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!
Kayla grew up in northern Wisconsin and studied ecology and animal behavior at Colorado College. She founded Journey Dog Training in 2013 to provide high-quality and affordable dog behavior advice. She’s an avid adventurer and has driven much of the Pan-American Highway with her border collie Barley. She now travels the US in a 2006 Sprinter with her two border collies, Barley and Niffler. Aside from running Journey Dog Training, Kayla also runs the nonprofit K9 Conservationists, where she and the dogs work as conservation detection dog teams.
