Editorial Reviews

Updated Fall 2010. This DVD is 1 hour and 59 minutes long. Over the years this video has been one of our most popular training videos for new puppy owners. The first version of this tape was released in the late 1980's. The video has been expanded and updated several times over the years. Our current version was completed in October 2010. This training video answers all the questions new puppy owners have concerning the care of their new puppy. Ed Frawley has been breeding dogs since 1978 and has produced over 350 litters of working bloodline German Shepherd puppies. Over the years Ed has been asked just about every question a new puppy owner can think to ask. This DVD was originally produced to be given to every Leerburg Puppy Customer. The intent was to help Leerburg Puppy Customers get through the first 8 months of the puppy's life. Even though Leerburg only breeds German Shepherds, this new training video is not just for German Shepherds. It's an all-breed video. Your Puppy 8 Week to 8 Months is sold to breeders all over the country who breed many different kinds of dogs. These breeders then give the video to their puppy customers.

Some parts of the video were useful: using a leash around the house, avoidance of rocks, and creating a clear alpha figure for your puppy in a harmonious way. I rated the video a two because it seemed more like an infomercial on other products that Leerburg had for sale. These queries frequently drew my attention away from the training methodology and made me think of his marketing strategies instead. Many points were reiterated several times and became a bore and some factors such as proper discipline measures or consequences were never demonstrated. Many of the training techniques were edited so much, it was difficult to discern how old the pups were or when the training began.Challenges were not addressed but were referred to their other videos and paraphernalia they had for sale. We all know that there are always some tangles when training a pup. I expected much more methodology and how-to's for the large price tag.

Everyone has an opinion about dog training. For the new dog owner, it can be incredibly confusing, especially if you don't have any experience with raising a puppy. This video has an incredible amount of information. I have used it in conjunction with working with a professional trainer. I have literally been studying this DVD and taking notes. It has REALLY helped me. It is long and often dry, since it is a lot of info. But there is a lot of good visual demonstration. It is well worth your patience. Better to invest the time and money now to get your dog and your family off to the right start than pay later in more dramatic and expensive ways.

It gave some pretty good ideas, however, we have never been every excited about giving a lot of food treats to get a dog to obey commands. We have found praise goes a long way. His recommendation to purchase a training pen was very good and we found it effective. Leerburg gives just enough info to make it neccessary to have to buy more of his DVD's to get the whole story. He is clever about marketing his products.

i think its a good DVD. it has too much information and the total playing time is 3hrs!!!! it cost only $40 and i would definately pay $40 for this DVD. its based on all positive reenforcement. i am sure it works, but i would really like people to also read boks by William Koehler. very detailed info so have to give him 5 stars! i do, however, think people need to learn about other methods of training dogs too.

Leerburg's video productions are great. Unlike the abusive trainers you see on certain cable TV shows, Ed does not advocate alpha rolling, stepping on toes, or yanking dogs around. His method is to be firm, consistent, and builds a good relationship between puppy and owner.

Fair at very best. You can't argue with the results he achieves, but some of his techniques are slightly unrealistic for me personally. I have purchased six or eight of his DVDs, and each time I tell myself I won't spend that kind of money again. I guess my love for my animals and my drive to do the very best I can for them overshadows the disappointment that I feel when I view the videos.

THE OTHER TRAINING VIDEOS PALE IN COMPARISON. I BOUGHT A LOT OF TRAINING VIDEOS IN THE PAST BUT NOTHING GAVE ME SO MUCH INFORMATION LIKE THIS ONE. MOST ESPECIALLY IF YOUR DOG IS A GERMAN SHEPHERD. I WILL ONLY PURCHASE LEERBURG VIDEOS FROM NOW ON. THANKS AMAZON!!

This DVD does have some useful information, but nothing to justify the 40$ price tag. The information, however, isn't anything you couldn't get from the website for free--or most other credible websites dealing with dogs or pets--and it isn't much help if you're really looking for practical training advice. Regarding the price, I feel a bit cheated here. There isn't a whole lot of practical training information, and just when it seems like you'll get something substantive, the DVD just directs you to their other products. Feels a bit like bait and switch marketing. I'll also mention that if you don't have the resources available to you that Leerburg does--i.e. large tracts of rural land and seemingly total commitment of your time--you might find this product a bit off-putting. There is no mention of raising a dog in an urban landscape, in an apartment, etc. It might also be helpful to know that Leerburg, according to this DVD at least, trains German Shepherds, and he has worked with them in law enforcement. This definitely comes through in the attitudes and atmosphere of this DVD. If you're looking for that type of discipline, you might be interested in their other products. If not, I'd go with the Monks of New Skete instead.
