The Ultimate Opportunity

Posted on 08/18/11 27 Comments

Today IS the Day!

Today is the day we start a two week blitz fundraising drive. But this isn’t anything like your neighbour’s kid selling plastic bowls for the phys ed department, this is the ULTIMATE win-win-win situation.

Earlier this week I started working on a new e-book I felt was desperately needed. Truth is, you may not realize you need it right now. But, the moment the need arises I promise the e-book will lower your blood pressure and give you peace of mind you would not find from any another non-pharmaceutical source.

“Flying Your Pet”

This all inclusive resource represents all that I have learned flying my dogs around the world over the past 20 years.

I have traveled with big dogs held in the baggage or cargo area and I have had my small dogs travel with me “in-cabin.”  

This e-book contains it all, including templates of ID Labels that you can copy directly to use when you fly with your own dog.

And hey, this isn’t just for those who may be travelling with a dog, all the save great information can be applied to flying with any pet you intend on traveling with you.

Even if you currently have no intentions of boarding a plane with your pet. Conditions change, our lives change and the day you do it, you are going to be thrilled you invested in this resource.

Buy it, print it out, keep a copy on your computer and a hard copy in your library. When you need it, it will be there.

It Is all a FUNdraiser!

And this e-book is a fundraiser. Every penny earned from the sales of this e-book will be donated to the Canadian Agility team flying to the World Championships this fall and our local Women shelter here in Hamilton.

Win-win-win. You win with a great resource, the team wins and the women’s shelter wins.

It’s A Bundle!

And if that isn’t cool enough I am bundling this e-book with the “Ultimate”  agility competitor’s e-book that has been put together by an amazing group of people. Members of our Canadian World Team, management staff (writing from the source of their own specialized talents) and friends (like Dave Munnings) have all contributed not only drills to improve your handling, not one skill sets to improve your dog but nutrition, mental prep and fitness tips (have you seen how good Carol Smorch looks lately?).

This 123 page, professionally laid out book truly is the

Ultimate Agility Competitor E-Book.”

Come Into My Inner Circle

And if the amazing content of these two e-books isn’t enough reason to buy, I have one more for you.

We are going to have a draw on Sept 1st 2011. For every “bundle” of these two e-books you buy, your name is going to be put into a lottery. The prize is something others paid $1000.oo to own. That is access into my exclusive “Inner Circle.”

Here you will have complete access to my entire Recallers course (yes this course is now closed and there is no other way to access it except through this draw), you get it all; the course DVD, the downloadable dog training MP3s for your ipod, the mini session on working through distractions, the coaching calls and more.

I could go on, but maybe I will save that for members of my Inner Circle to chime in their thoughts on being in this group (let’s hope they do!).

We have even increased your chances to win by offering you a way to earn 10 tickets into the Inner Circle draw by just purchasing 5 copies of these amazing e-books (hey you can donate those extra 4 copies to a Junior Handler or to a worker’s raffle at your next trial). You will find all the information you need right here on the blog.

The Ultimate E-Book offer, the Ultimate Inner Circle Draw

You get amazing content in these two e-books, you help two great causes and you get a chance to win your way into the Recallers Inner Circle. For those of you that are already into the Inner Circle we are going allow you to “pay it forward.” Who would know better than you the value of the gift you will be giving (or selling:)). I am certain you will be able to find some well deserving person that would love to take advantage of your prize!

For those of you that need the address, here is the link once again http://dogagilityblog.wpengine.com/ultimate-ebook-offer-2/

Today I am grateful for the many hands that contributed their time and talents to make these two e-books beyond amazing. Okay now it is your turn, click on the link to become part of the win-win-win!

    Sounds like a worthwhile Susan Garrett project- I’ll buy the e-books. You had my old email address so I changed it on the Post a Comment above. Do I need to do something else?? kay

    Just downloaded. It will take time to read the ~150 pages of great tips that, based on my experience, no doubt will continue to change my life and my relationship with my 4-legged BFFs. Such as Page 12 of the flight handbook — info worth it’s weight in GOLD (it made me think of a dog that got loose on the airport runway here recently). You always have the greatest ideas to make everything so logical and simple and SAFE! I find myself muttering “Of course, why didn’t I think of that?” every time I read your books, blogs, watch your videos, webinars, coaching calls…Thanks for sharing! LOVE IT!

    Oh well we are all just Susan Garrett info junkies so of course we all need it!!! 🙂

    Inner circle is fab, it’s not just all the great info though, it’s being surrounded by brilliant, motivational, caring people….I could go on with a massive list of adjectives you know! I’m talking about the entire group over there that’s been created not just the big two!!! And you of course Jason!

    We are learning SO much……

    Over the years I’ve gotten a number of pups from arctic Canada and Greenland. When possible, I’ve gone to get them — an excuse to visit a fascinating place. About 10 years ago, I went for a visit to Pangnirtung and brought back a litter of 6 pups. It was quite the adventure! Like many of you, I wish I had known more about shipping pups, though sometimes in the arctic, “the usual rules do not apply.” (For some snapshots of shipping 6 pups in 2 crates from an arctic village, see: http://www.home.earthlink.net/~sylviafeder/pups.html )

    I’m looking forward to reading the e-books; as a member of the Inner Circle, I can already vouch for their quality! 🙂

    I have no plans to fly my dogs in near future but it always pays to be prepared, just thinking about flying with the dogs makes me faint. I know ebooks are going to be another excellent addition and since I am already in Inner circle all I can say it has been life changing journey for me.

    Oh phew, I was afraid it would be expensive but $30 I can do. Just barely, but looking forward to it! What a year! What a life!

    I ditto that, TawnyHill! It is one of the BEST decisions I made when I joined Recallers 2.0 to upgrade to Inner Circle. I was holding on tight to the money, but once I let go and said “YES”, I’ve been on the most wonderful journey with my BC I ever thought possible. So GOOOD LUCK winning the prize! You to will “SAY YES” to this positive joy training with Susan Garrett!!!

    I was leery when my UK breeder was going to ship my foundation bitch, but she was so busy with other stuff that she couldn’t manage anyone coming over (mother with hip replacement, one premee litter, 2 litters from neighbour breeder because of health emergency) but she assured me that she had done this many times and I didn’t have to worry. My puppy arrived in a Varikennel, with 2 water cups and instructions to keep filled, a funnel attached so they could be filled, and the paperwork full of instructions on what to do when, and each step had to be signed off by a supervisor. She was shipped on a direct flight from London, and when I picked her up at the airport, I was worried….. but there was no need. When I got her out of the crate, she bounded out of the car (on leash) and onto the grass for a pee, and then I brought her into the yard at my friends who were watching the other 3 and the cat. I let her loose in the yard, and she ran over to the other dogs… to the amazement of my friends. She wasn’t at all traumatized, but then my breeder used a really good animal shipper, and they even called me to tell me how she would be handled, how they would stay with her until she was put on the plane, and they called me to say the flight had taken off and all systems go, wishing me the best with the cutest puppy they had seen in a while.

    I wish there was a better way to ship dogs. If the airlines were to lose a row or two in a percentage of their planes, put in a separate ventilation system, enclose the area which could be shelved to hold different levels of crates, using lexan or whatever, and that way, the dog could fly in the cabin, even big dogs, safely, and they could be preboarded, and deplaned last, and everyone would be happy… no bitching about allergies (I am allergic to nuts, but they still serve them, and don’t get me started about undisciplined,screaming kids!), and dog owners would be happy because they could check on the dog if necessary, … to keep the dogs calm, they could use 1 way mirrors like they do in cop shows so that we can see the dog, but the dog can’t see us.
    I do dream in colour.

    Thank you!! I am moving my two adult dogs (and possibly a new puppy!!!) over to Scotland next year and am worried already. Great information and a ticket into the best drawing ever!! What more could one ask for!

    I just finished purchasing these, and they are a MUST HAVE! I can’t wait to get them printed off for my nightly reading. Cheers to everyone responsible for such a quality product at a very reasonable price!

    Oh, I’ll get the book. But please stop teasing me with the Inner Circle stuff. I might cry from disappointment if I don’t win 😉

    Seriously, Susan. It’s time to open up another Recaller’s. At least let me sign up already.


  17. Mary M says:

    I was waiting with baited breath for these books!!!!

    I would highly recommended the Inner Circle, we have a great group of people all supporting one another with some great monthly challenges and online seminars from Susan and Lynda…..plus this way you sort of get to be in this group for free…can’t pass that up!

    Wonderful idea. I look forward to my own copy! Just a question…. If I want to purchase a bundle and donate it to a dog rescue raffle, how do the ebooks become available to that organization? (Sorry… I’m not terribly techie!)

      Hey that’s a great idea! I already know who and what I’m going to donate to!

      My puppy flew overnight to me and had one stop before I got him. He bounced out of his crate and was just fine….however the thought of me having to fly him as an adult dog somewhere is very daunting. This will be a great resource as I would really like to fly him to a vacation in the future and I’ve been looking at a trip to California too.

    Thanks for the opportunity to support the Canadian team as well as provide us an opportunity to get these 2 ebooks.
    I so wish I had known about your Recallers class earlier as I would have participated in that program in a heart-beat.

    We travel with dogs in cabin allot. As professional ahndlers we do try and make it to the National Specialties for the breed. I have also shipped puppies in cargo and bitches to be bred. Yes it is one of the most difficult and stressfull things. I recently shipped a bitch out of DTW, I live in Chatham. I had to go to the US to get a health certificate issued by a US vet as I as shipper and the dog were Canadian residents. This is a recent requirement from USDA. I could ship over the border and pay a broker fee, plus try and find a straight flight. Also those heat embargos. Only a few airports have full climate control such as Atlanta. The timing and planning will make you crazy. Neve rmind the stress of sending off a very important part of your breeding program or someones new puppy already loved.

    Sound like another awesome offer from Susan! I am going to buy them now:)

    thanks for all you do for the agility community.

    Last year, I flew my puppy home in the cabin with me from Dallas to Atlanta. It went beautifully and we had a trip together that will be a lifetime memory. BUT it was like planning the invasion of Normandy to get everything coordinated (the puppy came from Houston and I live two hours away from the Atlanta airport). This book would have been a huge help!

    thanks for this opportunity Susan, and for all the information you share to help us all become better handlers/dog lovers 🙂

    I wish I had this before I flew out to Oregon a couple of weeks ago to pick up my new BC. The flights home were fine, but I was panicked when I was flying out because I didn’t know what to expect traveling with a puppy through security and in-cabin. Thanks, and I hope this brings a lot of fund raising for the Canadian team.

      Did you happen to fly to Oregon to get a Hidden Valley Pup? Would love to here your experience since I will be doing that in the spring of 2012.

        I flew in to get a Hillcrest Pup. My biggest concern was feeding and pottying the little guy. It was scheduled to be 13 hours between showing up at the airport in Portland and getting home to NY. The first thing that had me nervous was the size of the carrier. I flew Delta and they said the maximum size was 18″x12″x12″ and if any of the dimensions were greater than 1/2″ larger and I was selected to have the carry-on measured I wouldn’t be able to get on. 2 people loaned me theirs that were just a little longer, but I was afraid to use them so I purchased my own for $69. No one at any of the 3 airports even looked at it…I could have saved $69. The trip I choose was 3 flights (Portland – Minneapolis – JFK – Syracuse). I was afraid to just use 2 flights (Portland – Atlanta – Syracuse), because the first one would have been Portland to Atlanta, with 2 hours at Portland for security check and boarding, then over 5 hours in flight. I thought 7 hours would be too long for a wee pup. People recommended I get wee-wee pads and take him in to the bathroom at the terminals to try to potty him. He didn’t even look at them and just wanted to play. I used the “family assist” bathrooms in Minneapolis and it was very, very clean and large. We spent two 15 minute play sessions in there, since the pups can’t be out of their carriers in the terminals. As soon as we got off each plane I gave him a few pieces of kibble and a little bit of water. Of course then the 3 hour overlay in JFK turned in to 8-1/2 hours.

        To my amazement, the little guy slept on every flight, didn’t make a peep at any gate, and didn’t go to the bathroom for 19 hours. Once we finally arrived in Syracuse it was an hour drive home.

        All of my worry was for absolutely nothing. We got home at about 5:30am. I took him out on leash after being home for about 30 minutes, were he finally peed. I put him back in his carrier right next to my bed, we slept for 5 hours before getting up and greating the day and his new brothers. 2 weeks later it’s like he’s been with us since he was born.

        Having this e-book would have been a little help for the traveling I did. I fretted about not getting an aisle seat and asked someone to switch with me. And since their partner had the window seat, they were more than willing to oblige. But like Susan said, the middle seat has the most room, as I found out during my second flight 🙂

        Good luck with your new little guy and trip 🙂
