My Dog Won’t Stop Eating Poop! Ep: #47

My dog won’t stop eating poop! We recently had a question come in from a guy who was really struggling with his dog eating poop. We see dogs gorge themselves on deer poop (shed dog caviar), but in his case it looks like ant poop is fair game. Jeremy walks you through what his suggestion to him was, and how we can take control of the situation to minimize this.

Why do dogs enjoy eating poop so much? We really don’t know, but whether it be picking up the dog poop that’s around the yard, or putting the dog on heel and taking control of the situation we are able to minimize and fade out this habit.

Stopping Dog from Jumping, Nipping, and Bitting: Establishing Yourself as the Leader | Ep: #45

Stopping dog from jumping, nipping, and bitting is a topic we have been getting a bunch of questions about as of late, so we decided to do a podcast on these issues! When dogs and/or puppies jump up on you, nip at your fingers, or even act aggressive towards you, they are showing dominance over you. This is an issue that needs to be fixed immediately, and that fix is to gain respect from that dog as well as establish yourself as the leader.

How do we go about doing this? Listen to episode #45 and start the road towards stopping  jumping, nipping, and bitting with your dog.

Deer Tracking Dog: Everything You Need To Know | Ep: #44

Deer tracking dog, it’s that time of the year. With the opening of deer hunting and the rut just around the corner, this is a hot topic that we receive a ton of questions on. So, we made this podcast covering just that.

A deer tracking dog, or game recovery dog, is the best way to either recover a marginally hit deer, or have confidence that the deer is in fact still alive. There are a ton of different advantages that a dog that tracks deer brings to the deer hunter.

The good news for hunters is that almost all dog breeds have the ability to track, it’s in their DNA. The even better news: you can train your dog to track deer, no matter the breed or age. It’s actually very simple, and is the best way to do everything you can as a hunter to recover your deer. DogBone offers you all the tools and information you need to succesfully train your own dog to track deer.

Retrieving a Bird (Big or Small, Dead or Alive) | Ep: #43

Retrieving a bird can prove to be a challenge for many dogs, and there are a number of problems that can very easily come up. In this episode we are answering questions we received via Facebook from followers that are having trouble getting their dogs to retrieve birds. From pulling feathers, blinking (just won’t pick it up), chomping and chewing, or running away with it. Jeremy walks you through what you need to do to fix these problems, and better yet, introduce birds the correct way.

Geese are an issue we see a-lot as well. Geese are big, heavy, and can be very intimidating to our little labs. Retrieving a bird, especially a giant Canada goose, can be overcome by just incrementally preparing your dog to have success. Find out how to overcome these obstacles in this episode of the DogBone podcast.

Upland Dogs: Our Recent Inspiration to Get in the Grouse Woods | Ep: #42

Upland dogs? Not something you hear us talk about very often, but it is something that has played a huge role in Jeremy’s childhood, and where he gained his love for training dogs. In-fact, it served as the base for his techniques when training a deer dog. As of late Jeremy has discovered an organization called Project Upland which has inspired him to get back into upland dogs, and possibly even acquiring a pointing dog down the road.

One takeaway that glares through in Jeremy’s recent grouse hunting adventures in northern Wisconsin is that our dogs do more than one thing. Jeremy’s personal dogs do upland, waterfowl, sheds, and game recovery, and so can yours! Alot of people get bogged down in the idea that a dog can only be trained for one thing and one thing only, but the reality is that these dogs can do much more for you with the right knowledge and effort on your part.

Follow along with this weeks episode to learn more about our grouse hunting strategies and adventures, project upland, and Jeremy’s future plans in regards to training a pointing dog.

Teaching a Dog to Heel: Common Questions and Mistakes We See | Ep: #40

Teaching a Dog to Heel, one of the most important elements of a dog’s foundation. In this episode we talk about a commonly asked question as well as a common solution to many training issues in the field: Heel work.  We’ve all seen the dogs out taking their owner for a walk (yes I said that right). You’d think they’re training for the Iditarod with the amount of pulling taking place! Or maybe there are other issues with control out in the field with placement or the dog becoming the leader instead of the handler. We must realize as trainers that in order to get really good at the “fun stuff” or hunting in the field, there HAS to be a a strong heel foundation.

Learn the how and why behind heel work in this episode, and also how to get started if you haven’t worked on it yet.
