Welcome to this episode of the Sexier than a Squirrel podcast, the podcast that brings you real-life dog training results, and sometimes human training ones too!
In this exciting educational episode, we’re joined once again by rockstar Pro Dog Trainer, Sam, to dive into transformational troubleshooting tips for common training and behavior struggles for our lovable Naughty But Nice dogs all over the world!
At AbsoluteDogs, we love Naughty But Nice dogs. These are the dogs that tend to struggle with many things in life - things like confidence and optimism (they're a bit worried about life), the ability to disengage (they can't move away from what excited or worries them), independence (think SEPARATION struggles and velcro dogs!) and even calmness (they can't settle at home or seem to have TOO much energy)!
If you have a dog that has any kind of behaviour struggle, they are what we fondly refer to as NBN, or Naughty But Nice, dogs and in today’s episode, we’ve got NBN training transformation tips for you!

Sam doesn't stop there either! She dives deep into tips that go beyond the basics. From nailing reward strategies to games like mastering Disengagement Pattern, she’ll help you discover how to turn your NBN dog's recall into a burst of positive energy, leaving anxiety in the dust.
