Brilliant Recall Course Student Videos Contest Day 1

Posted on 03/17/11 69 Comments

I had a tough job so I am looking for some help for each of you.

It was nearly impossible to pick out the top 15 of nearly 200 amazing videos from the graduates of my 5 Minute Formula to a Brilliant Recall.  I was absolutely blown away by the creativity, enthusiasm, and courage it took to come up with these videos. And you guys really crushed it.

I watched every single video and they were all great. It was an international field, with videos coming from all over the world.  I wish I could pick the top 197 but I need to narrow it down so with my team’s help, we selected our finalists.

You will pick a winner from each group by voting in the poll below.  I’ll have more for you over the next 2 days. So 3 days and  total of 15 videos.  There will be 5 winners selected. Each of these lucking recallers are going to win a free pass into my next on line project.

Voting will close down at midnight (Toronto time aka New York time) on Sunday March 20th. We reserve the right to discount votes if evidence of tempering exists. In fairness to all of the hard work by each Recaller do not vote unless you have viewed each of the videos.

Today I am grateful for this amazing group of recallers that will forever be etched in my heart as my “first.”

    I liked them all, but chose the one that has all original (not copyrighted) songs, books, etc. Brilliant AND original!

    Like Suzanne, I too am not computer savvy and could not post a video.
    But after the Recaller course I am able to call off my girl from her #1, most rewarding behavior…fence running!! All I wanted was to be able to stop her mindless “ping-ponging” at the fence, I got so much more from this class! Thanks Susan for an excellent course!

    Could we make a recallers DVD soundtrack with 5 winning videos. Then we could download the videos onto our Ipods and they then become a motivational tool (power phrases etc). I put my movie onto my ipod so that I can watch it at trials to remember the things that I learnt in the recallers course. Poor Susan as if you dont have enough work to do.

    Kim’s is also nice – but it needs the small text ‘blurbs’ to be placed on their own page – they went by so fast I couldn’t read them – and I’m a FAST reader!

    Otherwise her text size and screen timing was good.

    I’m wondering, like Susan. If we were in RR version 1 and submitted a video, and I’ve replied to an email confirming my email address and Level last time, what else do I need to do, and when do I need to do it? Will I get an email telling me when I need to log in?

      @Deborah if you are the waiting list http://dogagilityblog.wpengine.com/recall-membership-closed/ you will be notified first. Some of the people on this list couldn’t get into the last course so they get the first shot. Anyone can sign up on that list now. Next I will mail to my newsletter peeps and then finally the word will go out here on the blog and on Facebook.

    Wow! Watching the Iggy video reminded me so much of my Petey and me! I love him with all my heart, and I have a lot of hope for him in agility and herding, but unless I can get him more interested in me rather than the rest of the world, we’re going to have a tough road ahead. When’s the next online course taking place?????

      @Rachel the course will open next week. It is unlikely I will be able to accommodate everyone in the class (I couldn’t last time around — in the end we had a waiting list:().

      My plan is to start next week and focus on some free training for everyone so that even if folk don’t get a spot in the class they will be able to start working toward changing their dog’s behaviour and building a better relationship.

    Thank you everyone for all the fab videos, I’ve spent alot of time this week watching them!
    I’ve also been rereading my journal of our time on the course, makes for interesting reading! We were playing like mad things! (it was the summer holidays here in the UK) I write so much about Bob shutting down, not wanting to play tug and worrying about what to do.
    Well I just wanted to say I no longer see this anymore! I think my attitude has changed, I no longer have to make it better! He no longer shapes me into getting the cookies out if he doesn’t want to play tug! (I loved Agile Border terriers video, ‘Anatomy of a brilliant recall’)
    We are a team! and I’m looking forward to Recallers 2 to help build on this.
    Thank you Susan!

    Susan,

    I have shared the links with my friends and many have emailed me that they are unable to vote (they are only seeing the current results).

    Did I do something wrong or is there a glitch somewhere?

    Thanks for your help, of course I’m hoping they will all vote for me and Jagger 🙂

    • Susan says:
      Thursday, March 17, 2011 at 3:41pm

      @Jenna the poll system tracks IP address so no other computer can vote if you are at the same IP address. That prevents people from deleting cookies and voting more than once. The problem is that only one vote for household with the same IP address. I imagine your friends are at the same work place therefore share the same IP address. Will have to get them to vote at home!

      @Tarah that is strange, it just played all the way through for me. Maybe too many people watching it right now? Dunno, not my expertise. Weird though. Maybe turn your computer off and on – – it sure is worth seeing the ending!

        Regarding the next Recallers’ course. A friend of mine signed up for the first go round. She said there was a lot of reference made to Rough Love and Crate Games, neither of which I have. So, if one doesn’t have or hasn’t read or viewed these are they going to be missing out on the course content?

      • Susan says:
        Friday, March 18, 2011 at 9:21am

        @Carol, having both of those resources would certainly enhance your experience as a Recaller but you absolutely can do the course without either of them as the daily lessons are explained in detail.

        Having said that owning both of those resources is certainly recommended to anyone who ones a dog or is about to get one. When you sign up for the Recallers course I will offer a way to purchase items at a discounted price.

    I hope you start this class at a time I can do it. I just missed the last one, and I will have surgery April 7th. But really. Surely I can do just 5 minutes of fun with my dog during that time, right? 🙂 Love reading about the class and what people are learning from it. Keep it up!

    Unfortunately it looks like I’m a little late to the party and hadn’t heard about your course until now. Recall around distractions is my dog’s weakest point — she’s too interested herding certain dogs around to recall reliably. Are you planning on hosting this online class again? Looking forward to the next announcement!

    Great videos! Looking good!

That will now be my mantra as with my Bichon Mitzy everything in the world is a cookie… except me! Now only to wait until the release of the Recallers 2.0- Cannot wait!

    They’ve also given me the motivation to get a BRILLIANT recall with my girl. Just spending the few minutes watching these videos has given me an idea of what I can do differently to get our recall from good to great.

    Can’t wait to see the others!

    So sorry I didn’t post a video- need to click my husband more and maybe he’ll finish the software upgrade that’s in progress. And, I missed a video opportunity with the beagle puppy yesterday but had a lovely recall off the neighbor’s dog at our fence! A send back out to look, perfect recall back. Another send and a 2/3 distance turn-on-a-dime recall. Love putting the money in for a wonderful payback!

      I like the cookie shirt Idea and the other sayings I have at the top of my head often is “Whose driving the bus” My BC is clear when she is trying to drive the bus like 90 MPH down the highway but my 11year old husky mix tries to drive the bus but he does it more like moving the bus around the parking lot a 5 feet every hour – in a way much hard to realize.

    This might be a very stupid question 😛 but if I decide to join The Five Minute Recall E-course next time, am I only “aloud” to play games with my dogs for 5 minutes every day?
    I usually play/train with them more (but none of of my dogs have a brilliant recall…)

      @Cecilia nope, no limit to the number of sessions you do per day if you are a real keener. However it is important that you keep these sessions to 5 minutes per day or less.
