Using a Head Halter on a Dog, Why My Approach is so Different
Visit us at shapedbydog.com Today I’m sharing with you how I get brilliant behaviours with my dogs. No matter what you are training, the key to success is to build value for what you want your dog to do and avoid your dog rehearsing undesirable behaviours. I’ll walk you through it step by step using walking on a leash as an example, and for me, that starts with using a Head Halter. Now before you turn off, you need to know that how I use a Head Halter is very different to nearly everyone out there. I’m also covering how not to use a Head Halter and clearing up common misconceptions. In the episode you'll hear: • Why behaviours get inadvertently chained and how to avoid it. • How to set your dog up for success and keep your dog safe. • Why the use of a Head Halter is controversial. • What walking your dog has to do with driving a car. • About the importance of protective gear. • What you should never do with a Head Halter. • Why I have to earn the right to put a Head Halter on my dog. • How I condition my puppy or dog to a Head Halter. • Why you need to know what you want your dog to do. • The 3 things I train for the times my dog and I come across a distraction when walking. • Everything I do differently when conditioning and using a Head Halter. • How we can be fair to our dogs by rehearsing success. • Why I let my dogs have a choice. • Strategies to use in the face of distractions when you are out with your dog. • What my ultimate goal is when I use a Head Halter.

437 – Richard Reynolds on Foxhounds and Favors
437 – Richard Reynolds on Foxhounds and Favors   Mr Richard Reynolds is joining us today. This is the first part of a two-part episode. We're going to talk about rat hunting and foxhounds and all kinds of fabulous historical stuff, because he is a brain trust of all things history in purebred dogs.   Reynolds said his involvement in purebred dogs “started from a National Geographic magazine. I was a young lad in his early teens and I came upon a National Geographic magazine that had an article Westminster, the World Series of Dogs” circa 1949.   “All of my colleagues had Playboy magazine hidden under their mattresses and I had National Geographic,” Reynolds said, “not for the same purpose of course.”   Reynolds said he acquired his first Beagle “for the princely sum of $35 from a gentleman who hunted them and, as they say, the rest was history.   “The first Beagle fell somewhat short of being a show dog, but the next one was a show dog. It cost a great deal more than $35, although I'm not sure it was worth much more. That kind of got me started with the dog showing thing.”   Reynolds' focus has always been on preserving breed type through concentration on performance ability. He was a Master of Foxhounds with the only dual registry recognized hunting pack. His Old English hounds won a group at Westminster, many Bests in Show, many Large Pack classes at hound shows and the occasional Grand Championship. Most important, each hound hunted a regular three day a week schedule.   Comparing the English and American Foxhounds, Reynolds notes, “The old English Foxhound is heavier, larger. Level top line. Picture, if you will, a bulldozer on feet. The American foxhound is lighter, leggier, has a slight rise over the loin to give it speed. It's of course descended from the English Foxhound, but it's not exactly the same. They both have their purposes and, like all of the hounds and terriers, that purpose is directly related to the country, the land where the dog hunts and works. American foxhounds are suited to the wide open spaces in the United States and the English are suited to the Gorse hedges and stone walls and whatever of England. We found them very useful in Pennsylvania where I'm at because we have a wonderful agricultural phenomenon known as the multiflora rose.”   Reynolds’ most famous dog was Ch. Mr Stewart's Cheshire Winslow.   “He hunted pretty good and he was a reasonably good stud dog,” Reynolds quipped, “but he was a really good show dog. He was the top of all hound breeds in 1983, won the Quaker oats award for the top winning hound, and then he kind of walked out of Westminster in 1984 with the hound group. So having done that, we figured that we were duty bound to get him back to the hunt field the following morning. So he won the group at Westminster on Tuesday night, and hunted Fox from horseback on Wednesday morning.”   Reynold’s wry, self-deprecating humor is a treasure to the dog community. Enjoy this episode and join us next week for our conversation on terriers.   Beagle> Westminster 1977. BoV under Peter Knoop was 13" Ch. Englandale's Crestwood Star. I sold her as a pet, but her owner believed that she could do anything and pushed me to show her. She not only finished her title, and won the variety at "the World Series of Dogdom", she also had several obedience titles.   EF> The hound was Mr. Stewart's Cheshire Federal, a gift to me from Nancy Penn Smith Hannum, MFH. There weren't any other AKC English Foxhounds around, so we finished him the hard way...by winning groups. I believe he was the seconmd AKC Ch. EF,   Horse> When one is a visitor, hunting with another recognized pack, it is courteous to wear a black coat rather than scarlet with your home hunt colors. This was on such an occasion with my ex-three day eventer, Eastwick.   On foot> These were my hounds in the Five Couple class at the... Support this podcast

COVID-19 Special Edition: Mental Health in a Locked-Down World
While some countries and U.S. states are beginning to reopen businesses and other gathering places, the pandemic is still very much with us. Physical distancing will likely be a way of life until a vaccine for COVID-19 is widely available. So much change, including the threat of illness, and grief of those who have lost loved ones, means that mental health is a great concern. Fortunately, there are things we can do to support our mental health at this time, especially when caring for young children or other family members. In this episode of The Brain Architects, host Sally Pfitzer speaks with Dr. Karestan Koenen, Professor of Psychiatric Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Dr. Archana Basu, Research Associate at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and a clinical psychologist at Massachusetts General Hospital. They discuss what supporting your own mental health can look like, as well as ways to support children you care for at this time. They also talk about what mental health professionals all over the world are doing to help take care of our societies in the midst of the pandemic, and how they're preparing for the challenges that come next.

I’m your host, Sally Pfitzer. Since our last podcast series was released, things have changed drastically as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. During this unprecedented time, we’d like to share resources and provide guidance that you may find helpful. So, we are creating a series of podcast episodes that address COVID-19 and child development. This episode is the fifth in our series, and todays guests are Dr. Karestan Koenen, Professor of Psychiatric Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Dr. Archana Basu, Research Associate at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Clinical Psychologist and Massachusetts General Hospital. Thank you both for being here I’m really looking forward to the conversation. Karestan: Thank you Sally. It's great to be here. Archana: Thank you so much. Sally: So Karestan, what makes this pandemic different from other traumatic events that many people have experienced in terms of mental health? Karestan: There are a number of characteristics that make the COVID-19 pandemic different than other traumatic events, even than other disasters. I actually lived in New York City during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and I’ve seen some similarities in terms of this in that things were shut down, there was a pervasive feeling of threat, there was loss of life, and it was very disruptive and it was something that people really – in New York, anyway – talked about for a long time. It persisted and affected everyone in the city. What’s different about this is the length of time people are being affected, how pervasive it is in terms of our community but the state, nationally,
