November 17, 2021

This week, Jess and Scott discuss dog periods… EEEK! But legitimately, where do they stand on this topic? Let’s look at this from the male and female dog’s perspective and come up with a final verdict together (even though agreeing is so 1900’s). 

Should females in heat be allowed to compete?

How do different sports impact this topic differently?

Why can’t you just spay your dog?

Using Food in Training

Using Food in Training

November 3, 2021
This week, Jess and Scott discuss the value and drawbacks of using food in dog training. Some trainers claim you can never train a dog without using food as reinforcement while other trainers would argue you should never use food. Where do Scott and Jess fall in their thinking?
 
Why is food sometimes a hinderance?
 
What is the best way to gauge your dog’s success when it comes to using food?
 
How can you build food drive in a dog that is unimpressed at best by treats?

Bulldogge Follow Up Episode

Bulldogge Follow Up Episode

October 27, 2021

This week, Jess and Scott invite Raiden the Olde English Bulldogge on for a follow up episode. As a little puppy, we had Raiden as a guest on the podcast. He was able to fit in Jess's arms. Now as a 1 1/2 year old dog we invite him back, but he no longer fits on Jess’s lap this time! 

 

What challenges has this dog dealt with as an Olde English Bulldogge during his first year?

How is his training after Doggy Boot Camp as a puppy? 

Should the owner neuter or not?

 

To see Raiden on his first podcast with Scott and Jess, click: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VaPixJIynnI&t=26s

Aggression vs. Reactivity

Aggression vs. Reactivity

October 20, 2021

Aggression vs. Reactivity 

This week, Jess and Scott discuss the difference between aggression and reactivity. The two terms seem to commonly get tossed around as synonyms, but Scott and Jess don’t believe this to be the case after years in the field. Listen in for broader understanding of both topics.

What do Scott and Jess define both aggression and reactivity to be?

When should you consider your dog to be aggressive? 

Should euthanasia be a consideration in either situation?

The Evolution of Remote Collars

October 13, 2021

This week, Jess and Scott are joined by Robin MacFarlance from That’s My Dog. Robin has been training dogs for almost 30 years and is considered an expert when it comes to remote collar training. Scott and Jess first met when they both presented at a conference Robin held over a decade ago.  

How has the technology of ecollars changed over the years?

What is a way we can bridge the gap in dog training through respecting other methodologies more openly?

Why are invisible fences less advisable than a remote collar?

This week, Jess and Scott are joined by Shelly Legault from Cappa’s Kennel. Shelly has been an employee there for almost a decade. It is the only local facility we recommend, and Shelly joins us today to discuss many of the policies that contribute to their overall success.

“Fully Trained” Puppies

“Fully Trained” Puppies

September 22, 2021

This week, Jess and Scott discuss a fairly new and pretty hot topic, which is buying a puppy that is already “fully trained.” This trend has been increasing throughout the past decade, and many families are spending 10K plus on a 4–6-month-old puppy!

What are the pros and cons of going this direction when adding a new dog?

How much can one reasonably expect out of a 4–6-month-old puppy? 

Why might training not transfer as well in some of these programs?
