Canine Nation - A Positively Scientific Look At Dogs and Dog Behavior Canine Nation is about discovery. It’s about getting to what is TRUE about dogs and discarding the myth and lore of living and working with dogs. It’s about challenging what we think we know and asking the dogs to tell us what’s real. It’s about giving science, scientific method, and collected data more credibility than hearsay, anecdotes, and the assertions of self-proclaimed dog 'experts.' Canine Nation started as a way to explore the common issues and ideas about dogs and dog training through short, informative essays. The podcast presents these ideas from the personal experiences of dog owners and the creative solutions they have found in behavioral science and positive training methods. Canine Nation brings the worlds of science and dog ownership together to help promote understanding and satisfying relationships between dogs and their people.

The Dog Show #358 - January 6, 2016 Why are the two-legged members involved in dog training and behavior conversations so polarized about whether or not you should tell your dog "No"? Given people are talking about it, not dogs, perhaps looking into some human psychology around our relationships with being praised and being told/saying "No" would be valuable to help us understand this topic, and ultimately - AGREE! In today's show, Julie Forbes references two articles that address these very topics - about humans!

Before you add a dog to your family, take a look at both the breed's ancestral occupation and it's occupation today. As dog trainers, far too often Liz, Petra and Kate see frustrated owners and unhappy dogs because the dog's breed (or its occupation) didn't fit in with that particular family's lifestyle. As Liz explains, "I have active herding dogs who want to be on the go and do something because I like that. But if a family is looking for a more laid back dog, my breeds of choice would be extremely frustrating to them." Questions or Comments? Email Liz at: firstname.lastname@example.org More details on this episode MP3 Podcast - Know the Breed Well on Pet Life Radio

No matter how much we know or how much we try there will still always be a gap between us and our dogs. We just can’t completely communicate with them because we are two very different species. Unfortunately this can hold us back from being able to help them through some of their issues. Lucky for us there are some furry helpers available to us that can come to the rescue that can help dogs having some difficulty feel more confident but also make huge impacts in improving the situation. There’s just no one better to communicate and aid a dog like another dog. Dogs are social animals and thrive when they are with others of their own kind.
