Ep39 - How to Recharge Your Batteries (The Importance of Self Care)

Ep39 - How to Recharge Your Batteries (The Importance of Self Care)

July 12, 2020

Stress and burnout is rampant within the canine industry. Perhaps it's a combination of a highly emotionally charged topic (trainers are rightly very passionate about their clients and animals), along with the fact that most dog trainers are "lone wolf" operators - out on their own, without "colleagues" in the usual sense.

The irony here is many people enter the dog industry from a love of nature and animals, and yet they end up spending a lot of time away from nature, in the digital world, trying to run a modern business. 

Panos recorded this episode from the beautiful Turon Gates property in rural NSW and muses on the importance of recharging batteries in nature, and how you might go about this.

Ep35 - Interviewing Pat Stuart of The Canine Paradigm Podcast

Ep35 - Interviewing Pat Stuart of The Canine Paradigm Podcast

June 14, 2020

This week we were privileged to sit down with Pat Stuart of The Canine Paradigm, which means we've now interviewed both of The Canine Paradigm lads! Pat is our first in-studio guest on Life With Your Dog.

Pat's introduction to dog training was a baptism by fire when he brought an adult Belgian Malinois into his home that required way more skill to own and train than he had ever expected, and so began his obsession with dog training and behaviour.

In 2015, Pat took the plunge and began training dogs full time after a more than 12-year career in Army Special Forces. 

He has been lucky enough to be mentored and coached by some of Australia and the world’s best dog trainers. Most notably Michael and Bart Bellon who Pat has been studying under for several years, learning their NePoPo® system. 

Pat is a certified NePoPo® instructor as well as an active competitor in PSA, a certified decoy and the PSA Assistant Regional Director for Australia. 

Pat believes his greatest strength comes in educating people, and he has a passion for passing on knowledge in a way people can go out and implement immediately.

Ep31 [Puppies 101] Walking Your Pup, & Acquiring Sibling Puppies [Pros & Cons]

Ep31 [Puppies 101] Walking Your Pup, & Acquiring Sibling Puppies [Pros & Cons]

May 17, 2020

Today's episode covers 2 topics. Walking your puppy can be a challenge, and learning some basics can really help. Panos doesn't teach 'loose lead' walking for puppies under 6 months old, but building a foundation to help for those future times really makes a difference!

If you are thinking of it, or already own 2 puppies from the same litter, Panos & Luke discuss the importance of following guidelines to prevent future issues. The 2 main issues here (but not limited to these) are separation anxiety and aggression problems. Enjoy this Puppy 101 episode - any questions hit us up on our different platforms.

Ep30 - Dog Barking At TV - How Do I Stop This? [Q&A]

Ep30 - Dog Barking At TV - How Do I Stop This? [Q&A]

May 10, 2020

Dogs barking at the TV can be a fairly common problem. Interestingly, it is more prevalent with modern TVs as the old-style TVs (before LCDs) were very hard for dogs to actually see the TV picture.

Panos goes through how to use COUNTER-CONDITIONING and DESENSITISATION to address this issue. As always, successful dog training comes down to GOOD MANAGEMENT! Set yourself and your dog up for success, not problems.
