When talking about puppies, we are typically focusing on socialization, training and exposing them to the world in a safe way. But an equally important, if not more so, part of the equation is napping. Our puppies need lots of opportunities to nap so that they can properly process all that we are teaching them, all they are learning and to help them grow! We discuss the importance of puppy naps in this episode.
When it comes to our dogs, it is our job to help them be prepared for what they may experience throughout their lives. This is especially important when it comes to sudden medical procedures! We don't want our dogs stressing needlessly when they need to be concentrating on healing.
In this podcast, we discuss the need to prepare our dogs, through training, to accepting and even enjoying such things as the "cone of shame", crates and more. We discuss the importance of incorporating this type of training for ALL dogs.

Maybe your dog chews your shoes, or gets into the garbage or goes potty in the house. You reach out to a professional trainer or instructor and implore for them to give you a training solution and stat! However, many of these problems can be solved, or greatly improved, by simply using good management techniques.
