I love the information presented but she sounds like she's screaming it the whole time and is constantly referencing other episodes simply by the episode number as though I should have her entire catalog of episodes memorized and categorized by number. She doesn't really explain why...Read full review »

This is the best podcast out there for dog owners and dog lovers. I’m a professional dog trainer and I recommend it to my clients all the time. Susan Garrett is a fantastic trainer and so good at explaining concepts in a way that is concise, fun, and easy to understand.

I just found Susan’s podcast. We have a new puppy. We have 2 older rescue dogs in our home. We have had several dogs over the last 30 years. We have only had 2 true puppies. The last was 30 yrs ago.

I wonder what to do when your dog is uncomfortable with meeting new people she gets super excited and wants to meet them but super nervous and pees ???

Helpful in truly understanding dog training beyond the basics of food luring from an accomplished competitive dog trainer.

I had been a Recallers member for a few years but only recently found Susan’s podcast! Some of these subjects were discussed but somehow when I am driving or cooking I am absorbing the info in such a different depth. I am enjoying being able to rewind statements and concepts and listen to them...Read full review »

I absolutely love this podcast! I was looking for a trainer who uses science and psychology to train my pup, and Susan fits that bill perfectly. She is funny and entertaining to listen to, but also life changing, your dog will thank you for taking the time to understand how they learn and think....Read full review »

I can’t describe how interesting and useful this podcast has been to me (owner of a very under confident rescue). The way Susan is engaging as well as interesting means I really take on board what’s she’s saying, and all her concepts are easily understandable but also ground breaking. My...Read full review »

Not only does she offer some of the best dog training programs in the world, she is a person who inspires others by showing up as her best self. She has been an invaluable resource to me the past 15 years. <3

Shaped By Dog is amazing!! Susan is not just a dog trainer but a life trainer for your dog. She helped so many dog become the best dog they can be. I recommend this podcast for anyone who has a dog and a intention to make your dog happy. Thank you Susan. 🐶🐕🐩
Doggo Lover For Life via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/24/22
Not impressed. For a positive only trainer she sure sounds like she has anger issues. Every dog is different and every training has its place. Good luck!
Redheadwithheart via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/22
I love Shaped By Dog! Susan really knows what she’s talking about and I love her focus on reinforcement based training.
Kykerdoobie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/22
The title discribed something totally different than the episode did. I was waiting and waiting for the toy discriptions and they never came then she trailed off into a few too many stories.

My favourite podcast! Clear and positive. There is nothing I disagree with and I’ve listened to them all!
MossyJo via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 01/30/22
I just found this podcast recently and it’s already been so helpful for me and my border collie/aussie rescue who’s working through some anxiety challenges.

Susan Garrett is both a great dog trainer and a great teacher. Also, she’s kinda hilarious. I have listened to every episode several times. Highly recommended.
Squirrelrabbits via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/08/21
This! Every episode is jam packed with quality information on teaching you to be the person your dog thinks you are. Episode 122 is a personal favorite. Thank you, Susan for sharing your wealth of experience for the humans that love their dogs.

Crate Games, created by Susan Garrett, was recommended to me when a "herding" or "working" dog showed up at my door as a young stray. I had been told that this dog would be a "handful, maybe a nightmare" if it wasn't on a farm- and I was eager for some training tips...Read full review »

Love this podcast! Brilliant. I am learning tips and philosophies that are changing how I coach clients and how I work with my foster dog. Thank you Susan!
Ninjama25 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/21
If everyone who owns a dog listened to Susan’s wisdom, there would be far fewer rescue dogs, and more compassion in the world. I love this podcast and wait impatiently for each new episode. Susans methods are far more than dog training. They are about compassion, clarity and understanding....Read full review »

Absolutely love Susan and her approach to dog training, communicating straight and ultimately advocating for all dogs. My partner and I have felt like it’s our therapy, can be confronting, but so incredibly helpful. Thank you Susan, you have enhanced our lives and our puppy’s!

I first heard about Susan on a Tim Ferriss podcast and was intrigued by what she said. I absolutely LOVE the Shaped by Dog podcast. Susan’s training methods make so much sense.

Yesterday someone told me my 1 year old border collie is the best mannered young dog they’ve ever met, and also the calmest of her breed ♥️ I do a lot of enrichment but her manners and impulse control are all thanks to HS The Dog! Of course we still have a lot to do but this is just confirmation...Read full review »

Wow! Fantastic! I love how Susan has shared what she does to keep her dogs healthy and happy. I do most of the things Susan does but have less access to dog chiropractic and osteopaths etc. I’m sure my almost 15 yrs old pup could have used these therapies over the years. I do massage,...Read full review »
