First, I hope that everyone has stayed safe and healthy through what may have been the worst of the stay-at-home orders that you may have been subject to. We went through a sort of “emergency sessions” period where the podcast episodes focused on specific things to do with your dog – and as a result we put some of the interviews we had scheduled on hold. Today is the first episode of one of those interviews.
What Is Contrast Training?
I sat down with Ruth Elliott and talked about a very unique type of training. Ruth is based in Australia, and got into her unique style of training, how she got started, and some of the interesting restrictions to training methods that exist in Australia.
Ruth is a greyhound specialist (although she trains all types of dogs). Her business is called Formal Dogs, and she trains and escorts people’s dogs to attend their owner’s weddings! This is the first I’ve heard of this and think you’ll appreciate her story and her methods as a trainer.
