    Episode #37 Mike Lilley "Holding the dog accountable in tracking"

    Caught up with Mike Lilley for an interview. Unfortunately, Rich was having some technical difficulties and could not join us. We will be rectifying this by the next episode. I believe you will find Mike's methods to be innovative and sound. The proof is always in the pudding. His name is more and more becoming synonymous with solid tracking. He's just one of the more humble, pleasant, talented men in the business. Hope you enjoy this one as much as we did. There's a lot of information to unp...

    Episode #36 Hans Verbruggen Part 2. "Dogs don't make mistakes on purpose."

    Once again we got an opportunity to have a conversation with Hans about dog training. The first episode was very popular with our listeners. Many folks felt we just scratched the surface on a few key topics. So, in part two, we were able to dig a bit deeper. We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did.

    Episode #34 Hans Verbruggen "When building the foundation fast is slower"

    We anticipate that you will enjoy this conversation as much as we did. There are already plans for a second episode. Hans uses many phrases that simply just resonated with us. Please listen intently as he has many important things to say and is wise beyond his years. Hans VerbruggenProfessional Dog trainerI 've been living amongst dogs since my childhood.

    Episode #33 Jeff Meyer on the other side of the table.

    We got the opportunity to get Jeff on the other side of the table. You will find that he is a humble solid source of k9 information. He certainly helped play a role in unifying trainers in this industry. Those of us who have been around awhile remember a time when there wasn't much collaboration. The original Police K9 Magazine most definitely played a role in bringing trainers together. I think we can all agree that we are better unified than divided. We hope you enjoy this episode as much a...
