Ep78 - Shelter Dogs: Unseen Variables in Their Training

Ep78 - Shelter Dogs: Unseen Variables in Their Training

April 4, 2021
  • This week Panos and Luke answer and discuss questions from Saharai, who works at Napa County Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre, in California, USA.

 

  • The shelter receives all dogs of any calibre. There are many variables making that job difficult on many levels. Not only for caring, feeding and exercising them, but adopting a behavioural training system to help the dogs that need it the most unfortunately can be the most difficult yet critical for some dogs' adoptability.

 

  • Saharai sent in many questions. These regard how dog behaviour and training practices in such a stressful, high-demand and low-funded environments like shelters can be achievable and replicable.

 

  • Panos has had some experience in working day-to-day duties in an animal shelter for multiple years along with training volunteers, staff and the dogs of the shelter, which helped him to answer Saharai's questions.
 
  • Saharai shares some great content on Instagram of the cool things she does at the shelter. These include training, rehabilitation, enrichment, and showing her raw passion. Check her out on Insta at www.instagram.com/_wolfmother_

Ep75 - Aggression Cases [Q&A]

Ep75 - Aggression Cases [Q&A]

March 14, 2021

Today's Q&A comes in from another listener, Sarvesh -  all the way from India.

He has a few questions about aggression cases in some dogs he's working with that likes to get another perspective on.

Remember it is difficult to give specific advice about aggression without seeing the dog and their owners in person.

Panos gives advice general in nature and not too specific as he understands it can be a dangerous thing to be absolute about giving guidance as it can result in a dangerous outcome.

Make sure you listen right to the end as Panos adds an extra thought that is most important for all new trainers to hear.

Thanks for listening!

Ep71 - Impulse Control

Ep71 - Impulse Control

February 14, 2021

What is impulse control?

Today's short episode is a brief explanation, example and guide on how to develop impulse control in our dogs.

Panos believes impulse control is a life skill for both dogs and humans and must be developed and maintained to get the most out of our dogs especially while they interact with the world around them.

It compliments obedience training and behavioural issues and is one of those foundational techniques that should be a part of your dog training toolbox.
