Rank #3: Episode 11: Embarrassed: We Got a Handful

Podcast cover

Join Elizabeth of Telltail Dog and Dawn of Odin_Pup (https://www.instagram.com/odin_pup/) for a look into the handful that is Odin. Dawn's familiar with being severely embarrassed by her dog -- and she's a dog trainer. Tools and methods mentioned in the podcast are linked below through the blog post.

Excerpt:
Odin's personality continued to emerge, and Dawn and Mark weren’t sure they’d be able to keep him. “I would say that there’s probably a lot of reactive dog owners who feel that they have the wrong dog,” Dawn said. “And I would say that they probably don’t, they just haven’t figured out the language yet, but at the same time, I’ve been there. I felt the same way. We were worried that if we couldn’t figure it out, we’d have to find Odin a new home because we weren’t the right home for him."

Then Odin scared Mark, who had been bitten by a dog the year before. Odin latched onto his arm, tugging. “We thought it was aggression,” Dawn said. “I was like, ‘Oh my god, we have to go put this dog down because he just bit my husband.’ Turns out, he had literally no idea what to do with his mouth. He was so overstimulated and he’s a reactive dog who was like, ‘Oh we’re playing tug now? Let’s play tug REALLY HARD.’"

They had some hard discussions and then reached out to Dana Falsetta, a close friend of Mark’s and a dog trainer and then a manager with Philly Unleashed. “She fielded a lot of phone calls from us at 10, 11 o’clock at night in tears, because we just didn’t know what to do,” Dawn shared. “I wasn’t a trainer yet. I had no idea. I was reading all of the books, reading all of the articles. It was a very intense year.”

Rank #4: Episode 10: You Deserve a Nice Trainer

Podcast cover
Read more

It all comes down to methods, personality, and certifications. You deserve a nice trainer, and I view a nice trainer as:
Actively listening. This means asking questions and hearing you without jumping to respond.
Acknowledging the good things you’ve done with your dog and the hard work that you’ve put in so far.
Finding a method that works for you and your dog.
Explaining what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, and showing you how to do it.
Exercising appropriate boundaries.

Join Elizabeth of Telltail Dog and Lauren of Empath_N_Drake (https://www.instagram.com/empath_n_drake/) for a candid discussion on reactivity, repression, and training methods. Lauren tried everything after her pitbull Drake developed reactive behaviors when he was seven months old.

Excerpt:
Previously, when he looked at another dog, he’d get a correction because a look would lead to a reaction. If he was tense walking down the hallway, he was supposed to get a correction. If he was on edge at all, he’d get a correction. “He was constantly being stimmed,” Lauren shared. “It was so unfair. … It felt like we were constantly in conflict.”

Now, she tries to honor him and work on building him up. When he looks at another dog, she can tell if it’s curiosity or about to lead to a reaction. By inviting him to look at her instead, she can let him know he’s safe.

Lauren also manages Drake’s behavior by:

Excerpt:
It’s tempting to be embarrassed about that, too. My dog isn’t a "cool dog". He’s a dog with a distinct personality and likes and dislikes. He’s growled at people for picking him up. Also embarrassing. But he’s never growled at me for picking him up, and we have a special cue for it when I do. Everyone else has done it without his permission, and he let them know.

It can feel particularly embarrassing when:

  • Your dog is particular about other dogs or doesn’t like other dogs or
  • Your dog doesn’t like all people or most people or
  • Your dog has triggers that have to be managed.

I get all of that. I’ve experienced it with not only Jeeves, but with other dogs I’ve lived with. He’s the one that taught me that I need to advocate for him. If I had told the people not to pick him up, he wouldn’t have had to use his voice to do it. He doesn’t have to be okay with just anyone grabbing him.

Podcast cover
Read more

Things over here at Telltail Dog Training in Little Rock have been mostly at a standstill, but I've been able to work on some cool things despite social distancing. After a consulting project with CARE for Animals, I decided to do a fundraiser for them AND launch a rescue series I'd been working on for a pet magazine.

The rescue series will start next week, featuring rescuers from around the state.

For now, I have ten spots available for $10 each. To reserve, go to https://www.paypal.com/fundraiser/charity/120000 and select "Other." Send me the confirmation through email at Info@telltaildogtraining.com or text at 501-500-4685 by Monday, May 18, and within three business days, I'll send you a digital copy of your drawing. When it's safe to do so, the physical copies will be available at CARE in the Heights for you to pick up.

Rank #10: Episode 4: Call Your Veterinarian: Preparing for Quarantine with your Pet

Podcast cover
Read more

The pandemic sweeping the nation has brought dog training to a halt, as a lot of what we do can involve frequent contact with people. Instead, I, your host of Telltail Dog and a friendly central Arkansas dog trainer, Elizabeth Silverstein, decided to chat with Dr. Marlow Ball about what's going on at the moment and how to prepare if you do need to quarantine with your pets. This was recorded on Monday, and today's Thursday, and already things have changed.

Stay calm and call your veterinarian.
