Editorial Reviews

This DVD is 4 hours long. The purpose of this Leerburg training DVD is teach you the art of dog training. It's our goal to show you that dog training is not rocket science it's 100% common sense. There are no "Tricks or Secrets of the Trade." Dog training is is an art that you can learn if your willing to put your mind to it. The best dog trainers know how to build a bond based on two way respect between the dog and the handler. These trainers know how to motivate a dog to want to learn. They understand how and when to apply distractions during training so they can show the dog that it must mind under all circumstances. Our DVD will show you how to approach dog training. It will teach you how to break a task into small incremental training steps (or building blocks). Once the dogs has learned each of these small blocks we show how to put them back together again so the dog can easily perform the exercises. If I were you and I were considering spending many hours of time following the training recommendations of someone like myself I would want to fully understand that persons philosophy of dog training. I suggest that you take a minute right now and read the article I wrote on my philosophy on dog training. There is an old saying, "Dogs know what you know and they know what you don't know." My dog training program and this web site can be your first step in the journey of showing your dog what you know. This DVD is organized into chapters, just like a book. The menu for our DVD allows you to watch the chapter you want when you want. This makes for a very simple review The information in this video is designed to be watched again and again and again. There is more information here than you would get in any local 10 week obedience class.

We've enjoyed putting into practice some of the things in this training DVD with our dog. It's too bad that most of us will never purchase a product like this until we run into difficulties. I've had dogs all my life and never knew half of the stuff Frawley is teaching. I realize now that though we've had good experiences with our dogs, our experiences could have been much better if we had understood more in the way of what makes a dog "tick." The dog we have now (the reason for buying this and a number of other Leerburg DVDs) has become much more respectful toward our teenage daughter since she's been changing the way she treats the dog.

We also purchased the one about pack structure for the family dog, and that's a must as well. We've learned that our daughter's deferential treatment of this dog, whom she loves, was causing the dog to see her as an inferior pack member and causing the aggression problem which was our reason for the purchase. If you're only going to get one of these rather expensive videos, get the pack structure one. The alternative for us was having the dog put down, and that would have really hurt.

Oh yes . . . I should mention that Frawley has decades of experience in the real world and is not an actor playing a dog trainer or a celebrity dog psychologist. Some of the things (like "alpha rolling") advocated by these better-known trainers may be okay with a gentle (and small) dog, but with a harder dog could lose you your face. So be warned. I was advised to have our daughter "alpha roll" our dog, but had the sense to stop her when I sensed the dog's impending reaction. After having watched some of the Leerburg DVDs and heard some of his stories about this practice, I'm very, very glad we didn't push that one.

I searched quite a few hours for a training video or book that I felt would be helpful and that was provided by someone with experience with dog training and not someone that just happened to be particularly popular. I found more popular trainers with a lot less training than I would have liked. This DVD is very specific and covers alot of ground, you will not be able to get through this in one sitting and you will spend weeks upon weeks covering everything and utlilizing the information here over and over. There are some aspects of training that I wanted to steer clear of (choke chains) etc and I appreciate that these DVD's do not focus on that specific type of correction, it gives you options and helps you understand how it applies directly to your dog and your situation. As we all know, every dog is different. This DVD has helped me to establish boundaries in my house with my dogs and has given me the tools to knowing how to train them, how to understand if they need correction and if so, how to provide that correction without harming my relationship with my dog or forfeiting my ability to stay the master of the relationship. I would recommend this video to someone like myself who needs guidance training their dog, who really wants to put the time into it and reap the rewards. I had issues with a dominant dog and it has been wonderful understanding her so much better and being able to control her behavior, she is much happier as well as I.

I love this training dvd. Simple to understand, and I like the fact that it has different sections and you can choose what to watch. (like the sit command or down command)So if you need to go back and watch a certain section you can, instead of having to watch a whole video again to try to find the topic you need to watch.

This is a DVD I purchased along with 2 others from Ed Frawley. He is so awesome with showing the do's and dont's of training your dog to be the best he/she can be. He is very dedicated to what he does and has a great background and a love for animals. I have used his techniques from this basic training DVD with my German Shepherd. She was totally out of control, hard headed, head strong, aggressive, very protective of me (since she became my service dog because I have seizures) I knew I HAD to have some help with getting her under control. Unfortunately my husband didn't see anything wrong with her behavior, but I was with her 24/7 and he was only with her after work and on weekends. He thought her aggressiveness was "cool" and thought German shepherds were suppose to "be like that". We adopted her at 1 year old from the adoption center, 3 years ago. We were told that who had to give her up for adoption was in some part of law enforcement and had her in training as a drug dog or a dog that would sniff out bombs, etc, but he had to return to the Middle East and she was not allowed to go with him. So I was desperate and after contacting some local dog trainers, I was told by each one, that she was not one that could be rehabilitated. I knew I could not afford services from Ceasar Milan, but would have loved to have his help. So I took the step of looking for something to help me help her. I found these DVDs to watch over and over again, to get directions to rehabilitate my dog. After applying the techniques from this DVD the very first time, my dog was responding to the simple commands immediately. As each day went by, she was responding more and more, and quite quickly I might add. Today, I still use the techniques and she is a very different dog. I am so proud of her.Read more ›
