Editorial Reviews


The best DVD on basic training of pets...highly recommended. --Chronicle of the Dog, the newsletter of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, May/June 2005

Paul Owens is hands-down the best dog trainer I've ever worked with! His dog training DVD captures all of his professionalism and expertise in an effective and easy-to-follow format. --Jeff Probst, Host of Survivor

The 3-step method of positive dog training that Paul Owens developed and shares on this DVD is the answer millions have been waiting for. A remarkable and most welcome achievement. --Mary Brennan, D.V.M., author of The Natural Dog

Product Description

Product Description:

THE DOG WHISPERER: BEGINNING AND INTERMEDIATE DOG TRAINING presents the newest advances in positive training methods that are easy-to-use, fast, effective, and motivating. The DVD features professional step-by-step methods by one of the leading proponents of nonviolent training in the world, Paul Owens. Owens is also the author of the best-selling books, The Dog Whisperer and The Puppy Whisperer.

· Learn three simple steps to each of eight different behaviors.

· Solve unwanted jumping, stealing, barking, pulling on the leash, digging, and chewing.

· Get reliable behavior without jerking, hitting, shocking, or shaking.

· Learn clicker training for faster results.

· Learn how to quickly wean your dog off food treats.

· Include fun tricks and games to play with your dog.

Along with step-by-step instruction, THE DOG WHISPERER DVD includes segments that give an amusing, yet instructional look at training from the dog's point of view, featuring celebrity cameo voiceovers by Jeffrey Tambor, Cheri Oteri and Kevin McDonald. This combination of entertainment and professional training makes it an ideal program for individuals or families looking to train their dog to be reliable without physical negatives or punishment.

Special Bonuses Included on DVD: Man's First Friend is a 3-minute, state-of-the-art animated short about cave-people and their first encounter with the family dog. Princess Sabrina is a dog puppet with heart, pizzazz and humor who is featured on her own talk show on this DVD. In another segment, she actually trains a real-life dog, making training easy to understand and fun to do.

This DVD was so boring and was a waste of money.

I have a ten year old terrier and a one year old terrier. The first was trained the old-fashioned way (punishment/reward), the second was trained according to Paul Owen's method in his dvd and book. I achieved faster and more reliable results with Paul's method than with the traditional way, while retaining more of my terrier's happy-go-lucky nature. Though my first dog is well behaved, the traditional method was a longer, more stressful road for both of us.

Paul's method involves giving a command to the dog, then rewarding that behaviour. So, in the case where the dog is doing something you don't want, like jumping on a guest, instead of saying "No Jumping!" and scolding, you say "Come!", then "Down", and bring the dog to your side. The theory is, instead of telling your dog what you DON'T want, have them do what you DO want, thus eliminating the undesirable behaviour. This way, the dog chooses to "be good", instead of being forced or threatened to "be good".

I recommend it very highly if you are a looking for quick results while maintaining a close and equitable relationship with your dog. If you enjoy a more stern and severe approach involving domination-based punishment, and you are a very controlling person, then don't waste your time. If you are a dog lover willing to put in some time and patience at the beginning in exchange for an obedient dog for the long term, then this method is for you. Paul's dogs obey because they CHOOSE and WANT to, not because they fear punishment.

One handy aspect to Paul Owen's DVD is that you can select from different commands "Sit", "Stay", etc, without having to go throught the whole DVD.

First off, let me preface by saying that I own 2 highly rambunctious (some would have said out-of-control) herding dogs. I had tried many, many training techniques (including the current fad "dominance theory"), yet my dogs weren't responding. In fact, one became so afraid of the leash (which we had been using during training) that it became impossible to take her on walks. Then I discovered (through some great resources like "Whole Dog Journal", my local humane societies and a WONDERFUL book entitiled "The Other End Of The Leash" by Dr. Patricia McConnell) reward-based training which is completly non-violent and turned training into a favorite part of the day for both my dogs and I. During my copious research one name that kept coming up was dog-trainer Paul Owens. I bought the DVD and the book and was amazed to find that I got reliable results in usually no longer than 3-15 minute sessions. My dogs WANTED to do the right thing - not be "corrected" for doing the wrong thing. Many people criticize treat-reward training and think that you will constantly have to carry food in your pockets. This is simply not true. We are currently down to about a 50-50% treat-affection reward and the treats are lessening daily while the results are not. Mr Owens also calls to attention the fact that our states-of-mind during training have a direct impact on our dogs and their ability to focus and learn. My dogs and I still practice a little every day, but the minute my dogs see me head for Mr Owen's book they come running.

This is, hands down, the best dog training DVD available today. Paul Owens bases his entire approach to dog training on a philosophy of nonviolence, which means not causing any physical, emotional, or psychological harm to your dog. What a relief for those of us who are tired of being told to bully or "dominate" our dogs! The training exercises that Owens explains and demonstrates work wonderfully at producing a dog who is cooperative and enthusiastic about responding to requests, without any yelling or jerking of chains or grabbing and shaking. I don't WANT to do that to my dog, and Owens shows how you don't HAVE to do that in order to have a dog who fits in as a well behaved member of a human family.

What's unique about this DVD is that it combines the sound scientific principles behind "reward-based" training with a philosophical approach that draws on yoga and other Eastern disciplines. Reward-based training uses techniques that reward the dog for doing "good" behavior, and witholds rewards when the dog doesn't do the good behavior. It sets up a situation in which dogs enjoy doing the things you ask of them. On the other hand, the breathing techniques that Owens demonstrates have a concrete effect on the way your dog reacts. They really work! I have calmed down my barking dog many times, simply by changing the way I breathe.

Seven years ago, I read Owens' book THE DOG WHISPERER, and this DVD takes up nicely where the book left off. The advantage to the DVD is that you get to see the training exercises actually demonstrated. I also appreciate the fact that you can go directly to the exercise you would like to work on by choosing from the menu, without having to rewind or fast forward.
