I watched it again recently, and was struck again by how useful it is.
Many of the people taking the puppy training class are children themselves -- some look as young as four or five years old. This would be an excellent video for children to watch. Both kids and adults can benefit from watching Sirius Puppy Training several times.
I think that even people with a fair amount of dog experience would benefit from Sirius Puppy Training -- unless they have already watched other programs of Ian Dunbar's. I'm a great book lover, but the DVD gives you a lot that you couldn't get from his (or anyone's) books.
Note that the program is designed for puppies under the age of 18 weeks without major behavior problems.
This DVD worked great for my family and our new rescue puppy because we could start her training at home before she was old enough for classes. Training *is* essential for the happiness of the whole family and can save your dog's life. Highly recommended.
The video is like taking a "puppy kindergarten" training course, but without the other puppies. You will learn a lot from watching, and re-watching, the positive training methods used. It is especially helpful to see how the owners each overcome unique difficulties with their dogs (a slow malamute, a shy Westie, a hyper Golden, etc.)
The only downside to the video is that it is designed for puppies under the age of 18 weeks-- once they hit adolescence, while you can still use positive training methods, you will probably also need some corrections.

Great video to watch for owners of puppies. I watched it right after I brought home our pup and the techniques are very helpful. She quickly learned to sit and lay down. Read morePublished 16 months ago by jenncowa

I thought I was purchasing the "Dunbar training method" I guess in retrospect the fact that it is geared to puppies is obvious. Read morePublished on December 20, 2012 by dog walker
DVD was Ok, but not very realistic. The classes take place in what looks like a church hall. Not a typical place to be interacting with your puppy. Read morePublished on May 5, 2011 by Nadia Rohrs
