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. I’ll talk about an interesting discovery from listeners from the Czech Republic and Sweden and how their “crazy stay in place” situation is nothing like that! Life is proceeding pretty much […]

Session 93: The Say and Show Method of “Down” (part two)

April 30th, 2020|

In this episode we’ll jump to a critical point with the “down” challenge, that uses no food and instead focuses on the “say and show” method. It’s not unlike the say and show version of sit; but some there are some angles and positions that are distinctly different.

There are two […]

Session 92: The “Down” Command (part one)

April 22nd, 2020|

In this episode we’re going to jump into another obedience skills challenge. This one is focused on the ‘down’ command.

This is an important lesson for small puppies as they develop, and even rescue adult dogs in instances where they may not have received much training, or were last trained years […]

Session 91: The “Sit” Command (Part THREE-Sit and Say Progression)

April 8th, 2020|

While you’re all stuck at home, hopefully you’ve all stayed safe – and hopefully you’ve been working on parts one and two of the “sit” command with your dog! In today’s episode we’ll work on sit by moving toward the “stay” progression; and I’d highly encourage you to go back […]

Session 90: The “Sit” Command (part two-Say and Show Method)

April 3rd, 2020|

In today’s episode I’m ramping up the “sit” command in part two of this series. This is also a good step for adult dogs who have a pretty good grasp already. If you need to review step one, click here. In this session: […]

Session 89: The “Sit” Command (part one)

March 31st, 2020|

In today’s episode we’re going to work on our obedience skills challenges while we’re still confined inside with our dogs! Today’s skill at first glance may seem like one you think you already know…but there are some key components to this command – whether your dog is “food” motivated, adult […]

Session 88: The “Place” Command (part two)

March 27th, 2020|

Today’s emergency session 88 is part two of the “place” command. We’re going to take it up a notch from yesterday’s work. We’ll look at increasing levels of difficulty. We’ll also talk to those with older puppies and adult dogs, and those that aren’t as “food motivated”. The goal being […]

Session 87: Introduction to the “Place” Command for Puppies (part one)

March 26th, 2020|

Today’s emergency session 87 is a fun exercise, and part one of a session to help your puppy learn the “place” command. As part of this exercise we’ll talk about teaching him/her to use their dog bed.

We’ll go over how to analyze and learn about the personality of your puppy […]

March 24th, 2020|

In today’s session I’ll give you a few tips for creating some fun and interesting mental and physical exercises for your dog while “sheltering at home”. I’ve also decided to outline the entire subject below and put in a few links for items that might be useful during these sessions. […]
