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. 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!

My husband and I recently adopted a five year old terrier because our ten-year-old son wanted a dog. I didn't want to start with a puppy, but I was also a little worried that Pepper might be too old to train. While online we found the Train Your Dog DVD. The attractive packaging caught my eye (my husband, the graphic artist, liked it too) as well as how much info it contained (at a very reasonable price) so we ordered it. I can't say enough good things about this DVD. First of all it's organized so that you can begin with basic commands like Sit, Down and Come. Each skill is a separate button to click, so you can easily watch a single command over and over as many times as needed. The trainers are great, these women explain things very clearly and their upbeat personalities seem to put the dogs at ease. They are also fun to watch since they work with a variety of breeds, and my son was very excited to try it all out. With our help, so far he has taught Pepper Sit, Down, Stay (at least a short one so far) and we're working on Come and also Leave It, since Pepper wants to grab just about everything in the house. I thought at first we would need to hire a trainer but after looking through this DVD I really think we can handle it on our own. We had looked around at other DVDs and tapes but this one is really clear, straightforward and has all the essentials plus a lot of bonus materials. If you're looking for an easy, inexpensive way to train your dog, get this DVD, you won't be sorry.

I am an aspiring dog trainer, so I have seen MANY videos and DVDs. I have read many books on the subject of dog training as well. I have read many of Nicole Wilde's books in particular(which, by the way,I really benefitted from) and that is what prompted me to purchase this DVD (because she is one of the trainers featured in it). Nicole is a well known Certified Pet Dog Trainer and Author (well known amongst many professional dog trainers all over the USA)and she has become a favorite of mine! This DVD is great! It is so well organized and it makes training so EASY. You don't have to watch a whole DVD in one sitting. Instead, browse the menu for the behavior you want to train your dog... then select it with your remote control. Watch it with your dog and then practice it (Viewing and practicing one command might take you 20 minutes or so). It is broken up into many sections to make training EASY, EFFECTIVE (as far as results AND time)...more so than ANY training video I've ever seen! Using the techniques that Laura and Nicole demonstrate for you will build a loving bond with your dog AND your dog will think learning is fun... which, I believe, is the very BEST part of this type of training! You won't regret purchasing this DVD! I think your dog will thank you too!
