Training Without Conflict® Podcast Episode Sixteen: Mia Skogster Recently, Mia visited us in Florida for 4 weeks to teach a seminar and have some great training with me and my team. We had an absolutely amazing conversation about our history in IGP, thoughts on Malinois breeding and selection, how our training approaches differ, the current state of IGP, how the dog training community needs to unite for the betterment of all dogs, and many other incredible topics. Mia is one of the most decorated trainers in IGP dog sport, having won 2 World Championships, 2 Vice World Championships, and has been on the podium at the World Championships 6 total times. Mia frequently get V scores (over 97 points) in obedience in World Championship competition, and is one of the extremely rare trainers that has received a perfect 100 points for obedience at the World Championship level. To say Mia is a great trainer is an understatement. She also teaches seminars around the world, has an online learning platform (Inspire Ur Dog), and recently released a book that is going to be released in English in the very near future. The reasons for having Mia on the podcast are obvious. I hope you enjoy this podcast as much as we enjoyed the conversation!
