Questions from the Crowd - Winter 2023 Pt 1

What to listen for:

“If you have a good reinforcement system, it really doesn't take long. And that reinforcement system is how you pay the dog for doing whatever work you're asking it to do. And you actually have to teach and learn how your dog likes to be reinforced.”

Whether it be Robin’s knee surgery or Crystal’s voiceless bout with a nasty cold, it’s been tough for all the Dames of Detection to unite for episode recordings these days. But that won’t stop them from bringing you value-packed episodes you’ve grown accustomed to hearing.

Today, Robin and Stacy answer listener questions on topics ranging from fun questions around accidental training, to new puppy strategies, nosework, verbal cues, and everything in between! Check it out, and don’t miss next week as they take on more questions in part 2!
