ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Pet Talk is a segment airing during 7@four each Wednesday. You can send us your questions through our website and ask professionals what you should do for your pet.

Question of the week: “Whenever I take my dog out for a walk and she sees another dog, she starts pulling hard on the leash, barking excessively, and even drooling and trying to lunge. It’s so embarrassing and I’m worried about her! What should I do?”

We spoke to Julie Rickmond with the Roanoke Valley SPCA and she touched on what to do in this type of situation.
