Just about every dog is going to have some trouble with the hot weather. For some dogs even a slight elevation in temperature will find them seeking out the shade and wanting shorter walks. The heat itself can be tiring for a dog so it tends to shorten walks and activity. This will result in us having to find creative ways to entertain our dog and …

Pet insurance isn't the most interesting topic I've ever talked about but it is important. Most often I get the question "is pet insurance worth it?" And I think this is the wrong question. We most often compare it to our own health insurance. But there are key differences that mean we have to think about pet insurance in a different way. Is it goi…

It can be counter intuitive but when your puppy has a potty accident, we shouldn't punish them. You may feel that you need to do something to let them know "this is wrong". Or maybe you know that you're not supposed to punish your puppy's potty accidents but you're not sure why. In general, I discourage using punishment as a form of teaching your p…

When I receive multiple questions from my listeners around the same topic I know it's time to do a podcast episode about it.

When your dog refuses to go outside in the rain, it can be annoying and time consuming. It's even worse when you're trying to potty train a young puppy that isn't going to hold it until the rain stops. For most dogs they will learn to tolerate it but for others it may always be a struggle. We know we should stay positive to try and change their ass…

Muzzle training your dog means exposing your dogs to wearing a muzzle in a positive, stress-free way (see resources below on how to do this). This is something that most of us never think (or want to think) about doing with our dog. It's understandable because muzzles have a bad rap and are thought of as a last resort for an aggressive dog. But the…

Is your dog trying to dominate you? The short answer is no, they are not. And though that might not come as a surprise to you, what isn't always clear is why it's not true. Especially because this theory that dogs want to dominate us or some dogs are more "dominate" than others still comes […] The post YNP #087: Is Your Dog Trying to Dominate You? …

Teaching your dog to come when called (recall) is arguably the most important skill you can teach your dog. It's also one that we struggle with the most.

Potty training can be overwhelming. The good news is, one of the first things we can check off the list is getting our puppy to sleep through the night.

Most of the time we want to use the cue "off" to tell our dogs to "get down". For example, when they jump on us or our guests or when they jump on the table or counter.
