Join Marissa, Ursa, and Kayla as they discuss dog training myths including:
- Comforting a scared dog teaches the dog to be scared
- A single dog training class is all the obedience/training your dog needs
- Feeding your dog human food teaches them to beg
- Shock collars don’t hurt
Marissa also had a special announcement: she is leaving the podcast to start her own podcast, all about dog-human relationships. We’ll miss her and hope to have her back as a frequent guest!
