When we first began the Doggie Dish podcasts our equipment wasn't all that great and we had no idea how to edit, so some of the podcasts we put up aren't easy to listen to. We are in the process of polishing up all the shows and or completely re-recording the really bad ones. So if you run across one that needs to be worked on please bring it to our attention and we'll get to it right away. Please bear with us in the mean time. Thank you!
Kim & Laura discuss some myths about dog behavior and training. Find out how some of these ideas came about and whether or not they are true. Feel free to contact us with ideas you've heard of and maybe we can tell you if they are fact or indeed a myth.
Behavior is rarely isolated and more often than not one bad behavior can lead to another, more serious behavior if we don't see the potential connection. This episode discusses how to make those connections to prevent possible future behaviors from cropping up.
Kim & Laura discuss what happens when our dogs don't like the things we want or expect them to like. Whether it's playing fetch, riding in the car or even other people & kids. It's important for us to understand what our dog is actually capable of instead of having our own goals and thrusting them upon our dogs even if they don't have the capacity to reach those goals. Just because you like it doesn't mean they will.
Kim & Laura discuss the benefits of why toys should be allowed in puppy classes, why a very popular training method out there doesn't allow toys, and the disadvantages of not allowing them. #toysinpuppyclass
