SDOS Episode 34 – Recalls and Relationships with Kamal Fernandez

SHDOS Episode 34

Episode 34 – Today Dom is joined by dog trainer extraordinaire Kamal Fernandez. Kamal talks to me about how the brow beat his parents into getting him a dog and his embarrassing dog training moment. How he got the agility bug but almost didn’t make it to the class because he had the wrong address. He also shares some dog training gems like, why you need to keep investing in your dog’s recall bank account, why dogs are such powerful teachers and he tells me what he favourite training games are. If you have a dog who is more interested in every dog, bird or squirrel he sees than he is in coming back to you then this episode is a must watch! Oh and this was last podcast shot in our old house so dear old Barry the Bordeaux makes a little appearance.
