Amy makes it so fun and easy to listen to and has so many awesome tips, tricks, and great advice! I can’t wait to keep listening each week as I raise my puppy! Thank you thank you thank you!

Self confidence

Just thank you, this is solid advice for people who are trying to train dogs. I am not a professional trainer but I have trained dogs and worked at a rescue. But it’s been a while. And I am getting a new puppy, I though I would listen to this a brush up my skills and give myself some self confidence about it. And it’s great to remember so much, I had forgotten and you have many great games to make it more fun.

Must listen for any new or soon to be puppy owner

I love this podcast! Full of useful information and Amy does a great job of explaining things in a way that is easy to understand and replicate. It really took a lot of the stress out of getting a new puppy for the first time.
