What motivates a dog to dig themselves out from under the fence, or jump over it, or destroy a barrier to run off? Is he being lonely, or unhappy in the place he lives? Is he driven by a sense of adventure? Is he driven by an urge to run, hunt or explore?

Join Charlie and Suzy in the exploration of what created this situation and what if there are possibilities to change it. What contribution can we be to the dog that likes to run off? What can motivate him to stay home?

Have you ever noticed that your pet is extremely aware of your mood? The response to our moods will vary with each animal. A shy animal might hide weather you are happy or sad. Another might get very playful and celebrate your happiness with you, or approach you to change your sadness. Either way, there will always be a response to your state of mind. If you are a person that is guarded all the time, your pet will also be guarding.
What tools are available to be more in charge of these moments?
Can we fool our pets? Fake it til we make it?

Charlie does not like cats. Why? Let’s ask him during this show where we talk about the fun and difference cats are! We will tune into them as well, so we do not just get Charlie’s point of view on the pets that know that they rule the house! Or better, the world! We all know cats and dogs are so different and we even define ourselves as cat or dog people! So what fun can we have asking them about using our furniture for scratching posts, bringing us dead or almost dead critters as gifts and peeing on our belongings.
We are told that cats and dogs do not get along because their body language is so different and the cues of a ‘wagging tail’ from a cat can end in scratch marks on a dog’s nose. Is that what is going on? let’s find out from these critters themselves and also from Charlie!
Everyone you ask has a different opinion about what a good dog is. To me it would be a dog that has some basic etiquette about interacting with others, responding to simple commands and happy to be with me. For others it’s about loyalty, protection and the fact that the dog will not talk back when asked t do things. And there are tons more opinions depending who you ask!
Here is a fun read by a dog trainer exploring the issue!
So what is it that works for you? And what works for your dog? And will the two be able to work together?
What is relevant? Important? And how does Charlie see all of this? Would he have a point of view about what makes a good person? Let’s find out!
