Yes!

Very helpful podcast. The online program requiring paid membership (more depth, slower going) is very helpful too. Both are repetitive, and in combination even more so, but I have found this to be good in this instance.

I started with the most recent of the 170 podcast episodes, and after 10 or so switched to the beginning episodes so they play one after another automatically. Of the first 30 episodes, only two were not helpful, and only because there are no children or other pets in my home. The other 28 episodes were helpful even though I have also attended two full courses of the online program. So as the host Amy would say, “Yes!”

Lifesaver!

The podcast and the program subscription have been lifesavers so far during the very overwhelming time of bringing home a new puppy. Just do what she says, it works! ❤️
