Thank You!

I just picked up my new German Shepherd puppy in early April. I appreciate the ideas for getting her used to her new big world while also coping with the pandemic.The establishment now of a model of our future routine, the importance of her having some “alone time” and the importance of being comfortable at the veterinarians office were all great tips. Many thanks.

New puppy

I got a new puppy right before quarantine. This post cast has been a great resource for me. My beloved pup of 15 years passed away last spring so it’s been a long time since I’ve had a puppy. I loved the podcast series about loose leash walking. My 12 week puppy is doing great with it!

Great presentation, fun listening and super learning

I have really enjoyed listening and learning about positive reinforcement and how to apply it. I’ve been a volunteer trainer for several years and was getting stuck and not understanding what went wrong. Your podcasts have really opened my eyes and I am sharing what I have learned with my fellow volunteer trainers and pointing them to your podcasts. Thanks and keep up the good work 👍🏻

Incredible.

I have been listening to this podcast for he last three years. At first, because I was new to this type of training, I had to listen to some of the podcasts over and over and discuss them with my colleagues. But the more I listened, thought and shared, and applied the easier it became. You have helped me, my colleagues, and my dogs in more ways than I can express. I also think that your book is great, and though I don’t compete I do use many things out of your book to help my charges. I am very much looking forward to seeing you at Clicker Expo in Louisville KY (hopefully it will still be on next week)

A Must Listen To!

Are you curious about dog training? I am! I started listening to Hannah’s podcast about a year ago when I adopted my first dog and knew nothing about positive training. I’d only ever heard of traditional training and didn’t want to do that to my dog. Hannah makes the science accessible. She has helped me understand confusing concepts and shaped my training with my pup. She also has introduced me to so many new concepts via her guests. This podcast is a “Must Listen To” for me and I look forward to every new episode!

Feels like talking shop with your girlfriend.

I love this podcast. My absolute favorite dog training info, resource, rambling about my favorite subject. She's so real and smart but it's not stuffy, it's funny without being annoying to listen to other people laugh. I love her voice,she's so easy to understand and great audio quality. I listen and drink my wine before bed after a long day of dog training.

Podcast passion

Love your passion for training; it clearly shines through! I have learned so much through your podcasts; they motivate me to further research the concepts you address. I am happy to recommend you to fellow trainers, on the APDT member site, and on R+ FB pages. Best of luck with the book; please do a seminar in South Florida (maybe this winter? Lotsa sunshine and warmth here in January.... ;} )Kim Geisert Director of Day Trainingdynamitedogtraining.comDelray Beach, FL

This podcast is EXACTLY what I have been looking for

I discovered this podcast after purchasing Hannah’s book “Awesome Obedience” and I absolutely love it. Hannah does such a great job exploring topics that surround clicker training/R+ methods that every trainer finds themselves thinking about, and puts them into a very practical perspective. I am only 10 episodes in an have already found myself gaining a new understanding of some of the very “basic” principles that I have learned on my journey thus far. I SO wish that I had been a listener prior to my KPA professional program, I know that the new perspectives that I will acquire through this podcast would have been very valuable background as a KPA student. Thanks for putting out great content!!

Love love love

I love this podcast! She’s so smart but not snobby, and a REAL PERSON which I love. Love her sense of humor, and full of great info! I recently got a course on pet nutrition and although they are smart, the delivery is boring/snotty. I love learning from real people who can act authentic, which is exactly what Hannah is! Reinforcing her to create more episodes w 5 stars :) lolz

High-Value Reinforcer for Training Geeks

You'll laugh, you'll be inspired, you'll gain new perspectives, and you'll become a better trainer!Hannah's podcast brings everything a behavior geek could want: thought-provoking ideas, entertainment, heckin' realness, relatability, loads of diverse and science-based perspectives, and a good variety of geeky training topics. It's like having another behavior geek friend in the car with you! I have a positive CER to getting into my car for appointments since I started listening to this on my drives to my clients' homes.Hannah's (and her guests') ideas are so often immediately applicable to your own training. I learn something awesome and useful from every. single. episode. (I have a Masters degree in Clinical Animal Behavior plus other training quals, started as an amateur 20 years ago and went professional 12 years ago, if that helps you gauge how much ANYONE has to gain from listening.)Do yourself and your dogs (and your clients) a favor, and check out Drinking From the Toilet!

So much great education!

So much great information- thank you! Being so new to dog training much of the information is beyond my comprehension but I am working hard to understand more all the time - and the podcasts help so much! The Awesome Obedience book offers a clear, methodical training plan that I am taking my time with. The education you have given me access to is great and I always appreciate your encouragement and positive, realistic approach to both dog training and how it fits in our busy, demanding lives. I am now a dedicated fan! Thanks!

Dog geeks beware!

If you’re not looking for your next podcast addiction, don’t start listening 😉 Hannah is informative, funny, and down to earth. Even when she and her guests dive deep into things I never even pondered, I come away learning something new.

AMAZING podcast for behavior nerds!!

I can’t get enough of this podcast! Honestly, I’m glad I didn’t hear about it sooner because now I can binge-listen to half a dozen episodes a day! Thank you Hannah for making a place where behavior nerds can nerd out together, because I am pretty sure all the other people in my life are sick of hearing me toss technical terms like “rate of reinforcement” into every day conversations 😂
