Recallers5.0 Video Contest Championship Round!

Posted on 06/06/14 42 Comments

Today is the day…our Championship round of Recallers Videos! The best of the best are now competing to be in the Top THREE!

Encore and Deer

Before we begin, I want to thank everyone for their votes and feedback….we all agree these videos were great. These top seven videos, as well as each and every video in the top 15, should be incredibly proud to have made the cut out of such a large pool. Voting was sooo close during Day 2 that we decided to add three of the five videos from that day!

These journeys have touched the hearts of not only the team here at Say Yes but our dog community as a whole! At the end of the day, every person that submitted a video to us showed that they were all winners  🙂

For those of you who haven’t joined us for the other days, please make sure to go back and view the videos (Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3)  Even though voting has closed for the previous days, the videos are all touching and worth the watch!

For the final day, we have the top voted on videos, out of these seven, the final three winners will receive some awesome prizes from our generous sponsors! These prizes total almost $500! A HUGE thank you to our sponsors, Zen-Tek, Tug-E-Nuff, and Back on Track! In addition we will randomly draw two people, from our more than 200 Recallers who submitted videos to our contest, who will also win the exact same prize package as our three winners! How COOL is THAT!

Here’s how YOU can be a part of the fun today!

Watch the seven videos below and vote for your 3 FAVOURITES!  The decision will not be easy, all of these videos are so darn good! Voting will stay open until 12 o’clock noon on Monday June 9th. Best of luck to all of our finalist and thank you to each of you for your help with this tough decision!

Today I am grateful for each of you who have taken the time to watch these videos and showed your appreciation for all of the hard work each of our participants put into them!

Here are those FANTASTIC prizes once again:

2) The choice of either a Cooling Coat or a Canine Quick Wrap from Zentek Clothing Company. A prize valued at over $100! I was so grateful I remembered to pack Feature’s Zen Tek  Cooling Coat at this years World Agility Open!

3) Back on Track Canada is donating a Back on Track crate liner! Back on Track offers apparel for many athletes, including dogs, humans, horses and more! Using the same technology from all other BOT products we have crate liners for various size crates. The liner can be used on its own or on top of other bedding. The liner provides the same great properties for dogs, keeping muscles and joints warm and supple for ease of movement before and after activities.

    Sherry has done an awesome job with these two dogs and her own. To bring two dogs back to America was certainly special. She has proved what kindness, patience, and love can do for our animals.

    OK, I give up. Where do I vote? I meant to vote for #1, #7, and #3 in that order.

    I could not find any place to do so, so I hope this will do.

    Susan, I think the Recallers’ philosophy is crystal clear in Nellie Marsh’s comment when I first posted my video on our Recallers FB page: “Fantastic! Look at that speed and drive when she heads off, wow! Wonderfully crazy” That’s it! Look at the great stuff going on, not the stuff you want to “fix.” Congratulations to every single person who made a video to celebrate their dogs, their training, and themselves! And to everyone who joins you in Do-land!

    To make a vote worthy video:

    Please! NO music at all

    actual VIDEOS, not just still photos

    SPEAK in the video

    Show the before and after of a dog that does not care to participate, to one that does.

    Sharon’s video had me in tears… You can see the passion she has about her dogs through the polished nature of her video. Not to mention how ADORABLE her jack is!! How can anyone resist that cute little crooked jaw? AW my heart just melts . Love it. She deserves victory

    I do not envy you having to pick these videos at all, I always love watching them – but it’s always difficult to make my pick. Fingers crossed everyone!

    Now that I have voted I’m trying to remember what the criteria was for getting my vote. Was I supposed to look for the learning aspect, creativity, story telling, comparisons, or the several hundred other things that were there? So much is put into each video it’s hard to compare them against each other.

    Susan and Recallers, Thank you for sharing your stories.
    It has been really interesting listening to the commentaries and watching the videos. It is amazing to see the relationships that are being/have been developed. Good luck to everyone on their continued journey.

    I think #4 showed the “how to” best and #7 would make a great Commercial.
    They were all very good and I do not envy your job of picking the winner. I know it is easier to let us vote, but in the end I think you should make the choice.

    All were great!! My vote went to the person I felt we dealt the biggest challenge, that of working with a dog who had been a research animal for it’s first 2 years. Really great results with that pup!! Hats off to all of you! Wonderful training and great videos!!

    Done. I voted. But like everyone else, it was hard to decide which ones are the best. They are all well put together. I have selected for the videos that bring across the message of the “Say Yes” method the best. So, putting aside the emotional tugs of some of the rescue dog stories, I have looked at the most convincing promotion of the teaching method itself.
    Good luck to all.

    Wow! That was tougher than I thought it would be. While I enjoyed some of the videos more than others as they were cleverly done. I tried to vote for the videos where the training was truly life changing for both the dogs and owners. As Susan mentioned everyone was a winner. Kudos to all the hard work for the participants of the recallers games and to Susan for instituting a program that works for all dogs regardless of whether they ever see the inside of the ring or not! Click…Treat! Well done!
