Pup Psych 101
Best pod for training a pup into a well-adjusted adult dog. It's explained from the dog's point of thinking.which makes it relatable, understandable and logical. Thanks for sharing..
Informative, but intro is too long.
I like the information provided in each podcast, but the intro is too long. The music (especially), synopsis intro & advertisement just make for a less than tolerable wait. 😴Unfortunately, because of this, many potential listeners may never become loyal listeners. 🙁
