    I am a proponent of your techniques. However I find that your answers to problems are often generic and thus lacking implementing details. Case in point is when Trina asked how to apply some of your principles to training her dog to appropriately interact with cats. This is a much needed module….nobody addresses it.

    I think it is really, really mean to make us choose between them. I’ve never had this problem before -usually in judging SG videos’there is one that I pick. But this time- all are so inspirational.

    I cried with joy through each of them. I strongly recommend that this time ALL of them are number 1. Each one makes me a better person and companion for my dog just by these folks sharing their love, determination and joy in the process of becoming a team.

    I love watching success stories. I even hog-tied my negative husband into watching some of these. Although he wanted to add to the list of things that makes a dog go deaf (earwig, small beetle, pine needle dropping, a dog standing up three blocks over) on one of the videos he finally admitted that he can see some changes in our crazy dog even though she has so far to go. When I first heard of Susan Garrett I would have immediately joined Recallers but it wasn’t available. So in desperation I joined the high dollar H360, then Puppy Peaks. As soon as possible I will be using up a small inheritance to join Recallers as well. I knew I would be over my head with H360 but I really needed to be part of something and it forced me to at least start. The information is totally amazing there and I haven’t even scratched the surface! Then Puppy Peaks has given me a little more direction. But after months we are still in “Leash Prison”. However, we have built on Nikko’s joy of being on things and now she is even liking being in things (we have a canvas organizing container she jumps in, sits, stands, then balances her front feet on the edge…so cute). I can see that she has developed an understanding that she has to offer behaviors. It is fascinating. Now I’m still not as fun as the great outdoors…or even an earwig…but I feel confident that with Recallers we can eventually GET OUT OF JAIL! So excited!

    Those were all such great stories and videos!!!!!! They all touched my heart and even made me feel emotional. They were all so great for different reasons. It was really hard to decide! What a connection we all have….Susan Garrett has helped so many dogs and their people get together. Truly a Life well spent. 😀

    It was a hard choice – these videos are wonderful – some made me cry and everyone was working though real challenges.

    These students are incredible!

    Thank you for sharing.

    Every single video is SUPER! Just because one video technique is better does not really make their journey “better” or more sucessful, I feel every video you showed was fantastic, from the point of view of the JOURNEY with their dog!!
