Window Theory With Jay Jack
Jay's concept of "windows" is a great way to look at things, especially when you have a dog who keeps doing the wrong things at the wrong moment! Give it a listen ... If you know Jay, you might notice this is a pretty plain vanilla outting for him! There's an uncensored version coming to the Patreon page soon! Patreon.com/Barkabout

Episode 33: Proving the Dog Right, Leash Tips Part 2
In this episode, Chad talks about the value of proving the dog right, and adds more to leash discussion from episode 31.
This podcast really goes deep into the topics discussed and the host is humble and genuinely wants progress in training. Super thorough and thought provoking.
Empathetic and humble dog trainer- no ego
Mackin is a rare breed of human, providing insightful commentary on his process and introducing other trainers who he respects, even if they don't 100% agree on each other's methods- they all believe in continued learning and the benefits of staying open minded and listening. No cookie cutter methods here!
My only complaint...
Is that there aren’t more! I click on them immediately when they come out and play them straight through! I enjoy listening to Chad talk dogs as he’s a wealth of knowledge and has a way with words that makes more advanced concepts easier to understand.
