GDA 2: Don’t Dominate – Communicate with Sarah Hodgson

I’m joined by fellow dog trainer and author Sarah Hodgson in a discussion all about dog dominance. There’s no other topic in the dog training world more misunderstood and controversial, and Sarah and I sit down and hash out exactly what dominance means and how it pertains to your and your pooch.

We share our own personal stories and training philosophies when it comes to dog dominance and shed some much needed light on this often misused term. 

Here’s some of the things you’ll learn:

  • Why there is so much confusion about what dominance is
  • Why it’s okay to sometimes let your dog dominate you
  • The mindset shift that can really impact your dog
  • How to really teach your dog what you want
