One of my favorite people, dog trainer Victoria Schade about her book “Bonding with Your Dog: A
Trainer’s Secrets for Building a Better Relationship.”

Victoria Schade

I am proud to say that I wrote the foreword to this book.

In a wide ranging conversation, we were pretty politically incorrect – both agreeing it’s possible to adopt or purchase a dog who may never be the right match. The dog may  be content, but sure won’t jump in front of a train for you. If that happens, what do you do. Along those lines, is the unconditional love everyone talks about real?

We also talked about socializing puppies: What to do, and what not to do. And we also discussed senior dogs, how to keep older dogs active.
