Ines0717 ,

Love it!

I have learned so much from this podcast and it’s also really fun to listen to!

ThePerfectPetal ,

Very Informative and Helpful

This podcast has so much knowledge and information all based on positive reinforcement and understanding your dog. I discovered Pawesome University through them being guest speakers on “Pregnancy Podcast” and they’re methods and information were exactly in line with my dog training based on positive reinforcement and a respectful and loving relationship. They have great information through their podcast episodes and their YouTube channel. After listening to them continuously, we have started working with Jaime to help our rescue pup overcome her stranger aggression and help her with a baby coming. Between the behavioral consulting and training guidance with Jaime and all the knowledge and information their podcast and YouTube channel give we are already seeing major improvements with our girl 🐶 and her fears and aggressions! Highly recommend them!

Jenny Met ,

Super helpful

I have an 11 week old puppy and have been listening to this podcast since before we brought her home. I have learned so much and I have felt prepared for many different situations. Thank you!
