Nannette Morgan, California trainer, returns to The Doghouse today to talk about Siberian Huskies. She talks about the sport of mushing and the Alaskan Ididarod races. Nannette explains how to effectively train Huskies, but also mentions some of the challenges owners face when living with this intelligent breed.
Renee gives instructions to listeners about how to actually set rules and boundaries for dogs in the home. She explains how to deal with dogs when they rudely demand out attention. Renee also asked for call-ins and wanted to know how people feel about Michael Vick wanting to get a dog for his daughter. The caller certainly expressed his opinion!
Renee chats with Lucy Kennedy about Pugs. They discuss what it’s like to live with these sweet and loving little dogs and what their needs are. Lucy is very involved in Pug rescue. She explains the main reason Pugs wind up in rescue and how people can prevent problems when they live with these dogs.
Today Renee talks to Linda Case, creator of The Dog Talk Project. Linda has a website where dog owners can take surveys about all sorts of topics relating to their relationship with their dogs. The results of many of these surveys are very interesting, not only for pet parents but for trainers, vets and other professionals in this field.
