    mlp,

    I'm anxious to hear your impressions of the dvd set. I like the concept of following the dogs for 3 years as they progress through training. I think the differences (US vs. UK) in training techniques as well as the differences in training goals would be interesting to see as well. I agree with Jennifer H. that watching good looking dogs in beautiful countryside might make the purchase worthwhile and any nuggets of wisdom would be a bonus!

    I watched the first two dvd's lasnight. The first dvd is mostly starting with a young pup and the rights and wrongs of early age. As I don't have any dogs under 4 years I am mostly interested in the advanced training which is starting more in the 2nd dvd. He has some good training advice and shows working through some interesting problems with young dogs. I am anxious to watch the 3rd dvd tonight , as they say it's now getting down to the nitty gritty

    So, where is that list of the FTCH dogs this "guru" fellow made in the UK? Titles is titles, as they say. Very curious as to how many titles it takes to be a "guru."

    Yeah, you want to know if he has any pelts on the wall.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    If each CD has a bottle of Jameson taped to the case I think I could make it through the series. After watching it and drinking I'd be training using my Irish voice......oooooo-ver? bahh-ak!....

    I taught mine to jump hurdles (low then high hurdles) when I was doing heeling work at the high school track. That was STUPID I can't keep him inside a 4 foot fence, now it takes 6.

    Not saying they do it better or necessarily know more than the US experts, I haven't even seen the DVDs, but I'll bet there are things to be learned from anyone who is successful at what they do. Especially if the scenery is REALLY pretty!

    I agree with this. I enjoy learning about training dogs from anyone. I own most of the well known training videos and have learned good things from all of them. I just ordered this one and will look forward to learning something new. Thanks for posting this.
