#125: Behavioral Euthanasia with Dr. Chris Pachel
Play • 1 hr 15 min

In this episode, we discuss who makes the decision - the vet, the trainer, or the pet owner; how behavioral euthanasia is an "active choice" rather than a default decision - there is no formula, and this isn’t something that someone has to do because of a specific behavior pattern or problem, but rather an option that may be actively chosen due to safety or quality of life concerns that aren’t able to be mitigated; how professionals can support and guide pet owners through the process; the issues of guilt and shame associated with deciding to euthanize an otherwise healthy dog; and the importance of self-care and good boundaries.

The Most Important Word That You'll Use In Your Dog Training
In this live stream, we will talk about the importance of consistency and how using one little word in your dog training can be the difference between success and failure. We have high expectations of every one of our students, and we know just how much of an impact this one little word can have (having taught nearly 100,000 students at McCann Dogs). Have you ever wondered why your dog will come back to you when you call sometimes and other times they'll do laps around you or run right by you? Ever wondered why they will remain exactly where you asked them to sit sometimes and other times they'll just go off and do their own thing? We'll let you in on a little secret that will show you how to teach your dog work for you because you're being really clear about your expectations. We record a new livestream every other week on YouTube, so be sure to check out our channel so we can answer your puppy training, or dog training question LIVE! We Have A FULLY SUPPORTED Puppy Essentials Training Program Online! Train With Us To Make Your Puppy Training More Enjoyable And To Give Your Puppy The Best Start Possible: https://www.McCannDogs.Link/PuppyEssentials  Are you looking for a personalized training plan for YOUR dog?

Episode 120: Winning Adult Hide and Seek with Mic Bonin
“Can’t bite ‘em if you can’t find ‘em” This episode is truly mind blowing 🤯 with the Hide and Seek Expert, Mic Bonin; proving that K9 guys really are the Swiss Army knives of LEO 😎🐕! Mic started tracking at the ripe young age of 12 in southeast Texas, joined the Army in 1996, then Tulsa County Sheriff Office in 2005. He was a member of SWAT, and was part of the sniper team for 10 years - and he essentially gave dogs the platform to make K9 tracking a bigger deal. Tune in to hear stories about his longest track done on duty (6 miles long 😱), about one track on armed robbers (and how the money was recovered 💰), bust some myths about tracking in the snow ❄️, and the debate on should handlers be trained as visual trackers 🤔? The guys also delve into tactical tracking vs patrol, and discuss investigative tracking, patrol/SAS tracking, and SAR tracking. Mic is the real tracking deal, and you can learn more through SpearPoint Training Group (@sptraininggroup) www.sptraininggroup.com or www.nalet.org ⁣𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗢𝗙 𝗖𝗢𝗨𝗥𝗦𝗘, thank you to our amazing partners:⁣ ⁣ ⁣ @KineticDogFood⁣ www.kineticdogfood.com⁣ 513-615-6904⁣ ⁣ @horizonstructures⁣ 888-447-4337⁣ www.horizonstructures.com/commercial-dog-kennels⁣ ⁣ ⁣ @southerncoastk9⁣ 877.903.DOGS⁣ https://www.southerncoastk9.com⁣ ⁣ @rayallenk9 ⁣ www.rayallen.com⁣ Discount code “WORKINGDOGRADIO” for 10% off⁣ ⁣ @dogtraofficial ⁣ www.dogtra.com⁣ Discount code “WDR10” for 10% off of a single item over $200⁣ ⁣ @hits_k9 Training and Conference ⁣ Jeff Barrett at 863-529-5113⁣ www.hitsk9.net⁣ ⁣ @quickdermbyvetcare ⁣ www.vetcare.us⁣ Discount code “10WDR” for 10% off of your first order⁣ ⁣ @tacticalpolicek9⁣ www.tacticalpolicek9training.com⁣ ⁣ @almk9equipment⁣ www.almk9equipment.com⁣ Discount code “WDRADIO” for 10% off of your first order⁣ ⁣ @tripwire_operations_group ⁣ www.tripwireops.org⁣ ⁣ Music with permission by @brotherdege ⁣ www.brotherdege.net⁣ #workingdogradio #broadcastingthebite⁣

Session 101: E-Collar Training Explored with Eric Letendre
We have a new conversation with Eric Letendre, a great trainer based in the Massachusetts area. Last time I spoke to Eric (in episode 66) he'd published his first book, The Deadly Dog Training Myth. There is so much conversation about remote training collars, but specifically a lot of misunderstandings about what they are for and what they can do. And it is important to note that a lot of understanding can be gained with this technology by understanding Skinner's Four Quadrants. I talked about this in podcast sessions 73 (part 1) and session 74 (part 2). Note that these will open in new tabs so you won't lose your place here. I ask Eric about some of the mistakes people make when it comes to choosing a collar. We talk about "lesser"/"cheaper" collar types. I tell a funny story about a client who had a very interesting experience and why he gave up on it. Misuse and misunderstanding are a very big factor when considering this training method. Eric talks about dog owners basic use methods; * As a low level negative reinforcement (or pressure and release) * Using it as a positive reinforcement (at a comfortable level) We'll talk about how it can be an incredibly good or bad tool to use depending on the type you use, and your understanding about the psychological approach that you take when training your dog with it. Imagine a dog's response when you get certain things out and the positive response you receive. When you bring out the remote training collar, what association do you imagine the dog having? After listening to this podcast, it won't surprise you to know that dogs (trained properly) have a positive response to an e-collar! Eric will talk about his philosophy about when the collar is applied during a real life training session and why that is. We talk a bit about each of our philosophies and the importance of that timing. Eric's YouTube Page The Deadly Dog Training Myth on Amazon

Fixing Grip Issues in Sport and Police Dogs
In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses: * How the grip can vary depending on the sport you’re training for. * What it means to have a bad grip and why different ways bad grip may manifest. * Teaching your dog to be unsatisfied with any bite that is not at the back of the mouth. * Teaching the basic fundamentals from a young age, including social interaction and teaching the dog to work with other trainers. * Taking the proper time through progressions and not pushing too hard too fast. Key Takeaways: * A firm grip is more important than a calm grip. We want the dog to default to a full grip, all the way back to the back teeth. * Genetics provides a capacity, but the training can enhance or ruin what the genetics are bringing to the table. * Give your dog something challenging to bite. A lot of busy grips come from a failure to challenge the grip and give the dog something they can bite successfully. * Challenging the grip is one of the most important things you can do as you go through your training progressions. "The firmness, the fullness, the hardness, those are the things that really determine the grip." — Jerry Bradshaw Get Jerry's book Controlled Aggression on Amazon.com Contact Jerry: Website: controlledaggressionpodcast.com Tarheel Canine Training: www.tarheelcanine.com Youtube: tarheelcanine Twitter: @tarheelcanine Instagram: @tarheelk9 Facebook: TarheelCanineTraining Protection Sports Website: psak9-as.org Patreon: patreon.com/controlledaggression Slideshare: Tarheel Canine Sponsors: ALM K9 Equipment: almk9equipment.com PSA & American Schutzhund: psak9-as.org Tarheel Canine: tarheelcanine.com Train Hard, train smart, be safe.

Episode #253 - Reid Marshall and Marina Santiago (Wombat and Brown-Eyed Girl)
This week, we feature a couple who met on the trail in 2019 and have been a couple ever since. Reid Marshall and Marina Santiago are, however, locationally challenged, as Reid is in Australia and Marina is in Denver. I was fortunate enough to have met Reid on my thru-hike and was impressed with his calm and thoughtful demeanor. When we met, near the VT / NH border, Reid was on his own and didn't meet Marina until many miles later. Such is the serendipity of the trail. They share the story of their respective and joint hikes, as well as their adventures together since the AT. You can connect and find out more about them at their Challenge & Beauty website, https://challengeandbeauty.com/, find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/challengeandbeauty, on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/challenge_and_beauty/. Their first book, Trail Running Utah, is available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Trail-Running-Utah-Challenge-Beauty/dp/1661352820/ref=sr_1_1 Their second set of books, Trail Running Tasmania and Day Hikes Tasmania, are available in the US via special order on their website: https://challengeandbeauty.com/order-now/ Their illustrated book about their AT experience, Filthy and Free, is in the works and will be available later this year. I'll let you know when that comes out. This week on the Know Before You Go ATC part of the show, Laurie Potteiger suggests that we "Explore Locally." She tells us about alternative trails to explore, some of which are listed here. www.appalachiantrail.org/explore/plan-and-prepare/hiker-resource-library/alternate-trails/ A link to the Alternate Trails page, as well as ATC's Day-hiking and Overnight Hiking checklists updated for hiking during COVID-19, and many other useful pages, can be found in the Hiker Resource Library at www.appalachiantrail.org/hiker-resources. Don't forget, if you are going to get on the AT, make sure you register at www.ATCamp.org. In our book reading of Larry Luxenburg's Walking the Appalachian Trail, Larry talks about everybody's favorite subject; food and the exquisite possibility of eating guiltlessly.

Remodel vs New Build | Nostalgic or Fresh?
Today’s topic is about the ever present question: New Build or Remodel. We get a lot of questions about this so we've decided to discuss this subject and help you guys understand what to focus on when considering either option. Cory tells about his DIY remodel and the ongoing challenges he faced and his vote is on a new build. Sue however, just bought and is in the process of remodeling because she likes the sentimentality and nostalgia that goes into a remodel. WIth a new build, it gives people the opportunity to start fresh and assures the buyer that everything will work. While some people love to have a space that contains memories and feel the challenges are worth the trade-off. “When we're starting to work with a client and we're building a new home, we ask them, ‘Do you have anything from your previous home you want us to catalogue and make sure we include?’ And the majority of the time they say, ‘No, we want to start all over.’ And in my heart I kind of sink a little bit because I'm like, ‘Dang it.’ They've obviously invested in pieces, but none of it is important enough. There’s no memory tied to it to bring it to this new house.” 33:09 Join our mailing list to see space plans and get exclusive offers: https://manage.kmail-lists.com/subscriptions/subscribe?a=HZENWY&g=HnpGxW Cory’s remodel 7:04 One of the hard things about a remodel 12:49 New Construction 18:35 “We've worked with people, often when we're starting to work with a client and we're building a new home, we ask them, ‘Do you have anything from your previous home you want us to catalogue and make sure we include?’ And the majority of the time they say, ‘No, we want to start all over.’ And in my heart I kind of sink a little bit because I'm like, ‘Dang it.’ They've obviously invested in pieces, but none of it is important enough.
