Raising a puppy is something we have to learn. It's not natural for us humans.  So just like with learning anything new we are going to make a few mistakes along the way. First we have to know what mistakes we are making in the first place.  In this episode, I talk about 4 mistakes I see new puppy owners make (and what to do instead).   .p16c9ff336eb{opacity:0.15;}.p16c9ff336f0{opacity:0.2;}.p16c9ff55484{opacity:0.15;}.p16c9ff55488{opacity:0.2;} Press play to listen to this podcast episode or subscribe to Your New Puppy where ever you listen to your podcasts. Let's take a quick look at each one. #1. Give too much freedom too soonWhen we first imagined having a dog we thought about a dog wandering around the house, sleeping on the couch or freely playing the back yard.  Then when we bring our puppy home we end up giving them too much freedom too soon. What I mean is within the first couple weeks home you give the puppy the run of the first floor of the house or let them run around in the back yard (yes, even if you have a fenced-in yard).This is too much freedom for a new puppy!  You will have that dog that freely runs around your home but right now you have a puppy and there is some work to get there.  What to do instead:Right now they are learning EVERYTHING about your world and how to live in your house.  Think of their freedom as something they earn by building trust and a bond with you, not something they automatically get when they move into your home.Until they earn that freedom, keep your puppy's world small, and closely supervised. The more freedom we give our puppy the more trouble they get into.#2. Underestimating the importance of socializationSocialization is THE most important training you can do for your puppy.  So many new puppy owners aren’t aware of just how important it is or they simply misunderstand it.  When I say socialization most think about letting their puppy play with other dogs. This is true, but interacting with other dogs is only a small part of socializing your puppy.Socializing teaches your puppy to interact properly with EVERYTHING in their environment. It goes from sounds, textures, smells, climbing stairs, being handled, as well as interacting with people and other dogs.  The other part that is greatly misunderstood is that you can’t put off socialization. Socializing has the greatest impact between the age of 3-16 weeks. This isn’t something we can change.  It’s how a puppy’s brain grows and matures.  This also happens to be the time so many dog owners are keeping their dogs inside and avoiding interaction with the outside world.  Usually at the advice of their own vet or breeder because of vaccinations.  I talk all about balancing socialization and vaccinations in Episode 21.An under-socialized dog has trouble adjusting to new people and places.  A well-socialized dog is a confident dog that can go anywhere with you. You can't over-socialize a dog but you can very easily under-socialize a dog.The Socialization lesson inside YOUR Perfect Puppy (my 4 week puppy course) is by far the biggest lesson because it's SO important. What to do instead:If you have a puppy at home get your puppy out there experiencing new people and places AT LEAST 3 times a week (every day if possible).  If you have one coming soon, be ready to hit the ground running. #3. Ignoring behaviors hoping that they grow out of themThe dangerous part about this one is that there is some truth to it. As your dog matures they will be less likely to cause trouble.  Their energy decreases, their need to chew, explore, and rebel also decrease.  BUT when they are puppies they are discovering everything and learnin...
When your dog jumps on you, your family and your friends it can quickly turn into an annoying habit.Luckily there are a few things we can do to prevent or correct this behavior.Most of the time our dog jumps on us it is to get our attention. And if we are honest most of the time, that is exactly what we give them. Remember attention is attention, good or bad. So even if you are telling your dog no and pushing him off you, to your dog, that’s attention.Why does your dog jump?It usually starts when they are puppies because they are so darn cute and it seems harmless. Who can resist those big eyes, right?? Only, when our dogs grow up it may not be as cute and they don’t know the difference. If our pup has always jumped up on us for attention and if it works for them that is what they will always do, muddy paws or not.In this episode, I talk about preventing, ignoring and redirecting your dog’s jumping. I use coming home as the main example but these tips can be used in whichever scenario your dog is jumping on you.Links in this episode:Episode 4: How to Get a Strong Recall: Three Things You Can Do Now to Teach Your Dog to Come Every Time You Call.(I also want to mention I am very surprised I have gotten to episode 8 without my back up singers making an appearance.)
Puppy biting is something that just about every new dog owner struggles with. It can go from being an annoyance to affecting your enjoyment and bond with your puppy.  It gets even worse with the kids. Puppies don't know how to play with humans.  It's in their DNA to play with their tough-skinned, fur-covered littermates, but not us wimpy humans with our delicate skin. Working with your puppy on their nipping is pretty straight forward.  When you don't like the way they're playing, you stop playing.  You become completely boring and disengage.  Turn your back, tuck your hands or maybe even walk out of the room. What you don't do is say "no, no, no, stop" and physically try to stop them.  To your puppy, you are still playing. Then, even if you are doing everything right, you may still be struggling. The main reason I see, is that stopping your puppy's biting is a process.  You will be working on and managing puppy biting for a good portion of their first 6 months.Just like potty training, it takes time for our puppy to understand how to play with us.  Remember, we are working against their natural instincts.  So, you're gonna have good days and bad days.  What you need to look for is progress. The other big reason is that sometimes the puppy biting has nothing to do with biting at all.  There is something else going on that you need to address.  An overtired puppy will bite moreAn over-excited puppy will bite moreA teething puppy will bite moreOn those really bad days, instead of "strong-arming" our puppy into stopping, it's probably more about addressing one of the above problems.* Maybe it's time for your puppy to rest in their crate with a toy or chew* Maybe we need to give them a little bit more exercise like a walk or a structured game (like Rover Round Robin which I talk about in Episode 4).* Maybe we need to give them their chew toy to satisfy their aching mouth. In this episode, I talk about what to do when your puppy is biting while playing and why you might still be struggling.Press play to listen and enjoy!!
Potty training is a rite of passage for all puppy owners. It’s not the pretty part of owning a new puppy but it’s the one training none of us can ignore.Sometimes we forget that our dogs don’t come pre-programmed to go to the bathroom outside. This is a habit we have to teach them.The concept of potty training and what you need to do isn't hard.  The time, the effort, and the emotional roller coaster, that’s what’s hard. And even if you do EVERYTHING right there's still going to be accidents and speed bumps along the way.  There are going to be times where you are going to wonder if you're ever going to get your life back.  When are you going to be able to sit on your couch and snuggle with your puppy without constantly worrying if he has to go outside?I promise you, that time will come. First, we have to get through the potty training process. There's no skipping it.  Yeah just have to do it.Though we can’t avoid it there are some ways to make it quicker and easier.  Here I have broken down my Complete Process to Potty Training Your Puppy.  By the end you will know exactly what to do when. You can read on or... You can press play below to listen to Episode 10 of Your New Puppy's Podcast here:(A podcast is a radio show or an audio blog where you can listen to me talk instead of reading about it)  I’ve also put together a 2 page cheat sheet for you with all the information and tips summarized. You can print it out and have it handy throughout the process.  It also includes a potty training schedule to help you keep track of everything.  The Potty Training Cheat Sheet and Schedule is free and yours to download and keep. Potty Training Cheat Sheet and ScheduleI’ve created a cheat sheet for you that summarize the steps and tips I talk about in the episode. I’ve also created a one-page Puppy Potty Schedule for you to use to keep track of your dog’s schedule, any accidents that happen and your successes.Keeping track of these things will be extremely helpful if coordinating with multiple people in the household. It is also a great way to find patterns if things aren’t going smoothly. Request it! In the simplest terms, we are teaching our dog, the proper place to go to the bathroom is outside.  Potty training is such a common thing for us; we forget that it's not natural for our dogs.What IS natural for our dogs is to not go in their sleeping area. That's why using a crate during potty training makes the whole process faster and more efficient. When used correctly, the crate will give him a safe and secure place when we can’t supervise which will greatly reduce accidents.I talk more about crate training in Your New Puppy’s Podcast Episode 05.I also do NOT use indoor potty pads at all.  You don’t want your puppy to have any idea that he might be allowed to go to the bathroom inside.I talk about why I don’t use potty pads in Your New Puppy’s Podcast Episode 09.How long it takes will depend on your dog, on you, and your family. Some dogs just pick it up right away, some struggle.  It will depend on how closely you will be able to stick to the process.  It takes time and energy and sometimes we are going to drop the ball.  What I can promise, is if you stick to this process you will see progress within a week.  Let’s go over exactly what to do, when.When should you take your dog out?
This is part 2 of my interview with Jeanne Joy Hartnagle-Taylor. She is a gem of history and information. In this episode we talk about the most crazy animal her dogs have worked. We also jump into a correct conformation of working dogs discussion which is very spicy and interesting! Check out Jeanne Joy's book The Australian Shepherd Judging Compendium Listen to some great stories of old working dogs including a couple of stories of how Aussies saved lives back in the day!  If you are new to the breed, you will get valuable insight into what makes your dog tick. This is the story of where they came from and why they are so special. If you look way back into the pedigree of your dogs, there is a good chance you will find one of Jeanne Joy's dogs there.  For those of us who know the Hartnagle family, it is a great pleasure to hear these stories over and over again and to learn more about these creatures we love. The working Aussie has a rich heritage. This is one interview you won't want to miss. Jeanne Joy talks about where the Aussies came from (hint: It wasn't Australia) and how they came to be such an important part of our history as a country and played an important role in agriculture starting during the second World War.  We discuss what the original Aussie breeders looked for in a dog and how they developed through some of the founding breeders and kennels. Jeanne Joy is a published author of all things Aussie and she talks about one of her books, Stockdog Savvy. Our conversation was so interesting and engaging it went really long- so this is only Part I of this great conversation.

Tibetan Mastiff History, Lore and Modern Living “No one knows where they came from,” said Sabrina Novarra, one of the original Tibetan Mastiff breeders in the U.S. “The myth of the old monks of Tibet say that snow leopards bred with wolves. Now, we know that’s not true. But, we cannot trace the ancestry. They are the oldest large breed in existence.” Novarra acquired her first Tibetan Mastiff in 1987 and worked to help establish the breed with the American Kennel Club, where it was recognized in 2007. Low key breed is long-lived but not easy to train She said this ancient breed is relatively healthy and long-lived, but, while generally low key, they are not particularly biddable. “This is a landrace breed,” Novarra said. “… basically, a breed that has evolved itself as opposed to us evolving it. They are self-thinkers. They are not easily trained. You learn after you’ve had them as long as I have, that you make them think it’s their idea to be trained.” In Tibet the dogs developed as family and flock guardians who were tied during the day and roamed the village at night as protection. They still bark at night if they are outdoors, as that was their job in ancient times. “This is not a dog if you want to do agility and obedience and take 300-mile hikes, this is not the dog for you … they’re very lazy,” Novarra said. She did note that she accomplished an obedience title on one of her older girls. The dogs are very large and powerful and need significant amounts of socializing, according to breeders. “Tibetan mastiffs need to see everything twice,” said Dan Nechemias, owner of the 2018 National Specialty Best of Breed winner. “Just because they saw a red basketball doesn’t mean that they’ll accept a yellow basketball. They were bred for 2000 years to be suspicious of absolutely everything but their family. So, everything that they see in their space — which is their entire visual field — is a threat until they decide it’s otherwise.” Nechemias, who purchased his first Tibetan Mastiff in 2001, adds that, like many of the working and guardian breeds, the Tibetan Mastiff is very discerning about people they meet. “… Tibetan Mastiffs are wary of people that are determined to meet them,” Nechemias said. “So what happens is the person’s just really working hard. They’re staring at the dog — you should never stare down an Asian breed much less a Tibetan Mastiff — they’re in their face. … If you ask a Tibetan Mastiff permission to touch it, it will wonder why you’re asking it permission. They’re an incredibly sensitive breed and then they say well this person’s asking me permission they must not be OK.”
It’s Episode 28 and we’re back in action with arguably the most iconic of pet reptiles: The Bearded Dragon! With several different subspecies and lots of stories of our own foster bearded dragon, this episode is sure to please even the pickiest of listeners. We talk about why we think beardies might be more bird than reptile, and why we agree they are a GREAT first reptile!
In this episode it is my honor to interview Jeanne Joy Hartnagle-Taylor, whose family was one of the founding breeders of the Australian Shepherd. Jeanne Joy is full of interesting information and history! It is so great to hear her talk about these dogs and how they were developed and came to be the breed we know now.
When we think of crate training, we usually think of house training our dog. It is true that these two things go hand and hand.  Using a crate is the best and most efficient way to potty train our dogs.  Crate training can go way beyond potty training.  If done correctly a crate can be an essential training tool and a way to give you peace of mind long after potty training is over.  In this episode I will go over:* Reasons to crate train your dog or puppy and keep him crate trained* Different kinds of crates* How to make your dog LOVE his crate* Tips if your dog isn’t loving his crate right nowBelow are pictures of the different types of crates I talk about during the podcast. Wire CrateMost versatile.Folds down for storage or transport.Comes with a divider to change the size of the crate to grow with the dog.Looks most like a cage.Enclosed CrateAlready enclosed and snug.Airport approved.No way to adjust the size for growing puppies.Can be bulky to travel with. Soft CrateAlready enclosed and snug.Folds down and is light for easy travel.No way to adjust the size for growing puppies.Puppies and heavy chewers can chew holes in the material."End Table" CrateAttractive and can second as an end table.Not easily moved.ExpensiveCozy CrateLucy  has a crate that all the dog's love.  Even guests who are not crate trained love to sleep in her crate.  I very often have to get other dog's out of her crate so Lucy can go to sleep.  It's a very cozy area that the dogs are just attracted too.  It has a blanket over the top a fleece bed on the bottom and a couple of soft blankets thrown in.Leave a comment below or share with your fellow dog lovers!

Your recall command is any word you use to tell your dog to come to you. The most common being “come.” I’ve also heard “front” and “here” used.The recall is arguably one the most important commands for your dog to know but it’s also one that eludes most of us.I am not going to talk about how to teach the actual command, what I am going to talk about is creating a strong foundation so when it is time to train the command it will be easier.We are going to take advantage of the fact that our dogs are ALWAYS paying attention to us. .We are always training our dog whether we realize it or not.I’m going to talk about three specific things you can do (or never do) to have more confidence that your dog will come to you when you need him to.The three things are:* Never call your dog to you for punishment. Coming to you is the best thing in the world...EVERY TIME* Never chase your dog. But let your dog chase you.* Add a collar grab into his training.PLUS, check out the bonus below. It’s instructions on how to play the game, Rover Round Robin. It’s a game that I teach all my clients because it creates a foundation for recall, tires your dog out and involves the whole family. Free Tool: Rover Round RobinThis bonus includes step by step instructions on how to teach your dog and your family and friends to play the game. It also includes options to add challenges and new skills to the game. It’s a bonus that you can come back to again and again to continue to teach your dog and involve your family and friends...it doesn’t get better than that. Request it!
Separation anxiety is when your dog is stressed out because they are separated from you. Every single dog has the potential to develop some form of separation anxiety because dogs don’t know how to be alone naturally.  This is one of the many things we need to teach them to live in our world. Separation anxiety was also one of the many issues I had to deal with when I brought home my two girls all those years ago.  I know how heartbreaking and stressful it can be to deal with severe cases. My goal for you is to prevent it or nip it in the bud. In this episode I talk about:* What separation anxiety is.* What it looks like.* How to prevent it.* How to treat your dog if they are already showing minor signs.  If your dog is showing major signs of separation anxiety (destructive behavior, excessive barking, even hurting themselves) please call a certified trainer in your area.Press play to listen below or go to where ever you get your podcasts. Photo by Patrick Carr on Unsplash

Dog parks seem like a great idea on the surface.  in this podcast I get down to the nitty gritty and tell you why I hate them and how dangerous they can be without you even knowing it.
Deciding what to feed your dog is a monumental decision that so many people struggle with.  In this podcast I address the various choices and offer my guidance.  Remember, I'm not a vet, my advice is based on my research and experience and what I do with my dogs and my client recommendations.

Especially with a new puppy, you'll hear 20 times a day, play with your puppy, exercise your puppy, stimulate your puppy so they don’t get bored, bond with them to create a strong relationship…OK OK, we get it’s important but after 160 games of fetch things get a little...well, boring. In this episode, I’m going to go through 10 ways to play with your dog. And this is just to get you started, it doesn’t stop here, not even close.  In reality, there are hundreds of ways to play with your dog. I want you and your dog to get creative and take it from here.   With the cold weather settling in here in NJ I decided to concentrate on indoor activities.  It’s easy to take things outside and get all the exercise and entertainment you need. It’s when you're stuck inside that things get harder.  No matter what activity we do with them, we are entertaining, stimulating, and bonding with them.  It’s tiring them out that can sometimes seem impossible.    That is why I also focused on ways that will up the exercise and tiring out factor.  At the end of the day (literally) what we want is a tired and happy dog! Your dog will probably have their favorites.  I hope you can find something you love, your dog loves AND gets everyone to sleep! Let’s get those creative juices going!!  Press play to listen and enjoy!!

There is only one thing that you need to know about dog behavior to teach or stop any behavior! Yup, when it comes down to it, our dogs are very simple creatures.  In this episode, I am revealing my secret.  This is what I use to solve 90% of my client's training issues.  I have centered my life around dog behavior.  And everything I have learned and observed comes down to this one thing.  SPOILER ALERT... .p16c9ff336eb{opacity:0.15;}.p16c9ff336f0{opacity:0.2;}.p16c9ff55484{opacity:0.15;}.p16c9ff55488{opacity:0.2;} Press play to listen to this podcast episode or subscribe to Your New Puppy where ever you listen to your podcasts. The one thing you need to know about dog behavior***Dogs do what works for them...always; and they don’t feel guilty about it.*** That's it.  If your dog is exhibiting some behavior then it is working for them.  Otherwise, they wouldn't be doing it.  The trick is to understand what's working.  We can use it to our advantage to teach a behavior.  For example, you want to teach your dog to sit, you give them a treat every time their butt hits the floor when you say "sit". Now, that behavior works for them so they are going to repeat it.  Or we want to stop a behavior.  For example, your dog barks at you and you give them attention by looking at them or even telling them "no." That behavior now works for them and they will repeat it.  To change the behavior we have to take the attention away.    The top 4 most common things your dog is looking for isAttentionFoodRelease extra energy Relieve boredomThese are not the only things but they are the place to start.  The concept is easy, it’s applying that gets tricky.  Sometimes it's super obvious (your dog jumps on the counter and gets to the food) or not so obvious (your puppy is whining in the crate for attention, not to go potty).  This episode is chock full of examples on how to apply this. Now you know my secret.  This is the same place I always start when trying to teach or stop a behavior.  It takes practice, but if we take a hard look at our dog’s behavior (and ours) you will see the pattern.  Press play to listen to the full episode with more details and examples.  Enjoy!

You need to be your dog’s pack leader. This much is clear. However, when I talk about leadership it doesn’t have anything to do with “alpha” or “dominance”.  I believe those words are overused and greatly misunderstood. But mostly, I believe that it leads us to the wrong type of relationship with our dog.  Make no mistake you need to be your dog’s pack leader, but I want you to think about more like a parent or teacher.  You make the rules, you decide how you want your dog to act and then it's up to us to guide and teach them how to be the dog we want them to be.  It’s a balance of respect, patience, and trust.There are three parts to being a good pack leader to your dog that builds this type of relationship. We need to:* Lead by example* Lead with consistency  * Lead with patienceIn this episode, I will talk about each one, what they mean, and how they fit into the bigger picture.

Free Feeding is when your dog's bowl is always filled with food allowing them to choose when to eat. When you have a dog that likes does to graze leaving their food out all the time can be a convenient.  On the surface it seems harmless but what we don't realize is that it can have a negative effect on our dog's behavior and training.  In this episode, I talk about how free feeding can affect your dog’s behavior, health, potty training and more.You will also get some tips on how to change the habit if it has already started.For those of us that c an't imagine our dog leaving ANY food in the bowl there is still some great information on how one habit can effect your dog's other behaviors.   
Very often I get asked: Is human food good for dogs? Or "should I feed my dog people food?" Or they say with pride “I ONLY feed my dog, dog food”The first thing I want to dispel is the idea that there is a difference between "people" food and "dog" food.  Food is food.The distinction that we are actually making is the difference between fresh foods and traditional commercial dog food which is typically highly processed.  So yes, "human" food is good for dogs because just like us, our dogs benefit greatly from fresh foods.I'm not talking about feeding your dog table scraps or dinner left overs.  I'm talking about supplementing their dinner with nutritious fresh foods and snacks.There are a few pitfalls we have to be careful of:* We want to be careful of over feeding our dogs.  When we add fresh foods we are also adding calories. * We also want to make sure that we keep a balanced diet.  If they are filling up on chicken (which is good for them) they might not be eating the other nutrients they need.* There are some foods that we can eat that our dogs shouldn’t.In this episode I talk about:* The difference between people and dog food (or lack there of).* Cautions when feeding your dog human food.* Benefits of feeding your dog human food.* Some of my favorite fresh foods that I use to supplement my dog’s food.  Related Episodes:Your New Puppy Episode #017: 5 Dog Food Myths and the Truth Behind ThemPhoto by Marek Szturc on Unsplash
Raising a puppy is challenging. Raising a puppy in an apartment adds a few additional challenges. It’s becoming more and more common to raise a puppy in an apartment.  This is great because it means more places are allowing dogs but before you run and get your new puppy there are some things to consider and to be ready for. When we think about raising a puppy in an apartment we usually think about the size restriction the apartment building has (which I don’t agree with and I talk about why).  There are also a few other things.When living in an apartment (or a condominium or even a townhouse) you have close neighbors that can make crate training harder.  Sometimes you can’t get outside quickly which can be a struggle during potty training. And most of the time the room you have to exercise your dog is limited.I have you covered with some tips on how to handle these extra challenges.  Including:* Getting the right age and breed* Potty training tips * Crate training tips* When they destroy something that's not yoursPress play to listen to the full episode. Related Episodes:YNP #002: Which Type of Dog is Right for You?YNP #005: Crate Training: How to Make Their Crate Your Dog’s Best FriendYNP #009: Why Indoor Pads Should NOT be Used When House Training Your PuppyYNP #010: Complete Guide to Potty Training Your Puppy

Dog Training It was great having Linn here...I saw depths of working with dogs that I have never seen before and I know we are just getting started. As a staff we have already implemented some changes and it's worked wonders with the dogs in our care. When the dust settled at the end of the week we sat down to have a casual conversation about the week, the dogs, techniques, and what the future holds.
Does your backyard look like someone has been digging for gold? Having a crater filled back yard is frustrating, not pretty and can even be dangerous.  Why do dogs dig?  Digging is one of those things that dogs just love to do.  It’s right up there with barking and chewing and being with us.The most common reasons why is boredom or has too much energy and he is looking to entertain himself.  Other reasons could be to cool dog, chase an animal or even escape.Because this is such a natural behavior your best bet is to redirect or distract from the digging instead of trying to just stop it.In this episode, I talk about the reasons dogs dig and some ways to help save your yard.I talk a little about using a “sandbox” which is a designated place in the yard where your dog is allowed to dig.  This is what I do and it works well.  In fact, here is Lucy sitting in one of her holes.  It’s her favorite because it’s nice and cool and she can watch the street.
Both a dog park and a dog daycare are a place for your dog to get lots of exercise while playing with his friends. Beyond that the experience is quite different.Where a dog park is free, daycares cost money.  You get to stay and interact and play with the other dogs and people at a dog park but a daycare allows you to take a break while your dog is having fun.The biggest difference is the socialization and safety of your dog.  Like anything that is free, a dog park involves more caution and risk.  Daycares carefully monitor the dog's health and behavior that participate in the play.If you take anything away from this episode it's this:  If your goal is to socialize your dog then a daycare is a place to go.  If you have a dog that is already well socialized, then a daycare still works.  A dog park can too, as long as you use common sense and caution.In this episode, I go through the pros and cons of each so you can decide what is best for you and your dog.
Dogs learns through repetition and reward. The easiest and most efficient way to reward your dog is by using treats. That is why they are the go-to for trainers and dog owners.Even though treats is the most popular way to reward your dog they are not, by far, the only way.  In fact, there are so many ways to reward our dog we do it everyday by accident. What we can do is use these non-treat rewards to our advantage.The best alternative (and easiest) is our attention.  Do not underestimate the value of your verbal praise and attention.  This is something we always carry with us so we never have to wean off our verbal praise like we do with treats.  In this episode, I go through a bunch of examples to get you started.  The key is to look at your dog’s environment and see what motivates them, what makes them happy, and then use that to reward them for good behavior .It’s time to think outside the (treat) box.Enjoy!Photo by Leio McLaren (@leiomclaren) on Unsplash

What do we do when our dog steals our stuff?We all know the scene: it’s gotten a little too quiet so you go searching for the little fuzzball that was just at your feet. You turn the corner and there he is, chomping happily away on the book you were reading earlier, or maybe it’s something that clearly came out of the garbage.First, you panic because don’t know how much he actually ate. Once you know he’s ok, it’s time to clean up the mess or mourn the possession you are now tossing in the trash.Dogs love to chew. It’s just a fact. It's one of the basic things that all dogs do. But when our dog steals our things to chew on it can be dangerous and at the very least, frustrating.What do we do to protect our dog and our stuff?In this episode, I talk about a few things that you can start doing to stop your dog from stealing your stuff. I also go over how to teach him what he is allowed to chew on.To give you an example I have a case study for you to give you an idea of how I handled this in a real world situation.Links and Info in this episode:Episode 5 (Crate Training)
There are a bunch of different types of dog training programs out there. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages.  Which one (or ones) you choose depends on your learning style, what's going on with your dog, and what your budget is.In this episode, I take a look at a puppy class vs obedience class vs private training vs online trainingNo matter which one you think is right for you it all comes down to you doing the work.  Once you walk out of the class or the trainer walks out the door it’s just you and your pup.  The last thing you need to do is find a trainer that has the program you want and that you like and trust.  Believe me, it's worth the time to call, talk to and research because your relationship with the trainer can make all the difference. Press play to listen to the entire episode.

Bringing your puppy home is exciting and maybe a little stressful. The ride home is the first time you are 100% responsible for them.If this is your first puppy you may be even more nervous. Your puppy might be nervous too.  It’s a short and simple topic but something I get asked all the time.  Bringing your puppy home should be exciting, not nerve-racking.  So I have some advice for you to help it go smoother.Whether it’s a 15-minute ride from your local rescue or a 10-hour ride from your breeder there are some things you can do to be ready.A few tips I discuss in the episode:* Have a towel* Bring one person but not the whole family.  You want one person taking care of the dog and one person driving but you don’t want the whole family overwhelming the puppy* Bring something that smells like other your other pets.  * Have a plan for when you get home.  Right now the ride home seems like it’s the most important thing in the world.  You are going to have so much time with your puppy, just make sure they are safe and comfortable.  Photo by Emerson Peters on Unsplash

We have another bonus episode in store for you today! We speak with Dr. Jim Sanderson, a conservationist and Program Manager of Wild Cat Conservation at the Global Wildlife Conservation. We wanted to speak with him about the Andean Cat, because he is one of the very few people to ever see one in nature. While we did learn some cool things about the cat, we also learned a lot about a new field - conservationism.   It was such an honor to get the chance to speak with Dr. Sanderson. This episode is a bit longer than usual, but we thought the whole interview was so interesting, we didn't know what to cut.  We hope you enjoy it, and are as inspired by Dr. Sanderson's work as we are!   We should be back to our normal format after this. We look forward to thanking our newest Patreon sponsor on that episode.

There are three types of training that you need to turn your puppy into a well-rounded, well-behaved, and well-mannered dog.When we think of training our dog we usually think about teaching our dog to “listen to me” I want him to come when I say come and stay when I say stay. Or we don’t even think about training until a bad behavior starts and we want to correct it.  In this episode, I talk about three different types of training that you need.  My goal is to get you to approach training your dog a little differently. Instead of it being something that you do when needed it’s actually something that is integrated into your everyday life with your dog.   .p16c9ff336eb{opacity:0.15;}.p16c9ff336f0{opacity:0.2;}.p16c9ff55484{opacity:0.15;}.p16c9ff55488{opacity:0.2;} Press play to listen to this podcast episode or subscribe to Your New Puppy where ever you listen to your podcasts. Here is a summary of each type I talk about. Skills trainingThis is the type of training that we think of.  It involves formally training your dog to do something on command.  The most common example is obedience training.  This is the training we gravitate to because it's really easy to see.  We tell our dog to do something and we do it.  The feedback is obvious.  Preventative trainingStop bad habits before they start.  When we put our shoes away so our puppy doesn't discover them or when we take our dogs for a walk before they use their extra energy to dig up the garden.  This is a more subtle type of training but it is just as important.  Habit trainingWhere preventative training is stopping bad habits before they start, habit training is creating everyday good habits on purpose.  Potty training is teaching our dog the habit of going to the bathroom outside only.  When we play with our dog when they pick up their own toys to chew on we are teaching them to always play with their toys.   All ThreeThere isn't one of these that is more important than the other.  In fact, they all work together and most of the time you will be using more than one.  So, you don’t have to know which one you are doing when.  The point here is that training is more than just teaching your dog to "listen to me."  Sometimes training is done in the everyday subtle things like closing the front door or putting the remote on a high shelf or consistently not allowing them on the couch or bed.It's also important to know that just about everything we do with our puppy means something.  This can help in those moments that you feel that nothing is happening and your puppy isn't learning.  Remember those little things count just as much as the big stuff.  Press play to listen to the full episode with more details and examples.  Enjoy!
We were excited to receive a copy of “A Book of Rather Strange Animals” by Caleb Compton. Just like it sounds, the book is a collection of unusual, weird, wacky, and just plain cool animals.  In this episode we talk about a few of the animals in the book: the purple frog; sea bunny; hammerhead worm; and vampire squid.   Want to answer the creature quiz, riddle, or tell us about how you did on the kid challenge?

There are so many dog supplies out there it can be overwhelming. Over the years I have developed a list of my go-to supplies that I use and recommend to my clients.In this episode, I talk about what my favorite dog supply is in each of these 8 categories and why they have become my go-to. All supplies can be found on Chewy.com or BarkBox.com. 1. Training treat: Freeze dried liverI never met a dog that could resist these liver treats.  You can break them down into small training pieces or even sprinkle some on top of a picky eaters food.  There is only one ingredient and they are made in the USA.2. Leash pulling tool: Front clip harnessI prefer using harnesses for leash walking in general.  Especially if you have a heavy puller.  The traditional collar can put a lot of pressure on the neck.  With the leash clipped in the front (you don't need a double leash like the picture below) when they start to pull they get turned around so it's hard for them to get the leverage they need to pull hard.  3. Food bowl: Treat ballI may be cheating a little bit with this one.  It's not actually a food bowl, but it is my favorite way to feed your dog.  Instead of inhaling their dinner from a bowl, they knock around a ball and their food comes out.  You have to feed your dog anyway, let them occupy themselves for 20 minutes instead of 20 seconds.4. Chew toy: KongSimilar to the treat ball above you can stuff the Kong with your dog's dinner or some homemade healthy wholefoods (skip the store bought stuffing).  Now your puppy is occupied, chewing, and eating something healthy or their own food!5. Teething chew: Ice cubeSimple, free and can entertain your dog for hours (weather permitting).  Best part is, they are already in your freezer. 6. Bone: Deer antlerAntlers can be a little pricey but they last a loooong time.  I like to use these as the special bone they only get in their crate during crate and potty training. 7. Crate: Life stages crateA crate is an essential tool for any new puppy owner. There are lots of types out there. The life stages crate comes with a divider so it can grow with your puppy.  You can also buy an oversize crate and remove the divider once your puppy is potty trained.  8. Dog supply company: BarkBox*There aren't many companies I get excited about but this one is an exception.  BarkBox is a monthly subscription box full of treats and toys.  The toys are high quality, the treats are healthy and they take great care in making the details fun!  They are a fun, cheeky company that also does lots of work with rescue and shelter pets. *This link uses a referral code that any current BarkBox customer can give you.  If you have a friend that already uses BarkBox, use their code and they will get a free box.  I have my free box going to a shelter pet. I am not affiliated in any way. Listen to the full episode below and enjoy!

Loose leash walking (aka: the holy grail of dog training) is hands down the most requested behavior of all time from pet clients. It's also a topic of much debate on dog training circles.

Indoor pads (also called wee-wee pads or potty pads) have a purpose but house training should not be one of them.If you want to teach your puppy to go to the bathroom outside only, these pads can be detrimental to this training.Indoor pads are one of those products that seem like a great tool (and are even advertised to us) but are anything but. In the long run they create more work. It's also possible your pup may never be fully house trained.In this episode, I talk about why I strongly discourage the use of indoor pads for house training.If you plan to use indoor pads regularly, I give you a few reasons why that may not be a great idea either.For some indoor pads are a great option, but for most, they are not.Potty training is a right of passage for any puppy owner.  It’s a time-consuming process that can be frustrating at times so it’s only natural for us to grab something that might make it easier.  However, I promise you if you put in the work now, it will be worth it in the end.Talk to you inside!Related Episodes:YNP #010: Complete Guide to Potty Training Your Puppy

This week we talk about tugging and specifically what I did with my dog, Rugby, to build it. My terrier, Rugby, came straight out of the package with good food drive already installed. All I had to do was harness it. But getting him started with toys was a much harder process. I pretty much had to build his toy play from scratch in order to have anything useful to work with. It seems like a lot of trouble. Why even bother? Listen to this episode to find out. For full show notes, visit: www.wonderpupstraining.com/podcast/71 This episode is sponsored by Zero to CD.

Long time cockatoo expert and aviculturist Katy McElroy talks about what creates the best foundation for a resilient parrot and the unique ways she was inspired to tackle some interesting challenges. In between the lines of our conversation are the ways that we can look to each other, no matter how different we are to help animals. From wild birds offering us clues to help breeding conservation efforts to aviculturists using their wisdom to help parrots build more adaptable skills, we can all become students of each other.

Dog Training Man did I ever get some flack about this Live Stream! There are a lot of dog owners out there that actually think their 4-legged furry dog is actually a human! Needless to say this topic gets me going and I cut loose during this live stream to get my point across! P.S. HOPE YOU LIKE THE NEW INTRO ;-)
Dog Training I'll be the first to admit that I don't have all the answers or there are some situations that I can't advise without seeing the dog. That happened during the live stream but because I'm building such a network I can now find a trainer for an owner that's struggling with their dog. This is a fun episode with the subjects above, if you're a dog owner you will get something out of this episode!
Dog Training I don't think you will find a nicer guy than Dan. He has packed a wealth of experience in a short amount of time attending both levels of TCW, working in rescue, and working for a few different dog daycare's. He grew up in a house where his mom was helping rescue dogs so he's been with dogs since day 1. Enjoy the conversation, I don't think you will find a nicer guy!
