Good Dogs! ™

Empowering breeders and owners to raise stable, healthy, well-mannered puppies that enrich people’s lives. Do you wish your dog was better behaved? This show will help you give the right beginning to a young dog and improve an older dog's behavior, too — featuring the wisdom of three veteran trainers, Gayle Watkins, Lise Pratt and Marcy Burke — who will take turns co-hosting. They have also spent decades breeding and competing healthy performance Golden Retrievers — and created Avidog, a system to help breeders and new puppy owners raise well-behaved companions.

Hosted by Tracie Hotchner, Gayle Watkins, Lise Pratt, Marcy Burke

Good Dogs! (02-02-2015) #6037: Lise Pratt from Avidog talks about “coming when called” and how some dogs are genetically wired to respond. Tracie asks about the confusion about whether giving a treat during training is “bribery” or a “reward” — and Lise explains how the difference is actually defined by the timing of the treat.
