Session 95: Interview with Ruth Elliott: Greyhounds and Contrast Training

June 3rd, 2020|

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 […]

Emergency Session 94: Phase Two of The “Down” Method

May 13th, 2020|

In this episode we move to phase TWO of the “down” challenge for food motivated and non-food motivated dogs.

April 3rd, 2020|
