DogBone Handler’s Workshops: What You Need To Know | Ep: #54

DogBone Handler’s Workshops are fast approaching, so we decided to make this podcast on everything you will need to know about the 2020 workshops.  We get so many questions about them; is my dog too old, too young, far enough along, allowed to come if it’s not a hunting dog…what are these DogBone handlers workshops all about anyway?  There’s such a special place on our hearts for all of the attendees. Watching everyone push boundaries, get outside of their comfort zone, build patience and understanding as handlers while taking away strong life lessons that pertain to so much more than raising a dog.

Following each workshop, our team ends up feeling like we gain as much, if not more, than those attending.  It’s not so much about the dogs at these workshops, it’s about the people.  Listen to this episode to find out why, as well as the dates and information about the upcoming 2020 DogBone Handler’s Workshops!

Bella… Be Good Update: Puppy Training Series | Ep: #53

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!

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.

Avoid Bad Habits Before They Form: Avoid Common Issues | Ep: #52

Avoid bad habits before they form is the key to raising a retriever. We have said time and time again that trying to train out bad habits is way harder to do than preventing them from ever forming. Our dogs are constantly forming habits, both good and bad. In this episode Jeremy answers a retrieving question that comes in, but then explains how to avoid the issues this person is facing before they ever happen, and how important it is to have an understanding of what not to do before you even get a puppy. Avoid bad habits before they form and keep good habits strong.

Training Shed Dogs: Match Your Training To Your Hunting | Ep: #51

Training shed dogs has many aspects to it, and there is a particular sequence we follow when training our shed dogs. We recently received a question about a guy whose dog would pick sheds flawlessly in training, but not in a real hunting scenario. He thought maybe the dog was searching for his scent instead of the antlers, but we feel there is a different issue. The key is to bridge the gap between training and hunting, and by matching your training style to your hunting style, this is done much easier

Training shed dogs is the topic for episode #51, and isn’t one you will want to miss!

Chew Toys and Our Dogs: Good or Bad? | Ep: #50

Chew toys and our dogs: good or bad? We recently received a Facebook question asking if it was a good idea to give a shed dog a shed to chew on, and hope that it sees it as a toy when they come across a shed in the wild. This is not a good idea, because chew toys promote chewing! Not only for shed dogs, but for all dogs. Chewing is a habit, and just like the good habits we are trying to form we can just as easily promote bad habits in our dog. Chew toys are a sure fire way to create a dog that chews on everything. The fix? No chew toys.

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.

The Biggest Problem We See: Don’t Rush Your Training | Ep: #46

Don’t rush your 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.

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.
