Episode 835 – Major Biden and the Emotional Sink
Major Biden is in the news again after a second ‘nipping’ incident that occurred in the White House. Having spent some time back in his home in Delaware to decompress and receive some training after the first nipping incident, Major and Champ returned to the White House. But a week or so later the spotlight is on Major again after another incident. What can be done to help him adapt to his new life and why is obedience training not the answer?
Veterinary Behaviorist Sarah Heath joins Victoria to discuss how dogs’ emotional needs must come first when devising teaching programs to help them acclimate to overwhelming situations and environments.
