Educational, relatable and enjoyable!
I really enjoyed listening to the podcast with Dr McConnell. Hearing these two professionals discuss emotions and how they're experienced, applied to life and viewed in the dog and human world was great. As a dog professional, these types of podcasts are easy to listen to and still providing some fun educational material.
We have more in common with our dogs than we think! Love this fun perspective on personal development.
