TOP 046: The Difficulties of Dog Training ft. Jessica O’Neill

Dog training is perhaps the most frustrating aspect of dog ownership. Whether you’re a first time owner or a seasoned pet parent, there are challenges that pop up during training that none of us expect. Many of us have sought help from the dog training isle of a pet store, only to find that there are countless products to choose from. How do you know which products actually work?

Jessica O’Neill had this same problem. She knows exactly what it’s like to be in this situation. And, unfortunately she couldn’t find anything that worked for her and her pooch. So, she did the next best thing – she created a dog harness that would help her train her canine companion. Jessica isn’t just an inventor; she’s also a highly qualified dog trainer.

In this podcast episode she’s giving us some tips on how to work with our dogs to make training as easy as possible. She’s got some great tips about understanding your dog and helping him understand what your expectations are. In the words of Jessica, “It’s not how your dog behaves that determines if you are a good dog owner, but how you respond to your dog’s behavior that counts.”
