The Origin of Bonds

Comment

The Origin of Bonds

Scholars have long believed in the origin of the canine/ human relationship to be that of human mastery and canine servitude. Theories/ stories abound that wolves scavenged the campfires of prehistoric man. Eating discarded food items from the outskirts of our caves or as some believe that man had captured young wolf pups and raised them to manipulate their very nature into serving our specific needs.

This episode we have naturalist and author Bernie Taylor to discuss a different view of domestic canine origins and to help us find more clarity in how our relationships developed over the last 40,000 years. Bernie is the author of Biological Time and Before Orion: Finding the Face of the Hero.

Natural Remedies

Big Pharma has done a great job diverting attention away from the natural world of remedies through their million dollar advertising campaigns, forcing their toxic chemicals down each and every concerned or ailing viewer. With each drug comes massive side effects. One more dangerous than the other.

Today we have on the show with us, Laura Schnecke, licensed veterinary technician and distributor of Young Living Essential Oils.

Training & Band-Aid Devices

Training & Band-Aid Devices

Training devices can be very useful and make training easier but I feel it is massively important to understand that these are not the solution! Using devices in-place of training will never yield the results you may be looking for and can cause both physical and mental harm to your dog in the long run. 

Accountability, effort and dedication to proper training is the only way to go.

"Don't blame the device for lack of effort."

A Genetic Look Into The Evolution of Canine Behavior

A Genetic Look Into The Evolution of Canine Behavior

What is domestication? The domestic dog dates back tens of thousands of years. However, there are no wild golden retrievers or Doberman Pinscher packs roaming the forests...so how did we get the German Shorthair pointer and Labrador Retriever from a Wolf or Coyote? The debate is still in the air today. Join us with special guest and personal friend of mine, Dr. Christos Suriano, to help us gain knowledge on past and current research and to discuss our own personal theories toward this discovery.

Understanding Trainers with guest Valerie Erwin

Understanding Trainers with guest Valerie Erwin

It’s absolutely wonderful when people research, read books, google methods and ask advice from friends and family. However, this can be a major hindrance towards success. If none of these avenues have satisfied your issues, and you reach out to a professional in the field. Please reserve your wealth of knowledge and open you mind to a different theory. Most techniques and methods have similarities on the surface but achieve different outcomes due to variations in application. Every dog is different, every environment is different, and every person is different. With understanding and dedication, you can reach the stars.

The Dangerous Foxtail

Comment

The Dangerous Foxtail

There are dangers all around us and its good to be aware of them. Sometimes the most dangerous things hide in plain sight. In this episode I share my personal encounter with the Foxtail plant. 

 The barbed seed heads of the Foxtail plant can work their way into any part of your dog, the nose, between the toes, inside the ears, eyes, and mouth. ...  The danger of Foxtail goes beyond simple irritation as it could embed and cause major infections, even blindness and deafness.

The Beautiful Bracco Italiano

Comment

The Beautiful Bracco Italiano

The Bracco Italiano has been called the oldest European pointer, and its history reaches back as far as the fourth or fifth century BC.

The Bracco, that’s B R A C C O, for all that have not heard of this breed, is a 55-88 pound hound looking pointer. If you haven’t heard of the breed you should definitely look it up online. Bracco’s make wonderful companions but require a lot of mental and physical stimulation. This breed is born to work the hunting fields. Their predatory drive is very high and they typically shine in the field. However, they require a bit of finesse with training. Traditional hunting methods tend to suppress the Bracco’s natural instincts.

This Episode of The Pack Animal Podcast I give a short story to support the trained hunting Bracco’s ability in the field with a scary test of nature!
