School For The Dogs' Sasha Prasad on helping animals live happier lives

Sasha Prasad moved to New York City with her three rescue dogs last year in order to get a masters degree in Animal Behavior and Conservation from Hunter. She began working at School For The Dogs right away, and has been with us ever since, doing everything from walking to client relations to social media. Her passion is helping all animals live happier lives; dogs are just one of the creatures she wants to work with.

The Charles Mingus' CAT-alog for Toilet Training Your Cat (1972)

When he wasn't revolutionizing the world of mid-20th century jazz music, Charles Mingus was home training his cat, Nightlife. Specifically, he was really into training Nightlife to go on the toilet. Indeed, he was something of an evangelist on the subject. Here, Annie reads from "The Charles Mingus CAT-alog for Toilet Training Your Cat," his 1972 brochure that outlines a step-by-step process. You can find the full text here https://www.charlesmingus.com/mingus/cat-traning-program?utm_content=buffer97a50 Train your own cat with a modern invention: The Litter Kwitter https://litterkwitter.com/ Music: Full of Love from Album Stay Tonight, by Till Paradiso (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) https://freemusicarchive.org/music/till-paradiso/stay-tonight/full-of-love-tp-031mp3

The Bully Test: How to tell if your dog (or kid or country) is having fun PLUS: FOMO crate training

If two dogs are playing, and you're unsure if your dog is into it, there is a simple "test" you can perform. The Bully Test, which was coined by Dr. Ian Dunbar, is a great way to tell how your dog feels about his or her playmate. Annie looks at how she herself behaved when faced with childhood mean girls, and how voters reacted when bullied by the Bully-In-Chief. Also: Is "bully" an inherent quality in a dog? Or a kid? Is there a term that we could come up with that doesn't vilify one of two puppies when performing this "test?" And: Why you shouldn't expect dogs to just "working it out" during play. Lastly: Annie explains how to use FOMO to train dogs to love going in crates.

Recycled treats and retractable leashes: The good, the bad & the hilarious

In this episode, you'll learn about two products, each invented by a woman. The first is something you've probably encountered: the retractable leash. The second is a new brand of treats called Shameless Pets, which makes yummy stuff for dogs from pre-consumer food waste. The former can be quite dangerous, but Annie suggests a way to make it safer; the latter is a successful version of a Seinfeld-esque business plan that Annie's neighbor came up with in the 1990s. In between tips about using a retractable leash and the story of Shameless Pets, you'll hear a hilarious piece of standup by comedian Drew Lynch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um5XSNNvEdg Mary Delaney's patent https://patents.google.com/patent/US887072A/en Shameless Pet Treats https://storeforthedogs.com/collections/shameless-pets Free guide to house training http://schoolforthedogs.com/house
