Training Without Conflict® Podcast Episode Fourteen: Michael Shikashio Recently, Ivan invited Michael Shikashio to the TWC podcast. Michael and Ivan may hold at times different opinions on dog training. However, they had a great, respectful conversation that explored these views and ideas. Is it possible to bring the dog training communities together, rather than increase the polarization? Both Ivan and Michael recognize that there are those on the far extremes of the dog training spectrum who are immovable in their ideologies, but they also are certain that there are the trainers in the middle who have the most to gain from such conversations. We hope that this podcast will encourage dog trainers on both sides to continue to talk with each other. Sharing knowledge and experience is how we advance – not by looking down on each other, and certainly not through legislations or bans. Here are some links to videos discussed in the podcast: https://youtu.be/9B-gt0aEtYw Michael Shikashio, CDBC, is the founder of AggressiveDog.com and focuses on teaching other professionals from around the world on how to successfully work aggression cases.
