By Dr. Sammy the Dog Trainer
Welcome to Sammy the Dog Trainer's pod cast on real life with dogs! I'm Sammy and I am a PhD student...I feel like I should attend meetings for my education addiction. Lucky for you I apply my schooling in my dog training methods to bring you educated methods, but also methods grounded in the real world. Because not everyone has a perfect robot dog. Let's talk about our not-perfect non-robot dogs and all their derpy, butt wiggling glory!

Why Does My Dog...? Part 2
We took some questions from our fans and supporters and made a podcast about them.  Unsurprisingly, most of the questions had to do with poop.  Dog poop.  Dog pooping behavior and why does my dog eat poop?  We also had a question about shoe chewing and circling before laying down, so it wasn't all talk about turds.   Get your Filterpal HD coupon: 20347DRS Check it out on Amazon!
