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 today's amazingly insightful episode, we're joined by rockstar Pro Dog Trainers and rescue dog experts, Michelle and Katrin. Together, we're delving deep into a topic that's dear to all our hearts – rescue dogs!
Drawing on their combined wealth of experience, Lauren, Michelle and Katrin share stories, tips, and invaluable insights gained from their years of working with these incredible canines. From the challenges of mismatched energy, and the transformative power of patience, to the invaluable understanding that comes from observing your dog's body language to learn their unique communication signals. Or tailoring activities to suit an individual dog’s needs.
They also share practical advice on building relationships with rescue dogs, including emphasis on the importance of ditching the bowl and investing in calmness. And, we can’t forget their crucial advice, asking us to reflect on whether our actions with our dogs are driven by their needs or our desires — “are you doing it for you or for your dog?”
All the super strategies and solutions in this episode are here to help you bring transformational understanding to the world of rescue dogs. But it's not just about understanding rescue dogs; it's about advocating for them too. We encourage all our listeners (that's YOU!) to embrace the rescue life by volunteering and supporting local rescue shelters, and sharing the love of Games Club with rescue dogs worldwide!
Tune in now for a powerful discussion that will reshape your perspective on rescue dogs, leaving you inspired to make a positive impact. And while you’re here, please leave a review for us and share your biggest lightbulb moment or inspirational takeaway message with us.
