    The Best Way to Play with Adolesent Dogs
    GET EXCITED & CALM DOWN
    The Red Light/ Green Light game
    This is a great game to teach our pups to play softly (without mouthing) and also to help them control their excitement better. In a nutshell, the game is about getting our pups mildly excited and then ask for a calm behavior ( sit, touch, look, or down) before resuming play again. This helps prevent play from escalating into frenzied/frantic biting and helps your pup learn that calm behaviors get more attention.

    In this episode Susanne is talking with Amber Quann, owner and head trainer at Summit Dog Training about teaching our dogs manners and skills for life outside our homes, especially urban environments. Amber tells us about her current dog Jamison the Papillon and how she raised him to be a jet setting world traveler, how she built those skills incrementally as he grew up, and what she continues to teach him even as a mature adult dog. Amber is the owner and head trainer at Summit Dog Training (http://www.summitdogtraining.com). Amber has been training dogs since age 10.

Her current adventure partner is Jameson, a Papillon; together, they enjoy hiking, backpacking, walks in the park, hanging out at breweries, and nose work!

    Amber is fascinated by the bond that grows between dogs and their owners as they adventure together, and promoting this special connection is a significant part of Summit Dog Training's mission. Amber is a graduate and Certified Training Partner with the Karen Pryor Academy and a Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Knowledge & Skills Assessed through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT).

    Bad Blood Between Dogs with Katie Sipple of Wise Mind Canine Part 2

    Bad Blood Between Dogs with Katie Sipple of Wise Mind Canine Part 2

    In Part 2 Katie tells us more about her free resources for breeders and new puppy owners to help dogs hit it off (in a good way) and dog fight triage when you don't. We also discuss the importance of patience and management when helping your puppy and your resident dog form a strong bond and how to flex the control you have over your dog's relationships to everyone's benefit. If you have more than one dog are a professional who works with multi dog owners, or plan to in the future, these two episodes are for you!

    About Katie Sipple IAABC-ADT
    Katie Sipple is an Accredited Dog Trainer through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, a graduate of the Aggression in Dogs Master Course and holds a B.Sc. in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. She owns Wise Mind Canine, where her focus is helping multi dog households live harmoniously. Most of her clients are dealing with complex aggression cases involving 2 or more dogs in their home. If she could make one wish, it would be to teach more people how to properly introduce dogs and manage multi dog households BEFORE aggression strikes. Until then, she deeply enjoys untangling difficult behavioral puzzles with multiple dogs so that her clients and their dogs can thrive again. Katie lives with her 2 German Shepherds (Phoenix and Fisher) and her Border Collie/Chinese Shar Pei mix (Zeke) in the west suburbs of Chicago. Together they enjoy training, getting out in nature, and many a lazy weekend spent in each other’s company. When she’s not training dogs Katie is a passionate advocate for disability and mental health awareness, as she lives her life with disabling PTSD, Multiple Sclerosis, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, and more. Wise Mind Canine allows her to do what she loves alongside disabling medical challenges and she hopes that openness will encourage others to realize their own potential and follow their dreams.

    Bad Blood Between Dogs with Katie Sipple of Wise Mind Canine

    This episode we are talking with the Dog Relationships expert from Wise Mind Canine, Katie Sipple about just how much influence we actually have over the relationships between our dogs, how we can exert that influence, prevent problems, build resilient relationships, and enjoy less stress in our multi dog households. We are focusing in part 1 on early puppyhood, breeders, and preparing new owners for adding that puppy to a household with dogs.

    It's Time To Rethink Puppy Biting

    It's Time To Rethink Puppy Biting

    Join Susanne as she brings her experience as a breeder to her career as a trainer to discuss why it's time to rethink puppy biting. Replacing tired advice with multi faceted but practical techniques laid out in detail in her new on demand course Shark School Susanne wants to change the way we all look at, and address, this predictable puppy phase.  

    By embracing, instead of fighting, the normal developmental stages of puppyhood and the instincts of young dogs we can give puppies and their owners a strong bond, allowing them to enjoy each other's company, all while giving owners pragmatic tools for living with their baby shark.
