The Good Dog’s Q and A Saturday! Episode #27 (Answers for 4/11/15)
Hey gang, we had a little tech hold up, so we’re a day late with posting, but I assure you we packed so much value and fun into this episode that you’ll forgive and forget the tardiness the moment you dive into this week’s Q and A goodness!
In this episode we talk about a dog who retreats to the owner when corrected; addressing a dog who is fixated on the cat in the house; determining whether correcting and addressing your dog around other dogs is creating a dog-nervous dog; an owner with a nervous golden doodle asks whether a purely positive or balanced approach would be best for her specific dog’s issues; how to strike the balance between correcting and advocating for a dog that gets uncomfortable/reactive to other dogs in the house when they get close; what to do with a dog who snaps whenever a prong or e-collar is presented; how to sort out a dog who is going bananas when being let out of a crate; should you leave a dog in Place when you leave the house; dealing with a dog who breaks place and won’t return to the mat on his own; finding the right level on the e-collar for a reactive rottie; how to sort out Cujo-like behavior in the car; and most importantly we receive a giant, awesome, goodie-filled care package from one of our awesome Q and A watchers!
