Training is a huge part of keeping pets happy safe and home for the rest of their lives. 1 in 10 rescued pups are rehomed in 6 months due to obedience issues, according to some studies, as high as 85% of dogs have behavior issues…and almost half of those issues are due to fear and anxiety. There’s been more research on dog behavior in the last 10 years than in the entire 20K years that humans and dogs have been hanging out together, so this episode sniffs around the subject of the science behind dog training. You’ve probably seen some famous dog trainers on mainstream TV or social media, but are they really using scientifically proven methods to help a dog learn to be a good canine citizen? And what exactly is behind your dog’s smelly behavior? All doggos can be very good boys or girls, and the problem is very often at the other end of the leash. Listen in as Lorien chats with Gentle Beast founder and CEO, Ben Green.
