    Puppy Biting or Nipping: The Big Picture & How To Stop The Biting - Part 2 - Episode 32

    Puppy Biting or Nipping: The Big Picture & How To Stop The Biting - Part 2 - Episode 32

    In this episode and the previous one, I talk with Jeff Feuerwerker (aka “Jeff, the dog trainer”) about puppy biting, or nipping as he calls it.  Jeff goes into great detail about the bigger picture and why this happens.  It is so chock full of good information and “a-ha moments” that I made it into a 2 part episode series.  Whether you currently have a puppy who is nipping or not, this information is very interesting and useful for all dog parents.  But, for those with pups who are biting or if you will be getting a puppy soon, this is truly a “must-listen.”

    Lost Dog Series: Expert Advice On Both Finding And Preventing A Lost Dog - Part 1 - Episode 29

    To finish out the series in this episode and the next episode, I talk with a dog finder specialist, Devon Thomas Threadwell, who co-founded a non-profit organization called The Retrievers.  There is a wealth of information contained in these episodes to help dog parents out there find their lost dogs and bring them home safely.  There are valuable tips and things I never knew that we can do to prevent our dogs from ever being lost in the first place, as well.  The discussion of dog behavior and the well-tested strategies shared in these episodes are so interesting.  I hope you find it as interesting, educational and enlightening as I did.

    Lost Dog Series: The Story of Beckett - A Dog Parent’s Worst Nightmare & All That Was Learned - Part 2 - Episode 28

    Lost Dog Series: The Story of Beckett - A Dog Parent’s Worst Nightmare & All That Was Learned - Part 2 - Episode 28

    In this episode (028), we finish up the story of Beckett and how his parents ended up finding and saving him!  The strategy that works is so counter-intuitive.  I think it’s something that every dog parent should know, just in case.  And if you hear of a dog being lost after listening to this series, then you’ll have great information to pass along that will help in the efforts of bringing that dog home safely.  I’m hoping this helps many dogs and their people...with a strong rippling effect of passing along very important information to help when this tragedy becomes a reality for dog parents out there.

    Lost Dog Series: The Story of Beckett - A Dog Parent’s Worst Nightmare & All That Was Learned - Part 1 - Episode 27

    In this episode (027), we begin a 4 part podcast series all about lost dogs.  What to do if your dog gets lost, what to do ahead of time with the hope that this never happens to you, because as dedicated dog parents, it's good to be prepared, just in case this horrible nightmare happens.  We start off by sharing a story of a lost dog named Beckett who lives in Iowa.  In parts 1 and 2, I talk with his mom and dad about our shared experience in rescuing Beckett.  It’s a very interesting and eye-opening story with a happy ending, which every dog lover will enjoy.
