Helpful, Great, Easy Listen
This is my new favorite pod! I’d listen every day if I could. Jen provides such helpful info without drowning you in too much. I’ve been sharing my newly learned dog behavior/training tidbits with everyone! Haha
An excellent resource
Along with her blog and book, Dr. Jen’s podcast provides balanced and straightforward explanations of how to approach behavioral needs and issues in dogs. I’m so happy I found her. We’ve had so many celebrity/TV dog trainers controlling and misleading the public conversation on dog behavior. It’s about time we have experts with the scientific knowledge take greater control of it.
Great, practical information. Dr. Jen is so knowledgeable on the subjects. She does an excellent job explaining and offering ideas and suggestions. My new favorite and I look forward to upcoming episodes!!
