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.
Petra Ford - Getting Started on Competition Heelwork
Petra and I talk about what it takes to get really pretty heelwork — namely, position, a good focal point, and strong engagement skills.
Irith Bloom - What is Arousal?
In this episode Irith and I dive deep into what arousal is, what it means, and what we can do about it. Irith breaks down both the science and the practical, applicable skills we can apply.
Julie Symons - Lost Item Recovery
Come learn all about this new nosework game! Julie and I chat about what's involved, how to get started, and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the new sport!

Megan Foster, Julie Daniels, Amy Cook, and Erin Lynes on Adolescent Dogs
In prepping for the Adolescent Dogs One Day Conference, we brought on a number of the presenters and panelists to chat about what changes we see during adolescence and how we can best handle them.
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.
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.
