The K-Nine Lingo Podcast with Garrett Ridley

My interview with Tri-Valley K9 Service’s Felix Sunga…

I am happy to have been able to have Felix Sunga on the podcast last week. I have known Felix for a very long time but I have never had the chance to sit down and talk with him outside of training. So, it was nice to sit down and talk with him about how he got started and hear some of the stories from his long career in dogs. I am happy and proud of him for starting Tri-Valley K9 Services down in Elk Grove. Felix is a very knowledgeable and talented dog trainer and has hundreds of thousands of hours handling, decoying and training dogs in the working and pet sectors of the dog training industry.

Felix and my training styles and methods are very much alike as well as how we us a balanced training philosophy to work with our clients and dogs. I really enjoyed doing this episode and chatting about a bunch of different topics. It was nice to get to know Felix a bit more and talk to him about his new dog training venture. I am always rooting for those that want to improve and better their life. I am proud that he followed his heart back into training and helping people! So please join us in on our wonderful conversation we had!

My chat with NorCal Adventure Dogs owner, Anny Godwin…

Alright, first off Id like to thank Anny for joining me on The K9 Lingo podcast. Second, just a quick little warning on the language. I didn’t want to squash Anny’s passion in any way! lol…

So, last week I had the chance to sit down and chat with freind and fellow dog trainer Anny Godwin of NorCal Adventure Dogs in Placer country. Like I have said before, I am always interested in chatting with other trainers, listening and learning from their experiences, story’s and opinions.  

I was recently contacted by an old friend from high school who used Anny’s service to help her train her new dog and said she loved working with her. So I asked Anny if she would like to sit down and chat with me. 

We agree on mostly everything. However, there are a few things that we do not see eye to eye on. But, that is normal and she is a really good young trainer with an excellent business. I would recommend her service to anybody looking for a quality trainer in her area. Anny and I cover a lot of information in this episode. But, I especially like that she is so informative about nutrition. She shares some really good points and I believe you will enjoy this episode. So listen now!!
