    I am watching it now. Can't say as I have come across anything new - yet. But, very useful information for the person with their first puppy.
    Competition does not build character - It reveals it.

    I have seen the results of JVE up close and personal in the last couple of dogs that Lanse has had with them, Rosa,Leeza, Nora all hit the ground running, and the latest is a one eyed no tail dog that Lanse jokingly refers to as "Cyclops", but Lee has two Qual seconds and is so much fun to train and be around,He is a handful, he doesnt know that he is somewhat handicapped and thats because JVE never treated him that way

    I cant vouch for the actual DVD but am sure it will be in my library sooner or later

    Jim is regarded as one of the premier young dog trainers in the country. As long as that came through OK, the DVD has to be good.

    I just finished it and I really like it!

    It showed lots of mistakes and the things we can do correct these mistakes. A great purchase in my book.
