Re: Episode 304 - Bad to the Bone (Jan 29)

I think there are a lot of different opinions on this show - and that's awesome. For every person that seems to hate it, another three are loving it. Unfortunately, you don't hear as much feedback from those that love it. Those that hate it have NO problem saying how they feel, no matter how hatefu...

Re: Episode 304 - Bad to the Bone (Jan 29)

How do you decide when it is time for medication? How do you know when a dog is too hypervigilant, insecure, and unsettled? How can you tell what can be fixed by training and what requires additional assistance? If the dog is not responsding to training after a month or so and is still anxious and ...

Re: Episode 305 - Rocky Road - (Feb 5)

Interesting show. It really drove home the concept that dogs need enrichment in their lives, as well as a structured stable daily life. Are Wheaten terriers prone to OCD, or was it just this individual? I think any dog would be stressed with that amount of turmoil in the home. I'm glad you were abl...

Re: Episode 305 - Rocky Road - (Feb 5)

I just want to thank you for such a great show, I've taken the advice you've given others and the results are fantastic. Although my counter surfing beagle is another story. But she's only 23 lbs not 50 lbs like the one who had to go to fat camp. I wish you all the best and hope the show continues ...

Re: Episode 305 - Rocky Road - (Feb 5)

It must be frustrationg to deal with people that want an instant fix for their dog(s) rather than working to understand and help them. I was happy to see the family finally stepped up to the plate to make an effort to exercise and work with their dog. How long does it take for you to analyze the do...

Re: Episode 305 - Rocky Road - (Feb 5)

Loved the show last night. Did Dr. Dodman write a prescription to curb the spinning? I would have thought he did so your training would be effective? But then again -maybe by making sure he got exercised everyday - it stopped on it's own? (I don't think so though?) Love your show. Yes he did in con...

Re: Episode 301 - Menace to High Society (Jan 8)

Victoria, I have two questions if you don't mind. :) 1) I've heard that growls are communication and should be listened to, that sometimes it would be best to avoid what the triggers the threatening snap/growl so I was surprised (and slightly worried) that you stood near Ginger's bed when she snapp...

Hi Victoria, I'm ten years old and I'm one of your biggest fans. I never miss any of your new episodes on Saturday night. I loved the singing pug that sang I love you. Was it hard to train ginger?

Re: Episode 301 - Menace to High Society (Jan 8)

how can you help a fearful dog to become more social? Should they go places like petcos, petsmarts and parks to interact with people or is it best to keep them away from people? thanks A great resource for this problem is Nicole Wilde's book, 'Help for Your Fearful Dog - A Step by Step Guide to Hel...

Re: Episode 301 - Menace to High Society (Jan 8)

I have not seen the episode yet. But I can't wait to see it! From what I have read, it looks like a lot of fans/viewers have a lot of negative feedback about dog owner Jill. I think it must be hard to watch someone not appear serious, and clueless about dogs, and have someone who knows tons about t...

Re: Episode 301 - Menace to High Society (Jan 8)
