Such great, useful and practical information which I constantly share with my clients. Working as a vet in New Zealand I love having these useful gems to share - hope that this helps create some better lives for my 4-legged clients.

Hello! This isn’t saying anything bad about the podcast itself, but in a few episodes Susan Garret has said that “dogs don’t understand the past tense.” Okay, but one of the instances in which she backed it up is in an episode where she explained the situation of pooping on the floor, and how...Read full review »

I found Susan via a link from the UK’s preeminent dog charity and I feel I have finally come home. I’ve had dogs all my life but nothing prepared me for the Cockapoo puppy who joined our household during lockdown. Yes he’s loving, and sweet natured and bright. He was also needy and nervous and...Read full review »

As someone with a six-month-old GSD pup, this podcast has been a lifesaver for me. I absolutely love it. Thank you Susan., for sharing your expertise, enthusiasm and insights.

That was spot on, I have a 5 year old Border Collie and now I understand her behaviour and how to engage with her.

Our puppy has just been born and I am binge listening to every episode before he comes to our home in 8 weeks! I am so thankful I have found this podcast!! I feel confident we will start out on the right paw (pun intended!) thank you Susan!

And as I’ve been watching Susan’s videos, I realized they were using her techniques! Training me with positive reinforcement, inviting me to “play” with enthusiasm/ and it worked! Now, on the verge of adopting a new dog from a rescue org, i am going to use these techniques!! #nevertooOldtolearn...Read full review »

Wish I had found this earlier. I’ve been using Susan’s methods for 3 weeks and can’t get over the change in my dog. I’ve been to 4 different schools and even though I got something from all of them the changes I’ve seen in the last 3 weeks have been so good. I joined Recallers and Home School the...Read full review »

I happened upon this podcast on a search for bettering my understanding of positive puppy training. I absolutely loved it and found it not only extremely useful for training my high energy dalmatian pup, but also really entertaining and laugh out loud funny. So much so, that when I got to the...Read full review »
Alexefames via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/23/23
I think that one of the biggest reason Susan’s way of training works is because it’s just so much FUN! Me and my dog have gotten addicted to training and play several times per day and the results are incredible ! I love listen to the pod cast, the episodes are short, engaging and rich of value....Read full review »
Ruby Aka via Apple Podcasts · France · 03/31/23
I can’t say enough good things about this podcast series. Susan’s instructions are excellent, clear, and. detailed. I have previously found positive reinforcement training confusing—it requires a whole new mindset from traditional “obedience” training. This series has entirely changed my outlook...Read full review »

I am devouring every podcast and YouTube video I can get. Next week we get our puppy. These podcasts have made me so confident to bring in another dog into the family.

I am learning so much from Susan Garrett. We got a puppy 3 weeks ago and I’ve found Susan’s advice about positive reinforcement and game based learning to be invaluable. I am binging her show and I joined Home School the Dog. I’m playing Treat Diving and It’s Yer Choice every day so far with Rue...Read full review »

These podcast are amazing. I love them so much I’ve listened to every single one over 5 times. I couldn’t be more grateful for the knowledge.I don’t own a dog yet but when I’m old enough I will be excited to apply Susan’s mechanics
susans bigest fan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/03/23
I just found this podcast and I love it. The teachings are thoughtful and rich in the “why” you would work with your dog this way. She helps you understand the way the dog thinks, which helps you think through every interaction you would have with your dog. I love the way she teaches respect.

I like it a lot and I can finally train my dog
Doggo me via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 12/20/22
Counter surfing was an escalating behavior for 3 months for my 8 month old Labrador retriever. Despite several different approaches to the behavior continued with lots of frustration. THIS podcast (#33) totally changed how we approached it. And within 2 days of treat diving and IYC the behavior...Read full review »
Denise and Basil via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/22
Susan will hold your attention through the entire information packed podcast and isn’t shy about calling you out on your negative habits. At the very least, you will likely be forced to evaluate yourself and your knowledge of training. I have turned my mindset around since finding Shaped by Dog...Read full review »
spiderkelleyev via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/22
Just finished binging all the podcasts episodes. It did take a few weeks of every time I got in the car. My puppy is 5 months old and I am 100% committed to doing better this time then I did with my past dogs. Thank you Susan for showing me a better kinder way to train my dog.
Gina 321 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/11/22
We’ve had our puppy for less than a week and I’ve been binging your episodes and already seeing great results!!! After listening to the episode on sleeping through the night and making the changes you taught, our pup slept all night with not a whimper! After nights of 4-5 wake ups!!! I can’t...Read full review »

Regardless if you want to learn the science behind the training or just want a better relationship with your furry best friend, this is the best way to spend your commute. Every bit of advice Susan gives is spot on. Try it and see for yourself. She understands your dog better than you, and...Read full review »
Texaschickie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/22
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 ???
Head better via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/28/22
Helpful in truly understanding dog training beyond the basics of food luring from an accomplished competitive dog trainer.
Fraudd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/27/22
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 »
Mes1220 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/22
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 »

Thank You Susan for an amazing podcast. I’m really enjoying learning about dog training and dog psychology. We are getting a Irish Doodle hopefully in September, and I’m itching to get going with your ideas and training. Best wishes to you and your Dogs Paul

The short but sweet dog training educational tidbits!
RandomizedToki via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/30/22
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
The Quirky Dog via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/22
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.
hanna3991 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/22
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

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.
