    Laura Monaco Torelli KPA-CTP, CPDT-KA

    This is a very special episode for this podcast as Laura Monaco Torelli joins me to share her personal and poignant experience from a traumatic dog attack that occurred two years ago.
     I want to thank Laura for trusting me as a friend and colleague to have a safe space to talk about the terrifying events from that day.

    I also want to give a trigger warning for this episode as we discuss a dog attack that resulted in injuries to both Laura and her beloved dog Vito. We don’t often discuss the impact on victims of dog bites, so our hope is that this show will provide some solace that you are not alone.  If you have experienced trauma from a dog bite incident, there is help available, and there is a link below for emotional and crisis support.

    Muzzles can be a dog’s best friend, and in this episode, we focus on all things muzzle related.

    Sarah McManaman, my trusty sidekick and social media manager for The MuzzleUp! Project is my very special guest, and we have a fun troubleshooting session based on questions from MuzzleUp fans.

    We discuss solutions on things like what to do if you’re not sure if the muzzle is the right fit, or your dog resource guards the muzzle, or your dog simply hates muzzles, and many other helpful tips to comfortably and safely acclimate dogs to muzzles.

    You are not going to want to miss any part of this episode. Kim Brophey is back by popular demand! Last season, Kim broke the dog training internet with her unique, and enlightening view of dog behavior through her LEGS model - Learning, Environment, Genetics, and Self, and she has been in demand ever since, having countless requests for interviews and podcast appearances. 
    We continue where we left off last season, and chat about the ethics of dog ownership and why that has gone so sideways with some breeds, and have an exploratory conversation about the impact human culture has had on dogs, including aggressive behavior.

    Nando Brown and Jo-Rosie Haffenden are my wonderful and often hilarious guests on this episode, and we unpack some interesting and sometimes controversial constructs when talking about aggression, including things like drive, arousal, and predatory behavior. We also discuss the need to understand breed specific behaviors and the genetics involved, with a focus on bully breeds.

    Melanie Cerone, Ph.D.

    Dr. Melanie Cerrone is my very special guest for this episode and we get to chat about the human side of behavior consulting, as well as some of the common issues we might encounter in our work, because after all, we are working mostly with people when it comes to aggression cases.  
    We discuss the “helping alliance,” which is a powerful tool to build trusting relationships with our clients and why it is so crucial for successful outcomes.
    Melanie and I also chat about lack of client participation which is another hot topic for trainers, and why there are often valid reasons why this might be happening in aggression cases, and we unpack those in this episode.
