Developed by the APDT to help strengthen the bond between humans and their canine companions, C.L.A.S.S. promotes the use of positive reinforcement as a means to enhance a dog's basic manners and real life skills. It encourages humans and trainers to take training out of the classroom and apply it to everyday life situations. Find out how your dog can have C.L.A.S.S. too!

PetLifeRadio.com - DSPN - Episode 12 Those Greatest American Dogs, 1 Year Later - Where Are They Now? Part 2

2009-10-18 :: Laurie Williams
Length: 57s

Well, the finale was a year ago, and by now most fans have probably figured out what I knew the moment I drove away from that televised Canine Academy: there’s not going to be a second season of Greatest American Dog. Even though nearly 10 million viewers tuned in to the premiere, the show’s ratings experienced a steady decline throughout the season and ended with an average of 5-6 million weekly viewers. Comparing that to other popular dog-themed television shows like the The Dog Whisperer on the National Geographic Channel (which barely averages 1 million viewers weekly), GAD was one of the most watched TV series about dogs ever! Join us as we catch up with some members of the cast and get the 4-1-1- on what they've been doing for the past year.

PetLifeRadio.com - Episode 2 On the Road to Best In Show - The Life of a Conformation Dog Show Champion

2008-11-14 :: Laurie Williams
Length: 41s

Some might consider conformation dog shows nothing more than "beauty pageants" for dogs, but that description does this long standing and popular sport a tremendous disservice. The fact is, next to the Kentucky Derby, the Westminster Dog show is the oldest, continuous sporting event held in the United States. Each breed of dog has a standard, and in conformation dog shows, each dog is judged individually on how closely he or she matches the breed standard. Conditioning, training and preparing a dog for a show career takes time, diligence and patience.... and it starts before the dog is even bred! Come learn all about this sport with a history steeped deep in tradition with our guest Terry Patton of Felicity English Springer Spaniels and breeder and owner of Ch. Felicity's Diamond Jim, aka "James," winner of the coveted Westminster Best in Show title in 2006.
