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.

Treating Extreme Separation Anxiety

Good Dogs! (08-03-2015) #6044: You think your dog has separation anxiety issues?! What if you had three dogs going berserk when you left the house — even if only to take out the garbage? Marcy of Avidog comes to the rescue to suggest how Jessica can begin to turn down the emotional volume with her three rescued dogs: Felix (German Short-Haired Pointer), Bailey (American Eskimo dog) and little Charlie (Yorkshire Terrier). First order of business: visit a board certified veterinary behaviorist to discuss what medications she might use short-term, so that she can begin to change the scenario about her departures.
