The Bucket
1732

This week we discuss: The Bucket

This week’s topic is arguably the most important thing to understand about your dog. 

Understanding your dog’s bucket is crucial to being able to turn your dog training struggles into strengths. 

Exciting and scary things pay into the bucket on a daily basis. There’s only so much room and of course at some point, that bucket is likely going fill up and over flow, resulting in your dog displaying behaviours such as barking, lunging, biting, chasing..…to name a few.

What can you do to work with your dog’s bucket rather than against it?

This week we discuss: There’s a Game for That: Training Revolution

Over the decades dog training has gone through many revolutions and we are in the middle of one right now and we delve into this in this week’s podcast!

Over the last 10 years or so the revolution we have been seeing is a shift from punishment based training to rewards based methods. 

Now we are at a stage where a new revolution is really gathering pace! For sure there is a place for rewards, however we are now moving towards a real-life results driven way of training. Learn more on this by tuning into the podcast!

Big Dog vs Small Dog
1478

In a world full of distractions. There is one big question on every dog owners, lips. How do I become more than just the person holding the other end of the leash? We all get dogs with a dream in mind, a vision of the future, and if right now your everyday reality isn't quite that picture you had in mind, you are in the right place, it really doesn't have to be this way. You absolutely can and will be more to your dog and then just the person who gets in between them and the world. The key is you need to be more sexy, more sexy than the neighbourhood cat. More sexy, more sexy than that half eaten hamburger they just found on the floor. And yes. Even more sexy than the dog across the road. I'm Tom, I'm Lauren and together we are absolute dogs and you're listening to the sexier than a squirrel podcast.

Socialisation
1808

In this week’s podcast we discuss the ‘S’ word! It’s such a hot topic isn’t it! For us socialisation is all about building positive, calm associations in the face of distractions like other dogs that are oh so exciting, and to help with this, the number one concept that we tackle from day one is disengagement. 


Ensuring your puppy is having lots of good experiences is down to you by setting them up for success (training for the situation, not in the situation) controlling the controllable and knowing when and being OK with saying no as you know your puppy better than anyone else. Take a listen to the podcast for more on this!

This year at Crufts was the best ever competing year Lauren has ever had with any of her dogs EVER!

Lauren and Blink, her pocket rocket of a cocker spaniel, won two coveted events, saw whhaaaaaaat?

The Crufts Singles title and the Crufts Championship title. The competition is fierce, and it was no different this year! These events are where the top handlers from all over the world gather, therefore winning is huge! 

In fact, Lauren is still on cloud 9 should you need her, she will be there for a while. 

While she is up there we asked her a few questions on what it was like to win, what prep went into the event, how she trains her dog’s, for her words of advice and so much more!

Nicola, our guest interviewer phoned into the studio to interview Lauren so parts of the audio are not as clear as we would have liked but it is all still listenable and great quality advice.

Dog Dog Conversations

This week we discuss: DOG-DOG INTERACTION


It’s extremely common for dogs to have struggles when it comes to interacting with their own species. 


In this week’s podcast we jump into this hot topic and give you top tips on mindful observation; determining the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to dog-dog interaction and how to spot when things are going great and when to step in and what to do.


We chat about how one bad experience far outweighs 100 good ones when it comes to dog meet and greets, and why we think the best thing to teach your dog is that other dogs are great…...at a distance!

Do you know how to train for this situation, rather than in it?

We’ve got you covered! We unlock all of these answers and more in this week’s podcast.
