Why These Dog Trainers are Raising their Dogs Instead of Training them!

Kim Brophey joins Nikki this week to talk about how their mindset of "training" dogs has changed over the years. Kim talks about Monk, her massive Great Pyr/Golden Retriever mix, who is on par to reach about 170lbs. Nikki talks about Myers and how her interaction and expectations have changed drastically from what they once were!
