Just started

I have had this podcast downloaded and ready to listen to for months - but time being what it is and all the mind bending news in the past couple years taking up my podcast time, I just haven’t gotten to this one. So today I felt like listening to something a little different and I finally got to “Working Dogs”. I listened to the episodes about stress in dogs and therapy dogs. Both were very interesting. I love Marcie’s voice which is always important.
Anyway, if you like or love dogs, give this a try.

Thanks

Hi Marcie,
I am a client of Paws With a Cause as well. My first dog will retire sometime within the next year, and I’ll move on to a successor dog. Bittersweet, for sure. Thank you for sharing the life of a service dog handler, and your dogs with a wider audience

Patreon??

I loathe commercials and this has the most egregious type. I'm accustomed to pods sponsored by low key products and services for which you enter the pod's code when you buy or ... here's what some do… they have a Patreon so we can get our own version without advertising. I'd almost forgotten why I'd started giving on Patreon on TheThinkingAtheist and possibly Ostium since I appreciate the podcasts, like the bonus shows in the case of TheThinkingAtheist (and other ones that do it) and in general like trading a small amount of money for the benefit I get from them. I chose to support many for a small amount rather than a few for larger amounts in order to demonstrate to the hosts how much I value their work.

It’s too hard for me to listen past commercials to get to the information on this pod so I find myself skipping shows, dropping episodes back to the bottom of my queue, etc. Dogs are critically important to human culture and development, possibly their evolution; Temple Grandin has referred to evidence of the human brain becoming domesticated at the time we began our association with canids so I want to hear as much information on dogs and dog-human interaction as I can. Service and therapy dog needs are a policy area we all need to consider, and not in way of saying “strict adherence to the ADA guidelines is the only way forward in effecting our approach to dogs in public places”. My community is more welcoming to dogs than most so I’m able to see their power in groups, especially primitive Northern breeds. Last night I watched a GSD X husky-type engage with people in a laundromat; the people then engaged with each other, likely facilitated by the dog and with the same finesse of my GSD X Alaskan Malamute service dog.* (She died 7 weeks ago- talk to your vet about hemangiosarcoma when your dog reaches middle age even if she’s in perfect health like mine when diagnosed)

I have a degree in animal behavior and hope people take the time to think about things from their dog’s perspective- although I know they don’t always do that. There’s a growing number of relevant podcasts and I’d like to take advantage of the ones with good information so please find a way to get less obnoxious advertising.
