Ken Rameriz is a world-renowned legend in the world of dog training, chief training officer/executive vice president Karen Pryor Training offers a lesson, as we chat about what punishment is and what punishment isn’t. And I dared to disagree (to some extent). And is there ever a situation which you should and can effectively punish a dog (or cat)? This is a high-level discussion, and the kind of thing you can hear at a behavior or dog trainer conference.

I also tell the story of a driver – without a license – who happened to be a dog. 

I offer tips on finding lost dogs.
