Published every Friday, the Fenzi Dog Sports Podcast is brought to you by the Fenzi Dog Sports Academy. Each episode of the Fenzi Dog Sports Podcast will feature an interview with a leading name in the competitive dog sports training world, talking in depth about issues that often get overlooked by traditional training methods.
Shade Whitesel - "From Toy Skills to a Formal Retrieve"
Shade Whitesel joins me to talk about how fluent toy play skills allow for more two-way communication during training, and how toy skills can be used to build a faster, better formal retrieve.
Amy Cook, PhD - "Thresholds and Decision Making with a Reactive Dog"
What is a threshold? Does it matter? Join Amy and I for a fascinating discussion on how what we know can impact or enable our choices when we're out with our dogs.
Megan Foster - "Building & Maintaining Your Agility Startline Stay"
What do position changes have to do with maintaining a startline stay? Join Megan and I as we chat about teaching and maintaining your startline... even once you begin competing!
Jennifer Henion - "R+ Training for Retriever Hunt Tests"
Jennifer Henion joins me on the podcast today for a conversation about hunt tests — what they are, how she wound up focused on them, and managing the culture that comes with them.
Hélène Lawler - Start Buttons, Stop Buttons, and Arousal, Oh My!
Hélène joins me to talk about the power of start buttons, stop buttons, and arousal checks when training our dog sport behaviors... and our life skills.
Deb Jones, PhD - "Canine Cooperative Care"
Have a problem when you want to do your dog's nails? Or maybe for you it's some other aspect of grooming or vet care! In this episode Deb and I talk about cooperative care training — what it is and why it matters.
Thank you, Melissa!
This might be my favorite dog podcast. I have such a HUGE appreciation for the host, Melissa! She does such a fantastic job interviewing guests without interrupting or making the show about her. I find it extremely distracting when other popular hosts constantly interrupt their guests to turn the focus back to themselves instead of letting the guest speak.
The content is fantastic, I appreciate the lack of endless ads and I truly get something out of each episode. Thank you, Fenzi!
Love Love Love ❤️
Awesome and informative and I love hearing about the upcoming classes!
Learning a ton about positive, healthy relationships with my dogs ... and humans too
Outstanding podcast - thanks! I have referred this podcast & the dog training academy to friends.
