Listen as Susan Tyson, a puppy-raiser for Susquehanna Service Dogs in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, tells us how organizations like hers raise puppies for the specific purpose of working for the mentally or physically challenged—from who can get one and the length of the wait list to what the dogs can do and how the placement process works.
Ever wonder how service dogs are trained to do all the amazing things they do—like dialing emergency numbers, opening doors and calming their companions psychologically in the midst of crowded public places? From how long it takes to the unique training methods used, Susan Tyson, a puppy-raiser for Susquehanna Service Dogs in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, has your answers.
Bark Busters master dog behavioral therapist and trainer Rachel Baum lives in upstate New York, so she knows a thing or two about cold weather. Listen to find out how to protect your dog from dropping temperatures and snow, why his dietary needs may change in the winter, and what fun games you can play together indoors!
As adorable and irresistible as a puppy wrapped in a bow under the Christmas tree may seem, master dog behavioral therapist and trainer Rachel Baum of Bark Busters wants you to think twice before giving a pet as a holiday gift. She tells us why dogs should be specially chosen for each family, what challenges puppies can pose, and alternative gift ideas for those on your list who may be ready for a dog.
