What Do You Do With Your Dogs When You’re Not Training? | Ep: #82

What do you do with your dogs when you’re not training? This is a question we get asked very often, and many people think that all we do all day long is train dogs. In reality, we are just as busy, and live just as face paced lives as everyone else. We blend our dog training in with our lives, just like we blend our kids into our lives. The actual formal training sessions take up a extremely small portion of our day, so what do we do with the dogs the rest of the day?

Hold Conditioning: Paying Attention to the Details | Ep: #81

Hold conditioning questions have been coming in hot and heavy lately. On episode #81 of the pawdcast we are tackling these questions, and addressing some common mistakes we see with people struggling to get through hold conditioning. We recently had a guy send in a video of one of his sessions with his dog, and we thought it would be helpful to everyone to do a pod on analyzing his session. There are many instances where we do not realize subtle things we are doing until we step back and watch ourselves do it. Hopefully, our analyzation helps this guy to advance in his hold conditioning process, as well as anyone else out there struggling with it as well.

Fly Fishing For English Setters: Picking a Puppy | Ep: #80

Picking a puppy: In this episode we talk about our trip to Minnesota to visit Northwoods Bird Dogs and view their kennel, dogs, and meet Jay. You have probably heard Jeremy talk about what he does, and recommends, when looking for a puppy. Don’t choose the puppy, choose the litter. All of the aspects that go into picking the litter involve finding the right type of dog, breeder, and all that goes into it. In this podcast, we dive into our journey with finding the right breeder for a pointing dog. Also, we went fly fishing so we talk about that to.

The Importance of Reading Your Dog | Ep: #79

Reading your dog is one of the most crucial parts of training. If you can’t read your dog, everything else is thrown off. We talk a-lot about timing, whether it be the timing of corrections or maybe even more important, the timing of praise. Being able to read your dog helps you to determine your timing, which leads to getting your dog to understand what you are asking of them. Unfortunately, dogs don’t can’t speak our language verbally, so one of the most important aspects of training is reading your dog. In episode 79 of the podcast, we dive into just that.

Place Board Training: Live w/ Jay Lowry of Ryglen Gun Dogs | Ep: #77

The DogBone pawdcast takes a bit of a turn this week as we welcome special guest Jay Lowry to discuss a topic we have been particularly interested in lately; place board training. Throughout this conversation we tackle a number of big dog training topics, as well as an in depth discussion of how Jay uses place board training to overcome a lot of problems, and to train in many good habits with his cocker spaniels. We are going to be doing this with Bella shortly, which you will see if you follow the Bella Be Good series on our youtube channel. There are many different training styles, and having an understanding of as many of them as you can is how you will figure out what works for you and your dog. This leads us to talking about a large array of training aspects, and made for a great and informative podcast! We hope you enjoy it, and hope that you find episode #77 of the podcast to be full of dog training value!

Time Doesn’t Matter: Dog Training and the Calendar | Ep: #76

Time doesn’t matter in training: It’s a problem we see come up time and time again. Many fixes for problems people are experiencing take time and consistency, and neither of those can be rushed. Dog training in general is a marathon, and almost every aspect of dog training needs patience, repetition, and consistency. Stop comparing your progress with your dog to others, every dog is different, and every dog develops in different time frames. The more you watch the clock, worry about where you should be at this age and where you’re not, and try to rush and force training to catch up, the slower your training will go.

As Jeremy often says, “The best way to speed up dog training is by slowing down”.

Bella Update: We Are Beginning Hold Conditioning | Ep: #75

Bella be good update! We are very excited to continue with this puppy training series with Bella, and thought it was necessary that we share with you some of our struggles, successes, and where we are at with this little gun dog’s training. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the series on our dogbonehunter youtube channel to follow along with us!

Hold conditioning training is beginning with our little gun dog. In this episode of the podcast, we are going to discuss why, how, and where we will start with the hold conditioning training process.

As we take each session day by day, we look back on where we started to where we are now with Bella. Jeremy finds himself judging our progress by Bella’s age, which is something he has preached time and time again on not to do. Time doesn’t matter when it comes to dog training, and even Jeremy has to remind himself of that sometimes.

Nobody Wants to Play with a Ball Hog: Everything Puppy Retrieves | Ep: #74

In this episode of the podcast, we are talking puppy retrieves! We have recently gotten a number of questions pertaining to how, when, and where we begin to build retrieve with young puppies, as well as older dogs that ares struggling to retrieve. We often get videos in of guys that are struggling with getting their puppies to retrieve, and it doesn’t look very fun for the dog, or the handler. One of the most important parts of getting a dog to like to retrieve is having it turn into a fun game, especially when they are young. In this episode of the podcast, we walk you through how to do just that!
