Over the past 2 Tuesday nights, ABC TV featured a 2 part documentary called “Making Dogs Happy”. These 2 half hour shows were extremely educational for anyone who owns a dog, whether they are young or old.

In the show, there are 3 dogs featured with their owners as they are taught to become well trained “sniffer” dogs in just 2 weeks. Along the way, we all learn much about the science of “Dogmanship”, which involves learning how to interrupt their behaviour and how to train them.

If you missed the shows, then it is easy to watch them by following these links:
