  1. Awww! When Missy starts crying and you say, “It’s okay, Angel!!” We say “Angel” all the time, even though that’s not our Mylo’s name either. We love your training! Mylo is literally the smartest dog at every puppy social we’ve taken him to. He’s only 14 weeks old, and he’s already jumping through hoops, skateboarding, agility training, etc. 🙂 He does tricks when surrounded by tons of other puppies, and he’s just a good boy!! We owe a lot to your videos. We also bought your book and have been reading it! Thank you! <3

    1. +recycleonwednesdays We love him so much. I’m so glad people like Zak exist that raise awareness on how to train puppies right. I’m very grateful we found Zak’s videos.

    1. Bohemian Books I have a springer spaniel crossed with a Jack Russel BUT he does not listen to me when I m walking with him I gp to a DOG school BUT iT just does not seem to work does anyone have tips

  2. With your upcoming video about “pit bulls” please discuss how that is NOT a Breed of dog but a group or types of breeds and how different they can actually be. Being in a city I have to constantly deal with how people assume it is a breed and they are all the same and act the same, obviously with the aggression myth along with it. It is so bad to the point of breeds blacklisted from apartments “Pit Bull” is listed as a BREED and any dog with even a hint of that adorable face gets rejected.

    1. What city do you live in? No cities should ban any breed-you can have what you want. Is it New York, Chicago, Shangai, Dubai, etc, those are the most advanced and largest cities in the world and should not ban that

    2. @the artwoolf Pit Bulls are a breed. You are thinking “bully breeds” which are a type. Lumping all bully breeds together and calling them all pit bulls makes it easier for BSL laws and dog bite statistics to warp the numbers.

  3. How to choose a dog….
    1. Want a Beagle
    2. Read about beagles
    3. See how hard it is to have a Beagle
    4. Hear everyone tell how hard it is to have a Beagle
    5. See videos about beagles destroying everything
    6. Buy a Beagle

    1. @DaGodlyPug heyyy. I cringe reading back those messages I was 14 haha 😂 he is amazing! He is My best friend. We are literally inseparable and I couldn’t imagine life without him. He is perfect in every way for my family and he is soo obsessed with me (which is a problem as I’m going to uni next year). He has changed my life in so many ways and taught me so many life lessons. 🙂

    2. @Nekejwowsn Adoption is the best thing ever, and I totally support it, but for some owners, especially first-time owners, having an adopted dog is tough cause you can’t predict their personality. But for experienced owners, shelters are amazing!

  4. I think it would be awesome to see a episode about service dogs, working dogs, ESA and other dogs with jobs and the difference between them. Maybe even see some of the tasks that the dogs can be trained to do!

  5. My school had a fundraiser for our local animal shelter, and we raised over two hundred dollars in one day. Our city is super tiny you could call it a big town so it’s a huge achievement

    1. krisisnkaos pit bull is a American bull dog 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    2. @Angelica Rabago he is an American Bull Dog – the same type as Chance in Homeward Bound. Very rare to see them nowadays. You can tell them apart from pit bulls by the shape of their head and they are much taller and leggier

  6. All of those homeless dogs seemed innocent and not the hostile type, the shelter I’ve went to, every single dog looked ready to kill someone… Didn’t know a corgi mutt could be so hostile

    1. Imagine a human was trapped in a prison without having committed a crime. They hear the screams and cries of inmates 24/7. Imagine that person would be hostile? That’s what shelter dogs are experiencing. If you visit a shelter YOU smell like danger to them. They don’t know if you are there to euthanize or poke or prod. I’ve seen people walk into rescue centers and kick the fences/grates to get the dogs worked up. Those dogs are easily frightened.

      If you want to visit with a dog, ask for a private room. Sit still and let the animal explore, calmly, quietly. They usually have treats you can offer too. For a healthy dog if you’re calm you can see their true nature within a few minutes.

    1. Jane GB Hey! Sorry I never answered. I already have him now, and he is a golden retriever named Hopper. I love him so much, but he’s sure a handful. He’s about 15 weeks. Hope you figure it out!

  8. How i choose a dog
    1. Want a husky
    2. Read about huskies
    3. Ask husky owners about huskies
    4. Listen to the owner talk about how loud they are
    5. By a pair of noise cancelling headphones
    6. Buy a husky

    1. 1. Want a husky
      2. Read about huskies
      3. Ask husky owners about huskies
      4. Realize they are very good dogs
      5. Look for a husky breeder
      6. There are no husky breeders, this is southeastern US.
      7. Get an Australian Shepherd 🙂

    2. My neighbor has a husky. Beautiful boy but sadly he isn’t taken for the walk, he isn’t trained, he is just on a chain in the garden all the time.

    3. @rena h. yes. They wouldn’t let him inside so he is outside type of dog. Something like a guard dog. He is probably around 4 years old. When he was a puppy they did take care of him pretty fine. But as he grew older he needed a lot of walks and stuff. He used to run away a lot since he is a husky but they didn’t want to lose him so he is now on the chain all the time and when somebody from the house comes out he seeks attention and love but they usually ignore him or scream at him if he is too noisy. This type of taking care of your dog is somehow considered to be completely normal in my area and I can tell you that at least 4 other dogs live like this on just my street alone. And this is way better than what some people do to their dogs. Don’t even want to talk about local cats. Dogs have it way better here than cats so you can imagine how cats are treated here. What a fucking place to live.
