6.01 The Myth of Intent

We started out with the intention of discussing all the most common dog training myths. But, as is so often the case, once we got started, we just couldn’t stop, and so this episode ended up being entirely about one of the most common myths in dog training: the myth of intent. Too often, dog owners and trainers get too hung up on why a dog did something, usually blaming the dog for being spiteful, malicious, stubborn, etc. In the end, we’ll never know why dog’s do things, but that shouldn’t stop us from training!
