33. So Your Dog Reacted, Now What? Part 2
This episode is a continuation of last week's discussion about changing our mindset about our dogs' reactions. In this episode, we discuss what we actually do with ourselves and with our dogs in a physical way, now that we've already addressed the mindset.

32. So Your Dog Reacted, Now what?
If your dog has ever reacted, then I bet that it's made you feel some sort of way. In this episode, we're discussing the two main reasons why our dog's reactions impact us and what we can do about that. If we change our mindset, put into perspective, and have realistic expectations, we can set ourselves up for success. The only way to help your dog feel safe and comfortable in the world and to work on training techniques is to get outside and train and practice. Don't let the worry or anxiety of a possible reaction deter you from that! Check out my shop and download the May activity workbook to have an awesome month of May with your dog?

28. How Veterinary Medicine is Failing our Imperfect Dogs
This is a lengthy episode, but it's because the topic is so important. This was sparked by an email response I received from a vet. That email response essentially confirmed my fears that I have been worried about as I've witnessed things happen first hand as a vet tech. Veterinary appointments are incredibly hard for a lot fo dogs, and it is our job and duty to make it easier for them; it's our job and duty to not give up on these dogs that have a hard time. Those dogs are just as worthy and deserving of the best care possible, just as much as the "easy" dogs. If you want to listen to Buster's Story to hear about his journey in more detail, you can do that by clicking here. Otherwise, please feel free to reach out to me on Instagram, especially if this topic resonates with you in any way - if you struggle with this, or if you have ideas on how to make this better, or even if you're just a veterinary professional who wants to do better for these dogs. My DMs are always open to everyone! Alternatively, you can also email me - email@example.com.

Training Tip Tuesday - How to Teach Place
In this episode, I give step by step directions on how to start teaching a place or station behavior. This is a foundation behavior that is useful in so many different scenarios, and I think all dogs should know this. The main things to remember are: 1) Simply reset and put your dog back on the station if he leaves. 2) As you increase duration or distance, make sure you increase your rate of reinforcement. 3) Remember to experiment with the rate of reinforcement and slowly increase time between treats, otherwise you risk a dog that gets frustrated and overzealous.

Training Tip Tuesday - High Value Treats
I've decided to make a new series on the podcast! Tuesdays will now be Training Tip Tuesdays. This will be super short episodes with one specific piece of advice or or something to think about the next time you go hiking with your dog or in your next training session. Really though, I would love to answer YOUR questions in these episodes! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or DM me on Instagram, or you can even leave me a voicemail! I want to make sure these episodes provide value to you but are short, sweet, and to the point so you can start implementing them or thinking about them right away. In this episode, I provide a list of high value dog treats. You have to make sure that the value of your treat is adequate for the training session you're doing. You don't go to work for free, so why should your dog? Some of my favorite high value treats include hotdog slices, cheddar cheese slices, lunch meat or pepperoni, freeze dried liver, plain boiled chicken/beef/pork, and liverwurst.

In this episode, we discuss why harnesses are NOT the problem. Harnesses do not ultimately encourage every dog to pull. In fact, harnesses can be used easily with great success. We discuss the differences between common harnesses on the market, and why some are not recommended and could be problematic for dogs.
