How trainers make you see their content is an enlightening discussion as Pat shares his experiences working within a marketing company. During that time, he reveals the strategy that social media algorithms use to encourage more views and longer time spent on the page.

This is why we see trainers stepping outside their profession and spending more time being a performer than a trainer and making outrageous content. Many of them ar...

Perfection is paralysis when you find yourself unable to take a leap at anything in life until it’s perfect. This is why we see so many younger people fail to launch as they feel whatever they do, must be perfect.

It really is disheartening to see paralysis prevent talent from taking form in the dog training industry. It’s worse to know that paralysis came from fear of letting their mentor down.

However, a new year is upon us and...

People who are upheld in the community are giving fictional advice while contradicting their own practices.

Trainers who misquote, mislead and misunderstand tools are continuing to create ficti...

You really don’t understand dogs at all when you appear to believe that training a dog is the same as training a marine mammal. Yes there are comparisons. Yes we have learned many great concepts from marine mammal trainers. However, if you still think it’s the same, then you most certainly don’t understand.

Furthermore, what people fail to understand is the implications that training tool bans are going to have on dogs. It’s fri...

3 biggest mistakes new dog owners make is a headline based around one of those social media posts where someone dances and points at brief answers. We managed to almost make an hour and a half show on some of the points we felt needed open discussion on some of those mistakes.

Speaking of mistakes, we also found that we have no standardised language which attributes to handlers and trainers adding to the list of mistakes during con...

Incompatible behaviour & positive punishment is a topic from a quote that we posted on our instagram some months back. The quote was from Dr. Susan Friedman and it says.

“The key question is not, how do I stop this problem behaviour? Rather, the question is, what do I want the animal to do instead, then teach it.”

It’s a good quote with plenty of merit. There are many who have taken it and have inferred that in order to do th...

Lessons from the tantrum came from an actual full scale, first off tantrum that Pat’s second son Axel had. According to Pat, it was of epic proportions and it gave him some perspective on how his dog must feel when he is confused about a situation and doesn’t have the ability to effectively communicate it.

Any good educator will always consider the teachable moment, even in an unfavourable moment. Even a child’s tantrum, which mo...

This aside, it raised some interesting notation on social media marketers versus their actual ability as a trainer. Multiples of conversations have been had on our platform and others about the effectiveness o...

Without the cookies, I'm just a monster is a part of a bigger story that developed from a listeners question on our discussion forum. It came about when we discussed how people can carry a burden for so long, that when given an option to lose it, they are scared of who they are without their cookies, or bad behaviors. The majority of the story is talking about the potential of poisoning reinforcers, (food) when connecting d...

The evils of cherry picking information have been more evident in social media posts where agenda driven lunatics are trying to destroy a target. Politicians are amongst the worst of the cherry pickers, especially around election times. They are also amongst the least trusted people in the world. Cherry pickers are trying to direct the attention of many people onto the focus of one or several people. However, they may need to...

Intuition versus learned from others was being discussed in an on-line forum and there were some interesting back and forth comments which sparked good conversation. So what's right? Do trainers have intuition from the beginning or do they always learn from a skilled mentor. If we are talking about intuition, what does that even look like or feel like to those who have it? How did your mentor learn when they got into the...

My partner is not a dog person, is almost blasphemy in the industry of dog trainers, yet it's not that abnormal.
