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.

Good Dogs! (11-09-2015) #6043: Gayle Watkins from Avidog explains what an OFA clearance means about a dog’s joint and bone health and how the non-profit Orthopedic Foundation for Animals has developed a way for breeders to choose the healthiest animals to reproduce and how puppy buyers can understand and double-check how the parent dogs’ clearances should affect their offspring.
