We're going to be discussing the importance of decompression and enrichment for our therapy dogs and how the KONG Company product range can assist with those activities, whilst also encouraging our dogs to express their natural behaviours in a safe way. These tips and tricks are going to be game-changers for the longevity of our Therapy Dog handlers and Therapy Dogs careers.

Her passion lies in tapping into a dog’s instinctual, hardwired behaviours utilising KONG toys and educating pet parents and pet professionals how to do the same. Brittany’s primary goal is for all pet parents to have the skills to be able to biologically fulfil their pet using KONG, ensuring they live their ‘best life’ daily.

    S3:E3 Puppies are hard work!! (Therapy Dogs & Livestock Guardian Dogs)

    S3:E3 Tips When Bringing Home A Puppy.

    Welcome to another episode on the Therapy Dogs Australia Podcast! Sam's Anatolian Shepherd puppy has arrived! She is raising Kiki to be a Livestock Guardian dog for her goats (hopefully!) and it's been an absolutely crazy first week.
    There's a lot of overlap and common considerations when raising a puppy, regardless of what future you intend for them - but especially when you have bought the dog for a working role (whatever that might be).
    We will talk about the pressures of trying to raise a working dog that has a (hopefully) specific purpose - how to choose which advice to follow - and how to rise above the stress so that you can enjoy your puppy, because this amazing time really does slip by way too fast!.

    Let's get in to it!
