SESSION 46: Responding to Disagreements and some Hate Mail
In episode 46, I respond to some of the disagreement emails and some genuine hate mail that was prompted by podcast 45. I’m letting you behind the scenes in this podcast a little bit to illustrate a couple things that may help you guys. Firstly, I wanted you guys to hear about this debate because, undoubtedly, if you ever put even a regular collar on your dog, you may get lectures about how mean and cruel you are to your dog. Understanding some of this discussion may help you put that sort of feedback in context. Additionally though, some of this feedback is a good, case in point, example of some myths and misunderstandings that some people have when training dogs.

I’ve been training people and dogs in Seattle for the last decade and a half. My main focus when working with clients every week in one-on-one, private lessons is to help people learn to get their dogs to a functional level so that they can actually enjoy spending time every day with their dog instead of stressing about their dog’s behavior issues.
