This is Discover Your Dog. The show that demystifies your dog s behavior so you can get the best results from your dog training.
Professional dog trainer Bennie Copeland teaches us that we are ALWAYS communicating with our dogs. The goal of this show is to build your awareness of WHAT you are communicating to your dog at any given moment.
Lively back-and-forth discussions between Bennie and non-dog-owning co-host Devin Best reveal a wealth of information: dog training techniques and methods; underlying reasons why these techniques work; real examples from real families and happy dog stories.
This show is brought to you by FamilyDogFusion, the online training community where dog lovers from all walks of life can learn how to help their newest puppy or even their oldest dog become the best, happiest member of the family.

Recently found this podcast and am enjoying all the tips and new knowledge I’m getting on how to better understand and communicate with my dog!
We got to work with Bennie in Nashville and he trained our dog & it was awesome! He’s a great trainer and I’m glad he’s got this podcast to reinforce some of the things he taught us. He’s a great storyteller and I love the focus on the psychology of the owner! Thanks Bennie!
