Made Me Chuckle
Josh Hara is “YoYoHa”. He does a lot of cartoons about caffeine, and one of his claims to fame (becoming famous) is the cartoons he’s drawn on the side of coffee cups. He’s worth a visit. I’m not sure this is one of the coffee cup series, but it made me chuckle, so here it is.
I couldn’t find a website, so here’s his Instagram page to sample more of his work/humor. Click Here for YoYoHa’s Instagram.

Don't Rely On The Two-Finger Rule For Dog Collars Read This First
A vet provides some off-the-cuff advice that is common but in “Ask The Dog Guy’s opinion is generally unhelpful, not to mention potentially wrong and sometimes downright dangerous in many instances. It (to me) seems devoid of common sense. Here’s some better advice.
Ask The Dog Guy's Power Steering Dog Training Collar
If your dog is more powerful than you and you’re tired of coming home from a walk with one of your arms longer than the other, you might need a little leverage. Note: The goal of any training device should be to teach self-control, rather than to force self-control. Always learn how to use your training tools before just ‘winging’ it.
P.S. Deal Of The Week
Quite possibly the shortest book on companion dog training ever written. 😄 In fact, more of an essay. Nevertheless, if you can ignore the fact that I seemingly ignored every grammar and editing rule in existence (I did), you’ll likely learn more about companion dog training from the perspective of what not to do and why, and what to do and why than anywhere else. Only $4.99 CND, which is about $4.40 US. Click Here For More Information

Help Others Discover Science & Common Sense In Companion Dog Training
My goal in 2023 (and onward) is to provide larger numbers of companion puppy and dog owners with access to science and common sense to counter the tsunami of ‘treat, treat, treat’ or ‘might is right’ misinformation that the amateur dog training world disseminates. I will be doing so via my YouTube Channel, Ask The Dog Guy ‘Pawdcast’, and an increased presence on things like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. (and this newsletter).

Subscribe To The "Ask The Dog Guy" Pawdcast
Pawdcast content ranges from responses to companion dog behavior questions, to tips about training, breeds, breeding, rescues, etc. You’ll find the content is very different from most of the guidance you’ll find on the Internet and from people whose training experience seems to be based on watching the movie The Lady and The Tramp and confusing it with a documentary about dog behavior. (Treat, treat, treat, or might is right.) Instead, you’ll find guidance based on both science and common sense, along with the perspective of a 30+ year career working full-time with companion puppy and dog owners and their dogs.
