Recallers 3.0 Video Contest Voting – Day 1

Posted on 11/20/11 44 Comments

Over the last few weeks, we have run a video contest for previous members of Recallers 2, asking them to make a video about their experience with The Five Minute Formula to a Brilliant Recall.  The response was incredible!  We had over 250 videos submitted, and your creativity and enthusiasm for our course was amazing…I am overjoyed to see how many people and dogs have been positively affected by this training, because that was my number one goal in creating this course!

Needless to say, narrowing these amazing videos down to just 15 was difficult…in fact, it was impossible.  We found it just too difficult to choose, so we actually ended up choosing 16 finalists.  And now I need your help!

We will be posting the videos on my blog for the readers to vote on.  The voting will be open for 4 days, and each day you can vote for your favorite video!

We will be choosing 5 winners, and each winner will receive an amazing prize-pack  of “my favourite things” worth close to $500!

1) $100 gift certificate from In the photo below with Feature, I am wearing an iPup jacket and bamboo pants (with the reflective “Just Run”) from Itzyu. I totally love how this clothes fits and wears:

    They were all 4 wonderful. It was such a touch choice. Really makes want to do this, because I have the ultimate student for the program – a Catahoula/Terrier mix that is distroying my aussies’ good manners.

    WOW these are all really great.

    Amazing vidoes! I had a very hard time choosing one. Everyone of the videos explains exactly what I went through with Mindi and accomplished taking the Recallers 2.0 Course. I am soooo excited for Recallers 3.0…..Thank you Susan and everyone that makes these online classes happen!!!!!

    Enjoyed all the videos. They present a clear picture of what happens when you enroll in the Recaller Course by Susan Garrett.
    THINK: what do I want? A well mannered pet & companion, an agility team, an obedience team, a fly-ball team, field team……
    PLAN: How do I get there? Take the online Recaller 3.0 course.
    DO: Take action! Train 5 minutes a day with innovating games that are fun for you and your dog.
    Thanks to Susan you can have it all!

    Well, now I should be watching your webinar, I paid for it, and yet your site does not recognize my email (has not changed in ages) nor my password (has not changed and was not asked for it earlier).
    So I’m totally frustrated and will post comments here because I set aside this evening to watch it, cannot watch it tomorrow morning -I have to work..
    I guess I’ll go off and eat chocolate!
    Frustrated, very much so,


    • Melissa says:

      Hi Jane!

      Actually, the webinar is located here:

      I think you are probably trying to log into the old Recallers site, which is closed now to to everyone but Inner Circle members.

      I know you’ve missed a lot of it, but you can still log on now and see some! 🙂


  7. Jane Harding says:

    Great videos, I echo the comment, hard to decide which one…but they all make the point,, it’s well worthwhile. I’ve signed up for Recallers 3 for my new CRAZY puppy, call name RAZZIE!


  8. Brenda says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 9:21pm

    Oh my goodness! I had a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes as I watched these videos. The videos caused my to look at my dog and think…that could be us! It was so difficult to choose just one from the four. So difficult. When and where will there be another Recallers class for beginners? Wow!


    • Kathy Blough says:
      Monday, November 21, 2011 at 11:18pm

      Brenda, “Recallers 3.0” that you’ve been hearing about is for anyone. The “3.0” just means it’s the 3rd time it’s been offered, and with some improvements. There are no pre-requisites!


    • Sydney says:
      Monday, November 21, 2011 at 11:21pm

      A new Recallers course is beginning now. Read Susan’s blog a few days ago for a link and more information.


  9. Kari says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 9:06pm

    All of them are great! Too hard to choose! THe videos are making me so excited for recallers 3!


  10. Karen says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 6:57pm

    I have loved watching these videos, and would love to do these courses myself (this is the first time I’ve heard of them). Voting for one video was really tough!

    How can I get to enroll for this training? Must I wait for the next time that Recallers 1.0 comes up, or is it always available on demand? I really would like to enthuse my relationship with my puppy too.


    • Tabatha says:
      Monday, November 21, 2011 at 8:44pm

      Karen, Recallers 3.0 is about to start, and you can definitely enroll! The number just means that this is the third time the course is being offered, it’s not a level and there are no prerequisites. 🙂


      • Karen says:
        Monday, November 21, 2011 at 11:12pm

        Thanks Tabatha,
        That’s really good to know, I will try to find the enrollment link for Recallers 3.0

  11. Meg says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 4:42pm

    While very difficult to choose—–the best part to remember is—THEY ALL ARE WINNERS —IN THEIR DOG’S/HUMAN’S EYES!
    Beautiful work!
    Meg 🙂

    Susan: The site has a bunch of broken links on it.. I even tried emailing them and it wouldn’t work.. Just thought you might like to know..


  13. Sydney says:

    Shelley you always have a way of putting ones thoughts/feelings into such beautiful words!


  14. Shelley says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 1:14pm

    Denise I wanted to do two as well!

    All of them are great videos.

    Susan when you opened your heart and created recallers, you gave dog training a soul. Thankyou for creating something so special with such special people.x


    • brittsdeux says:
      Monday, November 21, 2011 at 1:19pm

      Well said Shelley! It’s as if all of us who were stumbling around in the dog training wilderness have found a home at last.


    • Susan says:
      Monday, November 21, 2011 at 1:44pm

      Shelley, you made me tear up. I am honoured to think I may have been a part of so many dog owner’s journeys. And yes I do agree, I am blessed to be surround by some very special people.


    • Katarina says:

      Still remember how you asked ”Can I touch you through my computer screen?”in first presentation you did for Recallers 1.0. Boy oh boy, did you do just that! There was a little uproar on FB when you said recall=relationship. I think I can safely attest, that it’s true.


      • Susan says:
        Wednesday, November 23, 2011 at 7:18pm

        Wow Katarina you are so true. It was that “uproar” that spurred me to create that first Recallers course to prove to people if we can improve our relationship with our dogs we will improve our recall. I remember writing that line and really not knowing if teaching this way would be as effective as face to face training. When I see Recallers on my trips to Europe, Australia, NZ it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt this was the best thing I could have ever done. People who I had never met face to face before have an amazing grasp of our program all because of “touching them through my computer screen.”

    These are great. Gave me even more ideas to use in my crate games. Impossible to choose. I don’t know how you ever even narrowed it down. Hats off to these contributors. I’ll have to warch again later to decide.


  18. Birgitta Nyberg says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 12:24pm

    I was impressed by the videos and I am eager to try myself.


  19. brittsdeux says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 12:01pm

    Pick only one? Impossible! They are all four wonderful. Everyone in my office is agonizing over having to choose just one! Good work — very inspiring!


  20. Debra Jones says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 11:30am

    Watching these videos just gives me more ideas for a POA! Love watching….hate deciding…. Awesome job all of them!

  22. Sydney says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 10:59am

  23. Chris Spencer says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 10:47am

    Excellent videos. Everyone one of them deserves accolades and some form of recognition for making the cut! I agree – it is really difficult to choose.

  28. Esther says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 5:57am

    Ouf, choosing from these four was already amazingly difficult. They’re all winners to me. Can’t imagine how hard it was to make a choice out of more than 250…


  29. Susanne From says:
    Monday, November 21, 2011 at 3:54am
