Don't Touch My Stuff!

How much do you know about resource guarding in dogs? If your pup growls at you over his food bowl or his favorite rawhide, don't be embarrassed - you're not alone! It might surprise you to learn that this is a normal canine behavior, and one that's usually fairly easy to modify with some smart management and a good training plan. Also, a bonus listener question on crate training - is it confusing for puppies to have more than one crate?

Myths About Training With Food

In today's episode, Dr. Jen tackles some common myths about using treats in training. Does using "human food" to train your dog make him more likely to beg at the table? If you use treats to train a behavior, is it true that you'll always need have food on hand to get your dog to listen? And why do we need food rewards, anyway - shouldn't our dogs do what we say because they respect us?

Dog Parks - Yes, No, Maybe So?

Today's episode is all about dog parks! Is your pup a good "dog park dog," or would you be better off finding other options for exercise? How can you tell? What does appropriate play look like, and how can you make sure your dog isn't being bullied? Plus, a bonus listener question about cat training! (But still tangentially related to working with dogs, since learning and behavior are the same across species.)
