Don’t miss a minute of this informative episode!

Common symptoms of anxiety in dogs.

Have you ever wondered if your dog suffers from anxiety? What should you look for? Is anxiety something that will significantly impact your dog’s quality of life or is it something that you can sufficiently manage? On this episode, Nick and Joe talk about the various symptoms of anxiety in dogs and what owners like you can do to identify them early and begin treatment. Joe explains that there are two tiers of behaviors when it comes to anxiety symptoms, mild fears and panic attacks.

Mild fears will initiate the following behaviors:

Trembling
Tail tucking
Hiding
Reduced activity
Searching for passive escape routes

Panic attacks will initiate the following behaviors:

Active searching for escape routes
Chewing on themselves constantly
Biting
Growling

To hear the guys expand on these common symptoms and how they show up in dogs who suffer from anxiety, make sure to listen to this helpful episode!

How CBD oil can help treat dogs with anxiety.

Now that you’ve seen what anxiety symptoms to look for in your dog, what steps can you take to solve or manage it? Did you know that CBD oil can help treat anxiety in dogs? It’s true! On this episode, you’ll hear from Nick and Joe as they explain how they’ve used CBD oil with their dogs and why they believe it can serve as an effective treatment for anxiety symptoms. Joe specifically points to the example of his dog, Yager and how CBD oil really made a difference with managing the anxiety that he suffers from. The guys also stress that there is no downside to treating your dog with CBD oil, so what do you have to lose? To hear more about Nick and Joe’s experience with using CBD oil on their dogs, make sure to listen to this episode.

Why you shouldn’t just assume your dog has anxiety.

While many of the symptoms that Nick and Joe have highlighted end up pointing to anxiety, it’s a good idea to slow the rush to diagnose your dog with suffering from anxiety. On this episode, the guys explain why anxiety symptoms can show up in your dog for causes unrelated to anxiety. Joe stresses the importance of taking your dog in for a physical examination by a veterinarian if you see symptoms of anxiety start to manifest. There could be underlying pain and other issues that may end up causing your dog to act in a way that points to anxiety. Make sure to listen to this episode as the guys go into further depth on this important topic!
Additional solutions for dogs with anxiety.

Nick and Joe have mentioned that using CBD oil has helped them with treating anxiety in their dogs, is that the best course of action? Are there other Solutions that dog owners like you can use to treat anxiety? On this episode, you'll hear from Nick and Joe as they provide additional solutions that you can use to treat your dog if they suffer from anxiety.

Thunder shirts
Puzzle toys
Long lasting chews
Crate training
Training in general
Calming music

While each of these solutions has varying degrees of success, Nick and Joe both encourage dog owners to try these options or CBD oil to treat anxiety in their dogs before they go down the path toward pharmaceutical medication. Listen to this episode to hear more from Nick and Joe on the subject of anxiety and much more!

Podcast cover
Read more
Have you been wondering what is the best food to feed your dog? There’s so much information out there about what’s best, dry dog food, wet dog food, or raw. The dog food choices are enough to make you go crazy. That’s why certified pet nutritionist and owner of the Dog Krazy pet food stores, Nancy Guinn comes on the show today. She is here to help answer this question and all of your dog nutrition questions. If you have any dietary questions or concerns you’ll want to listen to this episode because Nancy is an expert that really cares about what your dog is eating. Don’t miss this important interview that could affect your best friend’s health.

Have you seen dog food in the news?

If you’ve heard any news lately about dog food, you’ve probably heard about recalls on dog food. It seems that pet food brands always have a recall for one reason or another. Pet nutritionist, Nancy Guinn, says that not all pet food recalls are created equal. She recommends researching any recalls that may involve your favorite dog food brand. The most recent one happened because there were traces of a euthanasia drug in many brands of dog food. How on earth can this happen, you ask? Listen to this episode if you want to find out!

What should you feed your dogs?

Nancy Guinn joins The Dog Show to share her pet nutritionist expertise. She joins Joe to get to the bottom of the age-old question, what should you feed your dog? There are so many questions about dog food. For example, do puppies really need special food? What about seniors? Is it okay to feed your dog vegan? Which is best, dry dog food, wet dog food, or the infamous raw food diet? Nancy shares an amazingly easy secret to ensuring that your dog’s diet is the best that it can be. If you’re curious to hear what that is then you won’t want to miss this episode. Make sure you listen to find out how you should be feeding your four-legged friend.

Learn the ins and outs of dog nutrition

It doesn’t matter whether you’re feeding your dogs kibble, raw food, or canned food. Good nutrition is as simple as reading the ingredients on the back of the package. If it says meat or animal on the package rather than duck, beef, fish, or a specific kind of animal protein, don’t feed it to them. It is so important to know what each ingredient is. So if you don’t know what’s in the food then, don’t feed it to your dogs. The instructions on the back of the bag are a recommended portion size. Every dog metabolizes their food differently and may need more or less food. If you want to learn more about dog nutrition and how to feed your dogs what they should be eating then listen to this episode of The Dog Show to hear pet nutritionist, Nancy Guinn’s excellent advice on dog nutrition,

Should you feed your dog a raw diet?

There is a big debate out there on the raw food diet for dogs. Nancy says that if you can afford to feed your dogs raw then do it. A raw diet is very healthy for your dog. But, you cannot feed your dog a raw chicken every day and just walk away. They need extra supplements in their diets. A raw diet is not a complete diet for your dog. Listen to this episode with pet nutritionist, Nancy Guinn to learn everything you need to know to get your dog started on a raw food diet.

On this episode of The Dog Show, Nick opens up about his recent trip to Naples, Italy. Looking back on the trip now, Nick can laugh at the absolute absurdity of it all but at the time, you can see how it must have been really frustrating. Enjoy Nick and Joe’s entertaining back and forth as they walk through all the details of the trip and share some observations from the experience.
An unexpected predator for dogs.

What comes to mind when you think about predators for dogs? While your mind may quickly go to animals like coyotes, mountain lions and bears have you considered the danger presented by owls? Seriously! An owl is not going to swoop down and fly away with your German Shepherd or Labrador Retriever but Yorkies and puppies, beware!

Rank #7: Do You Really Need To Train Your Dog? Ep #3

Podcast cover
Read more
Do you really need to train your dog? How important is it for dog owners to have their dog trained? Are there any exceptions? Is it really a practical expectation? On this episode of The Dog Show, you’ll hear from Nick and Joe as they give their thoughts on why just about every dog owner should have their dog trained. The guys also go over recent news stories featuring dogs, the criticism they’ve received about their comments on the Amish community, what to do when obedience training is not enough, and so much more! You don’t want to miss a minute of this fascinating episode!
Addressing criticism from listeners.

Was it fair to say that in general, the Amish community does a poor job of breeding dogs? Did it cross the line or go too far? Does this opinion automatically mean that Nick and Joe dislike Amish people? On this episode of The Dog Show, the guys address recent criticism they’ve received for their comments on last week’s episode. While Nick and Joe don’t think that the Amish are bad people, they are simply speaking from their experience as trainers that generally speaking they’ve noticed that the Amish are subpar breeders. The guys also run down a list of some of the top problematic areas that are known for subpar dog breeders and show that they often fall into areas with a large Amish population. To hear more about this topic and their response to the criticism they’ve received, make sure to listen to this episode!
Why just about every dog owner should train their dog.

Should you spend the time and money to train your dog? Is it really worth the investment? In which scenarios is it OK to not train your dog? On this episode of The Dog Show, Nick and Joe explain why it’s important to train your dog. Joe is convinced that because we’ve domesticated dogs, it is our responsibility as humans to properly train the dogs we take into our care. The truth is, dogs thrive when they are trained in a structured environment. This doesn’t mean that you have to go to the extreme end of the spectrum, just know that your dog will be happier (and so will you) if you invest in decent obedience training. Of course, there will be situations where it’s not practical to train your dog, but those are the exception, not the rule! Go deeper with this topic by listening to this episode!
You’ve got to socialize your dog!

What are the advantages to socializing your dog? What are the drawbacks if you neglect this area of their development? On this episode of The Dog Show, Nick and Joe share the importance of socialization for dogs. Nick says that you can never go wrong with socializing your dog. But he has seen numerous examples of dogs who haven’t been socialized, to their detriment. Regardless of your unique situation, the guys highly recommend that you take the time to socialize and train your dog. Learn more tips and insights by listening to this episode!
Do your research before you get your dog trained.

Once you’ve come the conclusion that it’s important for you to train your dog, the question then becomes, where do you start? How do you pick the right trainer? Does it really matter where you go to get your dog trained? On this episode of The Dog Show, Nick and Joe go over some tips for finding the right dog trainer. While of course, they point to their own services, the guys want to make sure you do your research before you put in the time and money to train your dog. Don’t get duped! Find out why it’s important to do your research and how you can make the right pick by listening to this episode!

Rank #9: Do Dogs Need A Job?, Ep #4

Podcast cover
Read more
There is a lot of talk lately about whether or not dogs need a job - and the question is more about the well-being and health of the dog than it is about having a dog that does cool things for your friends and family. On this episode, Joe chats with his friend Joe Morris, a dog trainer extraordinaire who has insightful perspectives and training techniques that make him a great resource who can knowledgeably speak to this issue. In this conversation, you’re going to hear why it’s important to find a job for your dog, what it does for their well-being, how to select the right job for your breed and type of dog, and more.

What might happen if your dog doesn’t have an appropriate job?

If you’ve got a pet that doesn’t have a job to keep it occupied and use up its energy you may run into a wide variety of problems with your pet. Some will become lazy and unhealthy, essentially from boredom. Others may become overly aggressive or hyper. The difference will depend on the breed of dog and the conditions in its environment. Listen to this entire conversation to hear Joe and Joe discuss dogs, jobs, and various forms of training to facilitate the right job for your dog.

Could it be possible that the dog’s owner needs to find new activities?

There are many situations Joe and Joe come across where dog owners say that there is no real job they can give to their dog. Because of their belief that dog ownership is a heavy responsibility that is as much about the health and well-being of the dog as it is about the fun of the owner having a pet, they insist that many times the owner of the dog needs to find new passions, hobbies, or activities in order to provide a job for the dog. You can hear how the guys recommend owners go about it, on this episode of The Dog Show.

When you choose a job for your dog, understand it’s a commitment

It should be clear by now that having a job for your dog to do is important and that it’s for the well-being and health of your pet. Having said that, it’s important for dog owners to think the issue through all the way to the end. Choosing a job for your dog is not a one-time thing. It’s an ongoing commitment that you, the owner have to make in order to keep up the routine and discipline that enables your dog to actually do its job consistently. Find out how Joe and Joe recommend you go about it by listening to this episode.

How you can evaluate which job is best for your dog

Much of the decision about the job you choose for your dog will depend on the breed and temperament of your animal. There is no one-size-fits-all approach. One of the recommendations made on this episode is that dog owners visit their local training facility to consult with the trainers there about the specific needs of their dog when it comes to job selection. As in any situation, having the characteristics of the specific animal in mind and getting the advice of a skilled professional in light of it is the best way to go.

Have you ever thought about the differences between service dogs and emotional support dogs? Do you know how the law differentiates them? Chris Baity from Semper K9 joins The Dog Show to discuss the differences between the two and to discuss this important topic in general. The nonprofit, Semper K9, provides veterans with trained service dogs free of charge. Service dogs are a hot topic right now in the dog world and Chris walks through some key points about service dogs and how to work through the issues they present. Don’t miss what expert Chris Baity has to say about emotional support dogs on this episode of The Dog Show.
What is the difference between service dogs and emotional support dogs?

There are many differences between physical disabilities and emotional disabilities. Service dogs provide help to people with physical disabilities. These dogs may help their owners with specific tasks like crossing the street safely. It may be obvious that these are working dogs, but there is another type of dog that helps people. Emotional support dogs are specific to people who are suffering a range of psychiatric disorders. Some of these dog owners may be suffering PTSD, anxiety, agoraphobia, or a number of different issues. Listen to this episode as Chris Baity spells out the differences between service dogs and emotional support dogs.

How to stop the fake service dog problem

There are a lot of fake service dogs out there. Anyone can pay $59 and get an ‘official service dog’ vest for their dog to wear. All of these fake dogs are making problems for people who really need emotional support dogs. If something isn’t done soon, then the emotional support dog program could be ruined for those that need it most. This could be stopped with a service dog certification that is nationally recognized. The real question is: should this problem be legislated? Chris Baity weighs in on this issue and tells us how he is working with legislators on this episode of The Dog Show.

What should the criteria be to certify service dogs?

Certifying that a service dog is a real working dog really shouldn't be that challenging. The first criteria that should be required is a note from a doctor that specifies that a support dog is needed. Then the dog should prove that it is well-behaved and trained, it needs to be able to ignore its surroundings in front of a trained professional. There should also be a statement that specifies what service the dog provides for its owner. Listen to this episode to hear what service dog trainer Chris Baity thinks about having a service dog certification.

What is Semper K9?

After leaving his service in the Marines, Chris found a way to continue working with dogs and serve the community. Chris’s nonprofit, Semper K9, takes shelter dogs and trains them to provide free service dogs to veterans and their families. This valuable program is not only saving shelter dogs but changing the lives of veterans who really need it. Chris and Semper K9 were even recently featured on Mike Rowe’s program, Returning the Favor. Listen to this episode to hear his thoughts on being surprised by being featured on the show and by meeting the blue-collar philosopher.
