Dog Training DisrUPted - UPWARD Dogology

Welcome!  In this episode I refer to the studies by Dr. Kathy Murphy, owner of Barking Brains, and a neuroscientist who specializes in brain development in respect to behaviors and the success (or lack there of) of training methods in different life stages.

This episode focuses on the adolescent stage, describing brain development and how it effects behaviors. There are a lot of comparisons to teenagers!

The adolescent stage is where I have devoted my three decades of study and work to, and where Canine CBT is particularly effective.  Find out why based on neuroscience!
