The multi award-winning Bedtime Explorers podcast, renowned for helping children drift into a peaceful night’s sleep, is loved by children and families all around the world. In season 11, which features 10 episodes and is exclusive and free on LiSTNR, mindfulness coach, Amy Taylor-Kabbaz talks about dogs and their different characters, and how kids can channel these.


Episode one is all about the Labrador and how these puppy pals are loving and helpful, with Amy suggesting, “Let’s be helpful and kind and full of love like our Puppy Pal, the Labrador.”


The Border Collie is featured in episode two as inclusive, playful and full of fun, the Blue Heeler as loyal, the German Shepherd as strong, brave and protective, the Poodle as smart and curious, the Dachshund as positive and energetic, and the Afghan Hound as independent and loving.


In each episode Amy gently guides children in how they can be just like their favourite puppy pals, as they wind down and prepare for sleep.
