Re: Episode 303 - The Terrier Takes Manhattan (Jan 22)

That was one serious episode. Great work with getting the couple to work it out. I must admit, I wish I could have seen more of the training. I am curious about Xander and resource guarding issues. I notice when Jason or Lindsey went towards his food, he would lunge and bite. But when the dogs were ...

Re: Episode 301 - Menace to High Society (Jan 8)

how can you help a fearful dog to become more social? Should they go places like petcos, petsmarts and parks to interact with people or is it best to keep them away from people? thanks I know one thing you can do is take a book, and your dog to the park. Find a nice bench and sit and read. Every ti...

Re: Episode 301 - Menace to High Society (Jan 8)

I have not seen the episode yet. But I can't wait to see it! From what I have read, it looks like a lot of fans/viewers have a lot of negative feedback about dog owner Jill. I think it must be hard to watch someone not appear serious, and clueless about dogs, and have someone who knows tons about tr...

Re: Episode 217 - Feisty Females - May 15

Hi Victoria, I have noticed when watching your shows, and especially with this episode, that when you give the dog a no reward marker, you don't use the word "no". Is that a personal choice? To me the word "no" is overused in dog training. I think many people abuse the word and the poor dog has no i...

Re: Episode 216 - Living on the Edge - May 8

This is definitely an episode that I would love to see how the dog is doing months from now. It was such an educational show on how you always remain positive and clam even when the dog is out of control. When Sammy was playing rough with Zack, it never even came across my mind to not jump in and pu...

Re: Episode 215 - Bulldog Battle - May 1

Hi Victoria, Great episode! I have a question. When you meet a client, and they have decided to re-home their dog, is it up to the owners to find the new home, or you? I know you do observe the meeting to make sure things go well and to make sure the dog ends up in the right home. But who normally f...

Re: Victoria - CHANGE YOUR CLOTHES ON THE US SHOWS!!

You know, when I work with dogs, I find myself wearing a lot of the same clothes. Think, how do dogs great one another? Through smell. So I think Victoria wearing the same outfit is quite brilliant. The dog can recognize Victoria, and think, "Hey, I know that smell!" and not get stressed. Victoria j...

Re: Episode 204 - Tiny Tyrant - Jan 23

Hi Victoria! With last night's episode, Princess was aggressive with new people walking into the house, including you. If Princess was not be held back, and came towards you biting, how would you have handled the situation? How do you avoid confrontation with a very upset dog? Do you jump up on the ...

Re: Episode 202 - House of Horror - Jan 9

Hi Victoria!

Why were you making the dogs stop at the curbs and having them "settle down" before crossing the street? I was a little unclear with that.

thanks!
