Rank #10: The Best Dog Training Devices and Tools with Danny Walker and Josh Wilson, Ep #10

Podcast cover
Read more
Episode 10 is all about training. On this episode, the guys discuss dog training devices and tools. Danny Walker is an aggression specialist with Off-Leash K9 and he joins The Dog Show to discuss all things dog training with Nick and Joe. They are ready to spread their knowledge by sharing their experience as dog trainers with their listeners. If you have been wanting to hear about dog training devices and tools, what works, and what doesn’t then this is the episode for you. Be sure to listen to this conversation as Joe, Nick, and Danny cover the four quadrants of dog training and the various tools used in the business.

What are the four quadrants of dog training?

Dog training is similar raising kids: you can use rewards and reprimands as tools to get desired behaviors. A great trainer makes sure to use the four quadrants to ensure a well-rounded training for each dog. The four quadrants are positive reinforcement, positive punishment, negative reinforcement and negative punishment. Positive means it adds something, negative means it takes something away. (By the way, negative does not mean beat your dog!) Positive reinforcement increases the likelihood that the behavior will happen again and punishment decreases the likelihood that the behavior will happen again. Listen to Nick clearly explain the four quadrants with a great analogy on this episode of The Dog Show.

Slip leads are important tools of the trade

Slip leads are wonderfully easy to use tools to really get control of a dog. If you’ll notice vets, animal shelters, and groomers all use slip leads to help keep dogs in their care under control and to minimize flight risks. For training purposes, you can use it subtly, and make small corrections. Slip leads use the least amount of intensity. The trick when using slip leads is not to choke the dog, to just make it snug. Doing this allows clear communication to the dog. As with any tool, there are downfalls. One is that people use slip leads without any education on how to effectively use them. Other downfalls are having bad timing or using the wrong size. This doesn’t allow for proper communication. Listen to the positives and negatives of slip leads on this episode of The Dog Show.

The prong collar gets a bad rap, but does it deserve it?

The prong collar has a bad reputation, but it can be a fantastic dog training device. The main issue with prong collars is sizing. Most dog owners have no idea how to shop for one. Important matters to consider with prong collars are placement, proper fit, and prong size. Prong collars help owners make small corrections with a subtle touch. Before using a prong collar it is important to educate yourself on how to use them. They are excellent dog training devices for sporting dogs. Listen to this episode of The Dog Show to hear more about dog training devices and tools.

Not all e-collars are created equal

The e-collar has been the center of controversy lately. This is a shame because used properly and purchased from a reputable company, e-collars are an incredibly effective training tool. One of the most important things to remember is to not settle for a cheap one. There is not a legitimate e-collar out there that you can buy for under $100. As with a prong collar a proper fit is key, if the collar is too loose it can cause chafing. 90% of the time owners will fit an e-collar too loose on their dog. Before using an e-collar or any training tool you need to be 100% sure that you are educated enough to use that dog training device. You’ll love hearing Joe as he puts an e-collar on Nick on this episode of The Dog Show. Listen to this episode to hear about the best dog training devices and tools.

Rank #15: The Differences Between Service Dogs and Emotional Support Dogs with Chris Baity, Ep #19

Podcast cover
Read more
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.
