Dismissing “Unkind” Puppy Training Myths & Methodologies

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (05-18-2019) #623: Featuring Linda Case, Tabitha Bell, and Kelsea Brown. Linda Case, the author of DOG SMART: EVIDENCE-BASED TRAINING WITH THE SCIENCE DOG, dismisses “unkind” training myths and methodologies like forcing dogs to use a crates, or bad advice like not to comfort an anxious dog; Stanford student Tabitha Bell won a 2018 Gloria Barron Prize for being an inspiring, public-spirited young person. Her PawsitivePawsibilities.org raises funds to provide service dogs, free of charge, for people with physical disabilities like hers, (a debilitating form of Muscular Dystrophy that she developed in fourth grade); Kelsea Brown is a PhD candidate whose doctoral thesis evaluates the validity of various current methods for studying canine sociability.
