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

Rehabilitating Extremely Fearful Dogs

Good Dogs! (12-19-2016) #6064: Kristen Collins is head of the ASPCA Rehab Center and featured in the new ASPCA documentary “Second Chance Dogs,” now available on Netflix. The film follows six extremely fearful rescued Malamutes taken to the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center (the first and only facility dedicated to rehabilitating dogs suffering from severe fear due to puppy mills, hoarding, and other cruelty) and we watch how using “helper dogs” (all treatments are done with pairs of dogs) can make “miracles” happen. If you’re interested in being part of this exciting and rewarding project, the Rehab Center is always seeking more volunteers.
