Celebrity: Mishal Husain
On BBC World, Mishal is currently the news anchor presenting the 1300-1600 GMT slot on Mondays to Thursdays, as well as some national news bulletins over the weekends and some One O'clock News bulletins on Fridays. In the UK she is a regular presenter of BBC One's Breakfast.

Trainer: Julie Hindle
Julie has been training dogs and practising behavioural therapy for the past 18 years, and has spent many years specialising in the canine-human interface. Julie owns Tibetan terriers and a German shepherd-Northern Inuit crossbreed. Particular fields of interests include showing the Tibetan terriers, and training her own dogs in various obedience disciplines.

While Julie specializes in 'tricks', she is conscious the industry has become bogged down by the specifics of the word. People have accused it of being degrading towards the dog, but in fact it's just a fun and creative way of interacting with the dog and stimulating the dog's brain.

Julie's trained dogs for a number of television appearances including Blue Peter, S Club TV, Animals Do The Funniest Things, and BBC Crufts Series. At The Kennel Club's invitation Julie has made appearances at Crufts and Discover Dogs, demonstrating and educating audiences for five years in a row.
