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! (with Avidog)

Good Dogs! (01-12-2015) #6035: Avidog co-owner and multi-champion Golden Retriever breeder Gayle Watkins, talks about the challenges of walking a dog in a group, and describers her experiences at a recent Golden Retriever specialty show. “If you cannot get obedient behavior at home, you sure won’t get it in a setting like that!” On leash walking recommendations — throw away the extendable leash (that only teaches bad behavior while wrapping around peoples’ ankles)  and get a Walk in Sync harness with leash that shows you and your dog how to walk nicely in a group.
