Description

These pet podcasts are all about dogs! We’ll talk about dogs large, small and in between; purebred dogs, designer dogs and mixed breeds. When we discuss breeds and mixes, we’ll take a look at what constitutes a breed or a mix; and the traits of some specific breeds. We’ll also take a look at how you can choose the right breed and dog for your family. We will also talk about the joys (and hassles) of living with a dog because when we share our lives with dogs, we are bringing another species into our home and there are often misunderstandings and miscommunications... on Pet Life Radio.

It's A Doggy Dog World Episode 175 Management and/or Training?
35:05
As much as Liz, Petra, and Kate are enthusiastic about dog training, there is no dog-training magic wand. Training cannot and never will solve all dog behavior issues. Sometimes managing the dog and the behavior is a better idea.

It's A Doggy Dog World Episode 173 Your Emotions and Your Dog
31:36
Most dog owners have recognized that their dog responds when the owner is sad or upset and it's wonderful when that aware dog tries to make us feel better. But there is more to this than just that. When raising a puppy it's especially important to be aware of your emotions as puppies are just little balls of emotion anyway. Then, too, when training your dog your emotions can help you or hinder your efforts. Liz, Petra, and Kate talk about emotions and your dog so tune in.<br /> <br /> <b>EPISODE NOTES: </b> <a href="http://www.petliferadio.com/dogep173.html"> Your Emotions and Your Dog on Pet Life Radio</a><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Petliferadiocom-ItsADoggyDogWorld/~4/8_cNgeMuS8M" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

It's A Doggy Dog World Episode 172 Two Means Double the Trouble
31:38
Some puppy owners bring home two puppies thinking that they will amuse each other, perhaps keep each other out of trouble, and free the family from some of the burdens of puppy raising. Unfortunately this is incorrect. Two puppies at the same time is a big problem, so much so that there has been a lot written about it. Listen in as Liz, Petra, and Kate discuss double the trouble.<br /> <br /> <b>EPISODE NOTES: </b> <a href="http://www.petliferadio.com/dogep172.html"> Two Means Double the Trouble on Pet Life Radio</a><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Petliferadiocom-ItsADoggyDogWorld/~4/R0RxJJJLfjs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

It's A Doggy Dog World Episode 171 Dog Training: Be Creative
40:22
Liz, Petra, and Kate discuss creativity in dog training. This doesn't mean you have to teach your dog to paint (although that might be fun!) but instead, creativity can help prevent boredom, both for yourself and your dog. Creativity can also get your dog more involved in his own training. <br /> <br /> <b>EPISODE NOTES: </b> <a href="http://www.petliferadio.com/dogep171.html"> Dog Training: Be Creative on Pet Life Radio</a><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Petliferadiocom-ItsADoggyDogWorld/~4/zFYN_e7OVAA" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Spring is an great time to get ready for summer's challenges. Just as we check our smoke and CO2 alarms when time changes we can check a few other things.

It's A Doggy Dog World Episode 158 Adolescence Re-Visited

At the same time, 100 dogs from Texas were landing in San Diego to make room in Texas shelters for dogs rescued from Hurricane Harvey.

It's A Doggy Dog World Episode 151 Ban the Act not the Breed
36:09
Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) continues to grow even though it's been shown not to work. Overall, it doesn't lessen overall dog bites in any community where it's been instituted. Plus, once one breed has been banned, it's easy for the legislative body to add one or more breeds. And if you think you're breed won't be banned, think again!

28:34
Oppositional reflex is a commonly used term that refers to the actions of your dog when pressure is applied. A good example is when your dog pulls hard on the leash as you're acting as an anchor. The word reflex isn't appropriate for these actions though as it truly isn't a reflex.

It's A Doggy Dog World Episode 140 Know the Breed Well
34:22
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." <br /> <br /> Questions or Comments?

Several weeks ago the Saturday classes at Kindred Spirits Dog Training in Vista, CA was rained out. As all the trainers waited at the training yard to see if the rain would let up, they all got talking about their dogs. Out of that discussion grew a book idea. Hence, "The Legends of Wild Dog Junction." In this podcast, Kate will read Liz's literary efforts, which includes the cast of characters (all based on the trainers' dogs), and half of the first chapter. If this sounds like fun to you, go to www.kindredspiritsk9.com for the complete first chapter, more about the book, and how to download subsequent chapters.<br /> <br /> More details on this episode <a href="http://www.petliferadio.com/dogep83.html"> MP3 Podcast - It's A Doggy Dog World - The Legends of Wild Dog Junction on PetLifeRadio.com</a><br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.kqzyfj.com/click-3844468-10792954" target="_top"> <img src="http://www.ftjcfx.com/image-3844468-10792954" width="468" height="60" alt="Save on ALL Costumes at Halloween Express" border="0"/></a><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Petliferadiocom-ItsADoggyDogWorld/~4/xaRL8_Qtz2I" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Many puppy owners don't realize that puppies don't automatically grow out of bad behaviors. Growing up doesn't automatically turn a puppy into a good dog.

Liz, Kate and Petra talk about what mixed breeds are, and the pros and cons of these designer dogs (or: mixed breeds). <br /> <br /> More details on this episode <a href="http://www.markiac.addr.com/PET_LIFE_RADIO/dogep64.html"> MP3 Podcast - It's A Doggy Dog World - Oodles, Doodles, and Poos! with Liz Palika on PetLifeRadio.com</a><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Petliferadiocom-ItsADoggyDogWorld/~4/XVzGh8maLtI" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Socialization is vital for good mental health for your puppy as he grows up. Researchers and behaviorists know that isolated puppies do not grow up to be well adjusted adults - that socialization period between 10 and 16 weeks of age is vital. However, veterinarians routinely recommend that puppies be kept home until they have completed their vaccinations - which puts most puppies at five to six months age - way past that window of socialization.
