Ever felt like you're at the end of your leash with dog training challenges? Well, you're in luck because National Train Your Dog Month is here, and we're unleashing a wealth of knowledge to help you and your pooch overcome those pesky behavioral hurdles. From potty training slip-ups to mastering the art of a calm sit-stay amid the jingle of doorbells, our latest discussion has got you covered. Tune in, and I, Will Bangura, your seasoned host with 35 years of dog behavior expertise, will guide you through the ins and outs of nurturing a harmonious relationship with your four-legged friend.

In our comprehensive chat, we don't just scratch the surface; we go deep into practical advice, peppered with heartwarming tales that showcase the transformative power of reward-based training. Learn how to tackle the all-too-common problem of dogs leaping up in excitement, especially around those who are more vulnerable, like kids and the elderly. We explore the necessity of teaching alternative behaviors, with a focus on safety, patience, and positive reinforcement. Plus, I'll provide you with strategies to help your dog respond to an emergency recall, a command that could literally be a lifesaver.

But that's not all—our conversation also touches on the subtleties of doggy etiquette, from sharing toys to bed behavior. Understanding that canines don't come with an innate sense of generosity, we discuss how to steer them towards peaceful interactions with both humans and other dogs. I'll take your burning questions and offer tailored advice, ensuring that by the time you tune out, you'll be fully equipped with the insights and techniques to enhance your dog's well-being and strengthen the bond you share. Don't miss out on this tail-wagging training talk that's sure to set you and your pup on the path to success.
