Almost everyone who gets a puppy or thinks of getting one has this idea that puppies are so cute, if they get one their lives would be a lot better and they can also be healthier. That could happen, but not in all cases. So if you’re one of the people who have this idealistic, well think again. Some dogs develop behavior problems as they grow, some when they reach adolescence, some as a result of incorrect training. With that said, it is essential that dog owners educate themselves in order deal and correct the dog’s behavior. As I said in many of my past podcasts, the training of your dog starts from the time you bring him home up to forever, until the time he lasts with you.

For this week’s episode, I invited Kari Neumeyer who is a member of “The Great Adventure Club.” One of the greatest things I see with the club is that members are able to interact more, ask questions and tell their stories in a way all the other members of the group learn.  Kari just got her first book published which is about her dog, her story, her learnings and mistakes in training her dog. Hope this helps you in dealing with your pooch.
