Training Without Conflict® Podcast Episode Seventeen: Susan Garrett A few weeks ago I released a podcast challenging the rhetoric of the force free ideology. In a short time, we have already made significant progress. One of those examples of progress is Susan Garrett, a highly respected and well accomplished reinforcement based trainer reached out to me to train some dogs together. While that is in the works, we were able to sit down and record a podcast. Although we don’t necessarily agree on everything, we were able to have an enjoyable conversation about dogs and dog training. We touched on many subjects and the conversation definitely dove into some deep waters, and although we still have disagreements by the end of the podcast, we were able to achieve one important thing. We now have professionals in opposing “camps” willing to have a conversation. I hope everyone enjoys this podcast with Susan Garrett. As always, share with your dog friends and let’s keep moving forward! Susan Garrett is one of, if not THE most highly accomplished "reinforcement based" trainers in the world. She has a degree in animal science, and for decades has been one of the most consistently successful competitors in the sport of dog agility. Susan has been on the podium of the world and national championship events more than 50 times, winning those events a total of 38 times.
