Not some cheap, filmed-in-my-garage video, this dvd is well produced, colorful and lively...and the instructional content was excellent!

I have a 5 year old Shetland Sheepdog who is already trained, but I still learned things to teach him in this great DVD.

Very professionally put together, this DVD is one of the best out there to show you how to train your dog with your brains, not brawn. The DVD menus are very cute, and the music that accompanies them makes you feel like you're about to embark on an exciting adventure.

Nicole and Laura make the learning and teaching process fun for even the most inexperienced dog owner. Their laid back speaking style and easy-going manner makes listening to their instruction enjoyable.

I really like how they explain how the treats should and shouldn't be used- so you don't end up with a dog who will only work when treats are around! They stress that using positive reinforcement does not mean being permissive; your dog most certainly won't walk all over you if you train using their methods.

Nicole and Laura's instruction of all the basic commands is excellent. I would have preferred less camera movement during the 'sit' segment, but the actual training techniques are great. Also, the 'sit' and 'down' segments are done with different doggie challenges- such as how to 'down' a short dog, or how to work with getting a puppy to sit.

Every dog owner should see this DVD, if only to teach your dog more than just how to 'sit', 'down', 'come', and 'stay'. I was plesantly surprised to find so many 'bonus' commands that you don't normally find in training DVD's, like ringing the bell to go outside, how to take treats gently, among others. 'Go to Bed!' is one of my favorites.

And if you have a "Home Alone" dog, Nicole and Laura even go over how to keep them happy and safe while you're away. :)

Highly recommended for all levels of dog owner!

With a new puppy on the way to our home, my family rented five different dog training videos (including "The Dog Whisperer" and "Dog Training the John Fisher Way") and this was the best of the lot. It has good pacing, the hosts are pleasant and it has enough depth and breadth that it is worth purchasing -- which we did. We have gone back to it as we have progressed and for refreshers on certain commands. Just a good solid DVD.

This organized and well produced DVD made it very easy to get the tips necessary to train my dog. Each command is on a separate chapter which makes it wonderfully easy to review the training tip that I was interested in.
I enjoyed the wide varitey of dogs used in this DVD. Interesting tips were used for both large and small dogs. (I don't have a short legged dog, but was fascinated that this was covered in the section on "down".) My dog loved Nicole's voice, and watches the speakers intently when she praises the dogs.
This DVD is great; practical and fun to watch.

I've been through two different "obedience training" classes in the past. My dog flunked. Which was sad, because I brought my cap and gown for him to wear at graduation (sigh).
I wish this video was available then! I am amazed at how enjoyable training your dog can be, for both the pet as well as the owner!
Now, years later, I am getting a new dog. I want to start out right, so I watched this DVD. All I can say is WOW! I love the way the trainers, Laura and Nicole work with the dogs. I found myself smiling throughout. They took many different aged dogs and literally trained them in front of my very eyes. It was that quick! Not only did it look fun for the owner, but also for the dog. The dogs couldn't wait to perform the desired trick.
The owner directions were clear and concise. I know now when I should reward and why. It just makes sense.
I can't wait for my new puppy! This is a video I will watch again and again, so my new dog and I create a lasting, loving bond together.

It is now 3 years later, and I have to say that the gentle methods promoted by this video has helped to create such a great dog. I actually get kind of a sick feeling when I see the kind of methods they promote on television shows like the "dog whisperer." You can get so much more accomplished by teaching with love than FORCING the dog to do your will. My dog would do anything for me, because she loves to perform, and I've never had to force her to do anything. If you're looking to train your dog, this is a great place to start!

Read the other reviews and decided to get this DVD, and were very pleased with it. In fact, it was better than we had thought an instructional DVD could be on this subject. It is professionally done, and easy to navigate. Really appreciated that they used a wide range of dog breeds, as well as different ages and temperments. Saw immediate, positive results. Plus it was fun to watch casually, and then apply their advice as the circumstances permitted. Our young daughter would get so enthused from the video, that she would immediately want to try out tips right away. Yes, there are certainly times when a trainer/behaviourist is valuable, but why spend good money on one of them for many basic and mid-level training methods that you can get from this video? Then, if a trainer does work with you and your dog, you are not wasting time and money on simple training tasks. Also, it may help you assess what sort of trainer might be best for your dog, if you subsequently decide you need some extra help from one.
