Great, usable (and much needed!) advice
Fantastic addition to the Quick and Dirty Tips lineup, this podcast is destined to go solid gold. I know our dog could use a little brush up on his manners and now I have the tools to do it right. Keep them coming!!
Great info, well written--Highly recommended.
The world/web/everyone's iPod needs more dog behavior info such as is provided in this podcast; the author definitely is well versed in behavior theory. As a vet tech I wish there were more sources of information as spot-on and well-communicated as this one. She's articulate, too, giving clear explanation in a minimum of time. Looking forward to listening to more.
More! More!! More!!! These segments are perfectly condensed for my three children as we celebrate one week of life with our new (now 10 week old retriever).
