I sat down to review an earlier podcast, but saw this one, and said to myself, “Eh, why not?” and thought I could listen passively over my morning cup. However, I ended up taking a full page of notes. Good episode, thanks.
thank you…looking forward to the episode on puppy enrichment when it comes!
Awesome!! Thank You so much! Very informative and Love that you have done this podcast.
Just love all these podcast. Thank you so much !
Loving your podcasts. I’ve started crate games and then will move on to Home School the Dog. We have a 10 week old puppy that I do think gets bored. What are some good puppy enrichment games? And where are they sold?
Well, that’ a absolutely right and knowing it can help 😊
But sometimes we are buried too deep in our own emotions/problems to see it clearly at the right time and afterward it’s more difficult because not only we have to re-build the good/right response but we have to deal with feeling guilty 🤷♀️
