Recallers 4.0 Video Contest Winners Announced!

Posted on 02/19/13 18 Comments

The time has come to announce the winners of this years Recallers Video Contest!  We’ve had a great couple of weeks watching all of your videos, choosing our favorites, and reading your comments.  Once again, we’d like to thank everyone who took the time to submit a video, our sponsors, Agility Q and DogWise, and all of you for voting and interaction during our contest.  As a token of my gratitude, I have a special treat for you, which you can find at the end of this post! 😉

All of you talented filmmakers out there made it V-E-R-Y difficult for us to narrow it down to that top 15.  Congratulations to the videos that made it to our top 15 and top 6!  It was a huge accomplishment to be picked out of 260 videos, and each one of your videos had something that spoke to us, which is why you made it that far!  For those of you just joining us, here’s a recap:  Over the last few weeks, we have run a video contest for the alumni of our Recallers 3.0 course.  We received over 260 videos, and we narrowed those videos down to a top 15.  We then asked YOU to vote, and our voters chose 2 of their favorite videos per day for 3 days.  Finally, only 6 videos remained, and those videos went head-to-head yesterday.

And thus, our 3 video contest winners were born!

Now, it’s officially time to announce those video winners!

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Diane Lewis, Sheri Grantham, and Sharon McMahon for your winning videos!  Your videos touched our hearts and so did your stories! 

Diane, Sheri, and Sharon will receive an awesome prize pack totaling over $300 in value.  Check out what they’ve won:

1.) Each winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to DogWise.com – an online retailer of “All things dog!”  DogWise.com sells everything from books, to dog show supplies, eBooks, DVDs, and so much more!  If you have a minute, check out the website – I know you’ll agree that this gift certificate will be TOO EASY to spend!  🙂

dogwise.com - a sponsor of the Recallers 4.0 video contest

2.)  Each winner will also receive a prize bundle from Agility Q totaling $100 in value!  Each prize pack will include a harness, all-in-one leash, and rainbow wraps!  Agility Q specializes in custom dog agility collars and leashes that are both soft AND stylish!  And the best part – they are personalized and custom made for your dog!

3.)  A $100 gift certificate to one of my online courses or live events at Say Yes!  Say Yes has been busy lately working on course openings for 2013, so I know you’ll have plenty of opportunities to use this credit in the coming months!

Did you miss yesterday’s voting?  Check out Diane, Sheri, and Sharon’s videos from yesterday’s post!  We hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

And now, as a big THANK YOU for helping us out during the video contest, I have a special treat for you!  Tomorrow morning, I will be launching my first webinar preceding the re-opening of Recallers 4.0: Managing VS. Inspiring Behaviour. And I want to give you a sneak peak of that webinar!  You’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see the whole thing, but keep your eyes peeled on your email and we’ll notify you when the full-webinar has gone live!

In the meantime, here’s your sneak preview!  🙂

    Congratulations to all 3 winners. But that doesn’t mean the rest of the 257 videos, or the Recallers who didn’t submit a video (me included), don’t deserve a congratulations to putting that extra effort in for our beloved pets. Let’s all keep up the awesome work, thanks to Susan’s wonderful motivation and inspiration. Yay for all of us!!

    I really enjoyed watching the videos this year. I tried to watch them all, but with over 200 I’m sure I didn’t. So much joy and so many good stories.

    The final 3 I think were very representative of Recallers. Diane’s video was so true! It was me during and after our move. Sheri’s covered all of us who have had shy or frightened dogs. Sharon’s before and after also touched home — just swap the dog and handler. Congratulations to the three of you on your well deserved win!

    And, thanks to Susan for continuing the contest. It is so inspiring and a great motivator.

    Thank you all for taking the time to do the vids.. Inspiring! As a potential “new” recaller, you have given me a great flavour of what I, and my dog, will hope to learn… I’m really impressed with you all. Thank you.. And thank you to Susan, too!

    Wow it is such an honor just to be included and was great fun watching everyone’s videos. Each journey was unique and yet had a common thread of discovery, joy and relationships.

    Thanks for all the votes, to Susan for making it possible, and to the sponsors who are so generous!
