Ian Dunbar pulls no punches as he rocks the air waves once again on Bark Radio. What does he advise? Train your puppy. Why? Because Ian Dunbar says so, that why! And because your dog needs to know the house rules from the very beginning AND because training is FUN!! And if you don’t train your puppy, that sweet baby may very well become a shelter dog before he’s a year old. And that is why there is Shelter Dog Prevention Month. Think about it: shelter dogs were once puppies. How do those lovable puppies go from being the apple of someone’s eye to being homeless? Ian tells you how it happens and how you can prevent it. Listen up, dog lovers. Share this episode of Bark Radio with everyone you know who has a puppy or is getting a puppy. And go to Ian’s site, Dog Star Daily.
