We have been listening to Good Dog Workshop (GDW) podcast episodes for two weeks now, and have learned more practical ways to be better dog owners than we’ve amassed over two years of Google searches and YouTube binges. We don’t feel like we’re wasting our time with GDW, wading through filler and fluff to get to the helpful stuff. The hosts are extremely likable, but get to the point and don’t overdo the banter. If we had the time and money, we would gladly pay Brian and Marina to let us hang out with them 24/7 for a few days, just to soak up their vast knowledge and absorb their confident approach to dogdom. As far as the podcast, GDW seems to be hitting its stride with production value; early episodes have poor sound quality, ramble a bit, and sometimes miss the mark. More recent episodes reflect a shift in structure with clear audio, clean openers and closers, and a more pleasing pace.
Awesome people and advice
Today I had a phone consult with Brian. I live in California, he gave me great advice and helped me better understand what’s best for my pups.
I know it won’t be easy to get to where I need them to be but I know I can always call Brian and he will be there to help even if he’s across the country.
I do enjoy their podcast as well, I’ve been listening for a few days now and I’m hooked.
All the dog knowledge
These podcasts are awesome because they explain why certain things work with dogs and why certain things don’t. I look forward to more podcasts. Brian is also happy to help you through text or calls. He came to my house to help with our dogs and has been extremely available and helpful post-appointment. I would highly recommend him to anyone having dog issues, he will put confidence back in you and your relationship with your dog.
