Integrated Dog Training Featuring Michael Wombacher
Michael Wombacher has just realeased an incredibly illustrated book that's just been released; I sat down to discuss it with him!
Making a photo rich book that used the images as so much of the story was something he really wanted to do. We talk about the intense challenges that come with it, and go in depth about what "integrated dog training" means, and how it covers obedience training (not necessarily puppies).
It's an incredible interview and body of work. It's absolutely worth checking out both!

Interview with Dog Trainer Michael Wombacher
Mike has trained dogs for over 25 years, including dogs of celebrities, and is an author and lecturer. We discuss how he got started in the dog training business and what methods of training inspired him to explore more in the business.
We talk about some key factors for people who are trying to find a good trainer. What to ask, what to look for, etc., and how social media has changed how trainers approach critical training scenarios. We talk about recent belief in "purely positive" methods.
Very solid, helpful advice!
I have a 7 mo. old pup. My daughter is getting ready to bring home a pup of her own. She introduced me to this podcas, having found it in preparation for her new addition. I'm beginning to work my way through it. I love that it's so easy to listen to. Very helpful, solid, common sense advice. Good foundational information with a nice balance of listener questions and answers. Having the app, rather than needing to sort through to find a particular episode is also really helpful. The whole package is very well put together. THANK YOU!
Very helpful information and I have used his training tips with our new rescue Irish Wolfhounds and he is doing great walking on a loose leash and several other things. I could barely walk him without him pulling me when we adopted him as a one-year-old weighing 115 pounds
Best podcast ever!!! especially if you are preparing to get a dog or have one that you want to train! The best! There is no other podcast like this one!
