    315. Should We Treat Dogs Like Animals?

    In this episode, I talk about a question I think about a lot, "Should we treat dogs like animals?" and what that means. Dogs are sentient beings with unique emotional needs, preferences, and behaviors. I discuss the importance of acknowledging and honoring these individual differences to ensure their well-being.

    312. Adventure Dog Pressures

    In this episode, I talk all about the pressures of having an adventure dog and how to handle them. One of the main challenges when hiking and camping with your dog is managing the duration of the activity. Hiking often takes two to five hours, which is much longer than your typical daily walk. I also share practical tips and tricks to help you and your dog handle these extended adventures, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for both of you.

Great podcast for guardians of “difficult” dogs

I’ve just recently started listening but this is quickly becoming my favorite dog training podcast. I like that Rachel’s advice is practical for being out in the real world. I also appreciate how candid she is about her own dogs.

Good topics

All the topics are so interesting and I like that the episodes aren’t dragged too long. I learn a lot from the content!
as a foreign listener the only thing that makes it hard to listen to more than one episode in a row is that she says “right” a looot. I can’t not hear it anymore, which is probably more my problem than hers.

Quality information from a fabulous trainer

I am a positive reinforcement trainer (who has had the pleasure of getting to know Rachel as I also live nearby in Colorado), and her podcast is top notch. It’s full of practical advice for owners without talking down to you. Rachel is an amazing trainer and person and I highly recommend this podcast to anyone with dogs!
