    Episode 197: The relationship between the decoy and handler

    Episode 197: The relationship between the decoy and handler

    The relationship between the decoy and handler is one that needs to be based in honesty, integrity, vulnerability and compassion. There is so much information both said and unsaid that is bouncing between 3 entities, the decoy, the handler and the dog.







    Then you have the audience who are watching and taking notes along the way. So what is it that makes this type of dog training such a high level of involvement?







    A decoy really relies on the attention to detail and instruction from a handler. In return, the handler has to trust and be ready to act on said instructions to ensure that the dog has a good experience and is learning the most accurate and relatable behaviour.







    This relationship is intense and rapidly changing and evolving which is why there are so many variables all colliding. It sounds difficult, but it doesn't need to be when everyone plays their part well

    Episode 196: A trainer without a dog

    Episode 196: A trainer without a dog

    A trainer without a dog is often a difficult position for some trainers. They may have lost the dog due to some unforeseen circumstance or may not have one at all.







    This conversation was the result of a trainer putting something up in our Facebook page, which in turn, got us thinking about the complexities.







    If you have the opportunity to listen to this episode, we would love to know your thoughts in the Canine Paradigm discussion group. Has it hindered you if you have been a trainer and you didn't have a dog or has it been business as usual?

    Episode 195: A world without tools

    Episode 195: A world without tools

    A world without tools is an objective to several groups and individuals in the dog training communities. Clearly we're talking about the training tools that some trainers choose to use during the training process.







    These are tools recognised as electric or remote training collars, prong collars, correction or choke chains, martinagles, slip leads etc.







    To certain groups of dog trainers, many of these are the essentials, where some or all of them are selected over the training process and used in ethical educational outcomes.







    To others, they are a tormenting and diabolical to be considered at all.







    In Australia we sometimes refer to a 'tool' as an imbecile. So we have a training industry saying that suggests, "It's not the training tool that causes the problems. It's the tool on the end of the lead that does that".

    Episode 194: Hobby, jobby, job

    Episode 194: Hobby, jobby, job

    Hobby, Jobby, job is an expression that came from the wise oracle Bart Bellon. It's his way of describing the transition between a hobby and a job, obviously with the jobby in-between.







    Much like the phases of training that we some time refer to, this is a natural progression of many dog trainers.







    They start off with the hobby and they find its been calling to them like the song of a siren. they get more involved, now it's taking the shape of a jobby.







    For many who are asking how to get into the industry, this is a good flight plan. it allows you to develop the skills you need and gives you perspective of what you're enrolling in.







    Good luck out there all the newer people coming into this wonderful industry.

    Episode 192: Healthy every day

    Episode 192: Healthy every day

    Healthy every day is the story of a start up pet food company in Sydney Australia. The ethos of the business was to try and create a kibble that can be as low in carbohydrates as possible.







    There are literally hundreds of different brands all volleying for space on the shelves. However the question needs to be asked. Are they honestly healthy?







    This question has gone unanswered for a long time in pet foods because healthy was not as important as was profits.







    Now its good to see that people with dogs are asking better questions and expecting more.
