Leerburg's Dog Training Podcast was started in 2006, long before podcasts became trendy like they are today. Our podcast is a place to share valuable information and have conversations that are important to the dog training community. With podcasts becoming more popular in recent years the team here at Leerburg has elected to release new episodes of some of our favorite content from our trainers like Ed Frawley, Michael Ellis, and Kevin Sheldahl. Learn the evolution and basics of dog training from some of the most experienced trainers in the United States.

Good advice but condescending
I love Leerburg and have been using their products and videos for many years. While Ed gives excellent advice, he often laughs and scoffs at people’s ignorance and I don’t believe it’s a very professional way to deliver his important messages. I agree with him that people are doing things wrong with their dogs, which is why they have problems and are writing in, but a lot of best practices in dog training are actually not that intuitive, and I would like to see Ed take a more compassionate approach to people who are actively seeking his and Cindy’s help. I will keep listening but it’s sometimes distressing to hear his condescending tone.
PERFECT FOR MY STRONG WILLED PUP
Practical information that has been extremely helpful in training my high energy, high drive puppy. I probably would have given up on my dog if not for Leerburg.
If regular group obedience is not working out for you, listen to the basic training podcasts on Leerburg ,follow their advice exactly, and watch the understanding between you and your dog develop.
Leerburg never disappoints! These podcasts are a great way to take their wealth of knowledge with you on the go. Like all of Leerburg's instructional material, these podcasts warrant multiple listens in order to get the most out of them.
Thank you Leerburg!
