In today’s episode, Eva and Olga welcome Zak George, a world-class dog trainer.  He starred in Animal Planet’s SuperFetch and BBC’s Who Let the Dogs Out?  And his YouTube Channel is the number one destination for dog training content in the world, with more than ten million views annually. His first book, Zak George’s Dog Training Revolution, was published in 2016 by Penguin Random House.   Zak is a huge proponent of positive reinforcement dog training.


  • Zac’s journey from a real estate agent to #1 dog trainer on YouTube.
  • Why, sometimes, kids are better dog trainers than adults.
  • Dog breed stereotyping, and how we can change that thinking about dogs.
  • Simple tricks you can teach your dog.
  • The difference between reward method training versus punishment method training.
  • The types of treats Zak gives to dogs when he’s training them.
  • And much more!


In this episode, Zac explained how all dog breeds are special with their own unique characteristics.  For the Dog Lovers in our community (we know you are out there!), we created this adorable customizable download where you get to be the Dog Walker of the adorable dogs pictured below.  And we’re challenging you to pick a breed you’d like to learn more about, and write down 3 unique characteristics of that breed.  The sheet can be customized with your face and name, and it is 100% free to download. Click here to claim you free download.

If you complete the Dog Lover challenge, please let Olga know by emailing her at [email protected].  You will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Amazon Gift card and 1-month free membership in Post Pal Club.  Winners are selected monthly and contacted by email (as well as announced on our show!).   December’s winner was Becky Louis from Austin Texas.  Congrats Becky and thanks you for listening and participating.
