    Default New puppy training DVD from Jim VanEngen

    Has anyone seen the DVD from Jim VanEngen of Right Start Kennels. It's for dogs 7 weeks to 7 months. I just watched it and its really nice. Shows real training situations with lots of different young dogs. The picture quality is Awsome. I've seen most young dog DVDs and this is the most realist and informational I've seen. You can see a clip on his website.

    We had a puppy with Jim and crew they are awesome. Thanks Jim,Craig and Brian for the great start. We are definitely buying the video and sending our next puppy to RSK for one of the best head start puppy school there is.

    What is covered in DVD? Is it a problem solving DVD or does it show his puppy training program?

    The video is not specifically his training program. He generally gets dogs at 6-8 months of age and this video is more about how to Start a puppy from 7 weeks to 7 months. There are a lot of issues covered as most of the dogs he used were not is his program. He wanted to use dogs that would have issues so he could show real live scenarios on what they would do in different situations. For instance one of the dogs would take off with the bird after he picked it up. They showed intro to live birds with puppy's and different things to get your puppy in the water.

    Overall it covers a lot of the basic issues we all run into with young dogs and how to get through them. It's worth the purchase for sure.

    Just went to check this out and found that it's 139.99......might have to sell my Hillmann DVD if I wanted to get this one..... It would be nice to be able to preview it first I think.

    I agree Jamee. I watched the promo clip and think if they were to post clips from the DVD that would help me separate with $139.00. Scott do you have a chapter list you would be willing to post?

    $ 140.00 FOR 1 nugget of information is a BARGAIN, let alone a whole video !!!!!

    12 years ago I was fortunate enough To have Jim and Judy Powers set me up to train with Jim for 3 days while I was breeding to Ram. To this day I still look at the notes I took.
    If you are committed to learning spend the money, it may save your future dogs some grief.
    Discipline is no excuse for a lack of enthusiasm !!

    My thoughts exactly. I spent I think $180 for a 2 day seminar by Danny and Judy. I have 8 pages of notes that I look back on every year.

    All I can tell you is that in my opinion its the best young dog dvd ive bought and seen. Its almost an hour and 30 minutes long. I watched it again last night. Its a cool video.

    From memory the chapters covered are, equipment, basic obediance no coller, started retrieving and this is the good one you get to see them chasing dogs that dont come back and how they fix that. In my mind worth the money alone. Weve all delt with that., intro to birds this was great., intro to marks in cover, teaching basic doubles, intro to long tought doubles, intro to water and more, intro to multiple entries on water. Like I said if you want a real puppy teaching dvd this is it. Well worth the money.
