Have you ever wondered if traditional obedience training is really the best approach for building a strong bond with your dog?
In this episode, I dive into this topic and challenge the conventional methods of obedience training. I believe that it’s time to shift our thinking and focus on teaching dogs the skills they need to be confident, stable, and happy adults, while also considering their emotional and mental well-being. Some of the things I cover in this episode are:
  • Challenging traditional obedience training methods
  • Maslow’s hierarchy of needs for dogs
  • The importance of meeting basic needs for training and relationship-building
  • Mental and physical exercise for dogs
  • Introducing the PupPod interactive toy for dogs
I hope this episode prompts you to reconsider the traditional approach to obedience training and make the shift to prioritizing your dog’s emotional and mental well-being. By approaching training this way, we can create a strong bond and help our dogs become happy, well-adjusted adults.
