Thriving people have more bandwidth to care for other beings, including dogs. This podcast isn't just about dogs, but it's in line with my mission to make the world safer and more pleasant for dogs.
Diamond members: thanks for helping to make this podcast possible! [Learn more about membership].
We start the conversations excavating gems of wisdom these experts in their field are keen to share (their life’s work) and then we will dig into the experience of the dog(s) in their lives.
I respond to any behavior questions that podcasts guests have and together we spark leaps of compassionate intuition, connecting the dots between how we help dogs thrive and how people can thrive, too.

I'm fascinated by animal behavior, somatic awareness, and psychology. I'm passionate about wholehearted living for all beings, including dogs with a history of aggression, frustration, or fear as well as puppies and my other favorite species: humans.
My Behavior Adjustment Training technique (BAT 2.0 and the new BAT 3.0) is used worldwide to help dogs gain confidence and social skills. A conservative calculation is that well over 200,000 people have learned about BAT so far.
I have always loved teaching. I earned a Master's in mathematics and taught college courses, but I found my true calling in dog training. I have been teaching dog training and behavior since 2003. In 2010, I started traveling worldwide to teach dog trainers about BAT. In 2014 I developed BAT 2.0 and also started my online dog training and behavior school, which now has over 100 classes from my favorite emotionally intelligent dog experts. My new podcast, The Lesson is Love launches in 2023.
As an outgoing introvert, I enjoy traveling to cooperative conferences and love teaching about dogs online. I refresh my batteries by savoring life in the woods with my husband (Tom), Labrador (Joey), cat (Garbanzo aka "Adventure Kitty" and "Baby Panther"), and Little Brown Dog (Zuki).
