    Default Dog Training Dvd ?

    Can anyone recommend a dog training dvd?
    With the basics like step by step that we can follow along with at home if you know what I mean?

    Val bonney has an awesome DVD and book "Who's the Boss?" Its about basic through to advanced obedience. Also talks about pack structure etc.
    Bonnie's Dog Obedience & Care Centre - Reviews from the book
    hope that is of some help?

    That link takes you to her web site, and a review of her book. I can't see anything there about the dvd. I have a copy, so I know it exists. If you are intested in her methods, and can't find the dvd from her site, I'd be happy to chat to someone at my obedience club about finding you a copy (thats where I got mine).

    Hi J&B

    I like "really reliable recall" by Lesley Nelson
    Welcome to Dogwise.com

    and "Crate Games" by Susan Garrett.

    I can loan you copies via the dog club if you want. Send me a PM

    I'm looking to get another one called "Foundation Handling" by Greg Derrett - but that's more related to Agility handling, ie teaching the dog and handler to communicate properly.

    Thanks Hyacinth but thats ok, bought the dvd recommended in the first post off ebay so will see how that goes

    Btw we are taking a break from the dog club for a little while. We are working very hard at home together until we get some basic manners before we go back.
    Its working quite well so far and I think me and Banj go better when it is just us and we are really bonding.
    Once he is mastering the basics at home though and I get him a little more socialised with other dogs we will definitely go back.
    I just dont think its fair on everyone else and with the stretched resourses there I just feel like its best like this for now.

    They are working on getting more instructors. Someone even had a discussion about it with me. But it would be hard for me to do Tuesday nights. I told them they really need to be more active about it, like actually ask/invite people they think would be good instead of waiting for them to volunteer - cos they won't usually.

    Also the structure of the classes means there are less people in the middle of the month and more at the start and end (around graduation). So the next two weeks would be bad times to go - 29th june (graduation) and 6th july (first class in new grade), but the couple of weeks after that would be good, especially if it is slightly cold and wet. If it's very wet they will cancel but if it's only a little bit wet - occasional showers - then it will still be on.

    You could also send Rob (chief instructor) the occasional email with any issues you're having and ask for advice on how to address. You've paid your money - don't try to do it all alone all the time.

    Let us know what you think of that DVD too, I haven't seen that one.

    Also there are loads of mini training session videos on youtube. I especially like Ian Dunbar's stuff, you can find from Dogstardaily.com

    The only DVD you need is how to lead. The rest is easy. All you need to do is be confident in yourself.Cesar Millan | Achieving balance between people and dogs Anything by this guy is awesome, he is my idol. Just very calm person and very positive in everything he does. The course i did for dog psych used a lot of ceaser's advice (not officially apart of the course though).

    I like some of Cesar's stuff, like the approach and retreat method of getting a dog used to something it doesn't like.

    I hate some of his stuff, like the "alpha roll". All the dominance stuff seems a bit dodgy and unfounded to me and has lead to some disasterous treatment of dogs by people who don't really know how to read a frightened dog. Ie disciples of cesar who don't quite understand.
