In this second of a two-part series, Kate and Don interview dog trainer and author Linda Case about her book Dog Smart: Evidence-based Training with The Science Dog. In the last episode, we focused on foundational material covered in the book. This week we get into the nitty-gritty of dog training and talk about:

  • The benefits of working with a professional dog training instructor.
  • Qualities to look for in a dog training instructor and what to avoid.
  • Why it is so important to teach students how a dog learns and the most important things we can teach them on this topic.
  • What is clicker training and why it is so useful when training a dog?
  • The power of using food as a reward when training a dog.
  • How we help students address undesirable behaviors, they experience with their dogs.
  • The four most valuable behaviors we teach our students to train their dogs.

If you want to learn about your dog and how to live together happily, you will want to listen to this show and read Linda’s book.

Podcast – Going to the Dog Park – Is It A Good Idea for You and Your Dog?

< Click to Listen to Podcast >

In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from April 6th, 2019, Don and Kate discuss how dog parks can be a great outlet for many dogs, but how they can also create behavioral problems for some dogs. They are not always a good choice for dogs, especially dogs that are in any way reactive towards people or other dogs. Kate and Don also discuss the characteristics that make a dog likely to enjoy the dog park experience as well as temperament traits that indicate a dog should avoid the dog park. The show is a companion to Don’s article in the April edition of the Downeast Dog News and on his blog, Words-Woofs-Meows.com [ FMIhttp://bit.ly/GoingToTheDogPark ]. The show is also a preview to two presentations Don will be giving on dog parks in May of 2019, that will provide attendees with information that will help them make their trip to the dog park fun for both them and their dog. You can find details on these presentations at http://bit.ly/Blog-UpcomingEvents
