Has anyone viewed Jackie's "Sound Beginnings" tape or DVD for puppies?

I have a new arrival coming in early December, and thought I would look at new material on raising puppies.

I would love to hear/read any and all comments on this.

I haven't seen it, but I've heard only good things. I have a 9 week old puppy & I've been meaning to order it. Now this will prompt me. If you haven't ordered it yet-don't. I'll send you mine before you get your puppy.

Another good one for puppy owners is the one Debra Folsom of Hightest Retrievers made. "QUICK START Retriever Puppy Training." It's a good 'un. No I have no financial interest.


Also there is the one that Shawn Dustin made. His puppy one is the best of the series IMO. No financial interest here either.

lablover, When i first started dog training, the first tape i purchased was Jackie's Sound beginnings tape. Not only did it help a guy who didn't know anything, it set the stage for lessons the dog was soon to learn. To this day, i still believe that it is one of the best videos in my training library for young dogs.
If you have a new pup and are looking for ways to prep him or her for future training, i would definitely recommend getting that tape.

Good luck

Did anyone see the little video clip posted a week or two ago with the pup lining and casting to paper plates with a treat on them? I wish I had done that.

You can bet that was not the first time the pup had seen that.

I think it's great for someone that is starting their first pup. I did not see anything "new" to me.
