    Episode 127 - It's All About the DOG - Oscar Mora

    There are so many things Oscar and I cover in this podcast that your head will spin. From the top level competitive training to dangerous and deadly dogs.
    Oscar Mora is back and we have a lot to talk about. Oscar and I have been training together and filming together for a new project that will be out in the next couple of months. Besides that Oscar has been a huge help with my new puppy Schmuley and for that I am very grateful.
    Oscar is not only a GREAT dog trainer, but a man of his word, a man of high character and a good friend.... even though I'm old enough to be his dad! LOL!
    We talk about Malinois, protection dogs, sport dogs, Corsos and just about every other dog - and the conversation could go on forever! I respect Oscar's training approach as well as his character as a decent man... a family man, a competitor and a friend.

    Mission K9 Rescue - Rescuing and Reuniting Our Military Working Dogs

    Mission K9 Rescue is a great organization that helps military dogs. These dogs need special help to be transported back to the USA and get reunited with their handlers. When it comes time to transporting these dogs Mission K9 steps in. They also help handlers get reunited with their canines and help get Contract Working Dogs back to the USA and adopted. It's a great mission they are doing and I really enjoyed this chat with Bob in this podcast.

    Belgian Malinois are an amazing breed and if you want to learn as much as you can about them, check out this podcast with Peter and Connie Scherk. Peter is a 3X World Champion, FCI / FMBB Champion and his wife Connie also a fierce competitor. But beyond that, they are truly dog LOVERS as you'll see in this podcast. They are among the very top authorities when it comes to the Belgian Malinois.
    In this podcast we focus a lot on malinois puppies, breeding, selecting and training them for protection sports such as IGP / IPO / Schutzhund. This is a great chat with so much information about malinois puppies, that anyone who either has a malinois or is interested in getting one, should listen. Truly one of my favorite podcasts on the topic.
    We talk about training the puppies in the right steps to be solid sport protection dogs, the how's and why's.... We talk about how they select world champion dogs and their passion for the sport and breed.

    Episode 123 - A Dog Trainer's Journey - Manny Guerra

    I first met Manny around 2012 when he was working at the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. He asked me to come help him with behavioral programs and some troubled dogs. I obliged and we became friends and over the years he spent several opportunities training with me.
    Manny is a genuine human being who loves dogs and his passion shows through in his work. He has come a long way from those days, and now runs his own training facility in Palm Springs as well as so much more. I'm really proud of the person he is and has become. We share some great stories in this chat that will be inspirational to anyone who wants to become a dog trainer and anyone who loves dogs.

Alicia Sweezer ,

Great Podcast!

I really loved the episode on pitbulls! So many breeds are misjudged and misunderstood because of various things. Thanks for creating a place for dog owners to learn from.

This Is The Crowe ,

This podcast is amazing!

I love this podcast! I started listening to this podcast a few weeks ago whenever I wanted to listen to a podcast about dog training. I’m so glad I found this one. I’m currently a kennel tech at a dog training facility. I’m 17, but whenever I turn 18 my goal is to become a dog trainer. I think Robert’s opinion on things is really interesting, helpful and important. Every time I listen to an episode I come out learning something new. I also love the names he has for his dogs. I’ve shared this podcast with my friends and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! 🐾

Omg! Common sense dog training!

Love your down to earth attitude, common sense and compassion for dogs. I especially appreciate how you are willing to address some the many elephants in the room of dog training and rescue. Your years of experience in the trenches of real world rescue make you an excellent source of real information. Thank you!!
