I sat down with Dr Kristina Jackson from Omega Quant to discuss some of the health benefits for our dogs.
Omega Quant has an Omega level test for your dog, and within 10 days you'll get a detailed readout of your dog's levels. I suggest doing this before adding or removing fish oils to / from your dog's diet.

SEAL Cairo The Malinois & Will Chesney
Today I got my wish, to talk to Will Chesney and hear first hand what it was like to be at the scene of one of the most famous missions of all times.
Will and I talk about Cairo, how they met, training, living with him and that fateful night. We share the story of when Cairo was shot and Will thought he would lose him. As well as the heroic life that Cairo led until his last day.
I highly recommend you read Will's book, NO ORDINARY DOG!
Training the Dogs of War with Steve Stoops
Steve is the go to guy when government agencies look for badass dogs and how to train them. He has been working dogs in this capacity for 30+years. Although he won't (or can't) confess to the agencies he works for, you'll see from this conversation that his work includes some of the top agencies in the US government.
His knowledge and skillset in teaching assault and detection dogs is unequalled and this chat is an amazing insight into a realm that you cannot break.

Grieving the loss of my dog
So glad I found this. Robert is very down to earth and realistic on this subject. When I was searching the internet on this, I mostly found info on the rainbow bridge, or tapping. I wanted to hear with from someone i could relate with. He talks about his experience, and it prepares you.
One of my fav podcasts
I absolutely love Robert’s podcast, his knowledge experience and especially his no BS approach is great. I wait with anticipation for every episode to drop. He also really helped changed my views on lots of things so thank you for that!
Thoroughly enjoy your podcasts. Love that you have balance in your training eg. praise and/or consequence. Wonderful. I have recently become a member.
