Recallers 2015 Video Contest Day 1

Posted on 06/09/15 33 Comments

Day 1 of our Recallers 2015 video contest is here!

Recently we asked our Recallers 5.0 students to share with us how Recallers has impacted not only their lives, but the lives of their dogs. We have watched so many great videos, laughed, cried (and cried), and have been so impressed with our student’s achievements.

Having to pick just 15 videos out of such an amazing group was difficult, so we picked 16! Now we are hoping we can leave the rest up to you.

We need your HELP!

Over the next week we will be posting semi-final rounds for our readers to vote on. Every other day we will post a new set of videos for you to vote on. Pick your Top 2 of the bunch! We will end the contest with the “Finale” where we will take the top 2 videos from each day and they will go head to head to compete to be in the top 3!

We have very generous sponsors and AMAZING prizes! The top 3 vote getters here and two additional contestants chosen at random will receive a gift bundle totally more than $600 each! Sponsoring this year’s event are;

4MyMerles – a gift basket STUFFED with fabulous items including a personalized Recallers Embroidered Fleece Slip Leash, a Recallers Tote Bag, a Recallers Tee Shirt and a very cool dog tug toy!

    I have watched peoples amazing videos. I am just wondering where do I watch your recallers video to learn how to do it?

      Cathy, glad you enjoyed watching those videos. You can sign up for Recallers at BrilliantRecallers.com you can do that for free until the end of the week.

    Spectacular results to quite a few dogs that had unsavory behaviors the owners didn’t know how to correct. They were corrected with finesse and the dogs excelled in their new roles with their owners! Kudos once again to Susan Garret for a great program helping these dogs respond to their owners!!

    I loved Tamara’s because even among “positive” trainers, I see so many people yelling at their GSD’s. I don’t understand it. They are such biddable dogs! So nice to see a really positive training video with such great success.


    • Tamandra says:
      Monday, July 6, 2015 at 2:31am

      Thanks Andrea! I’m not sure all of them are so biddable, though. My last guy was much more so, and this guy definitely requires motivating to do what I want. He’s very forgiving of mistakes, though. I sure learn a lot from him!

    All the videos (and the stories) behind them are so inspiring – can’t wait to join Recallers the next time round!

    I don’t know what URL means but the video was great. I only wish we could have something like this here. Adelaide is a good 8hr return rive from here. A long way to go for a hour or so lesson. Any ideas about us getting to learn more about the program?

    The video about Maddy’s light obsession has received lots of wonderful (and totally unexpected!) comments over the last couple of weeks and I have felt quite overwhelmed reading them all – thank you all so much.

    Great videos! Leslie, your story is unique. Your patience coupled with Recallers is outstanding! What a transition! Loving these. Wasn’t able to make a vid this year, believe me, watching you all is priceless!


  8. Tamandra says:

    Thanks for the wonderful comments about my dog and I and our video!! I’m so honored to be chosen, let alone winning this round! Thank you all!

      Is that Emily Larlham in your video?

    All the videos were fantastic A couple made me cry in joy for the teams But Lesley’s triumph over light and Tamandra’s relationship development were so inspiring

    Tamandra – I’m speechless and humbled. Thank you for sharing these inspirational moments with us – tears are flowing!!!!

    I loved watching Pam and Abby! Training a dog that already had some pretty bad habits of running away and ignoring calls showed the true genius of this program! Wish I could vote for Abby again!


  12. Vicki says:
    Friday, June 12, 2015 at 9:26am

    I can’t believe how hard it was to choose and it is only the first day.


  13. Natalie says:

    Oh my goodness, all fantastic and I can empathise with Tamandra and Lesley as I have one of each of those dogs…shed a few tears watching those.

    What wonderful videos!! Feeling very inspired!

    Loved Tamandra’s!! What an inspiration she is and what a beautiful dog. They are going to go far together.

    Really liked Sylvia’s also. As a mommy of a Husky X BC, I know what it takes to train the Husky! My girl is 12 yrs. old and still cannot be fully trusted off leash. Great work!

    So many changed dogs…so much joy brought to all their human caregivers..Tamandra what determination you have…what a wonderful partner you now have…Lesley…you truly brought you pup joy…well done to all!!!

    Tamandra. Showed great desire to do lok for and do the best for her dog. Such a pleasure to watch.

    LEsley another great person who gave her all to help her dog, it is such a joy to see things come together.


  17. Deborah Harpur says:

    I voted for Tamandra because her video to me showed so much work to make her Justice a service dog. To do what all of us do everyday but in a different way due to her circumstances. Plus the joy in both her and her dogs face sealed the deal for me. I liked all of them.


  18. Sue Walters says:

    Lesley’s video made me cry. I have a springer too and sympathise. Well done for the progress made – hard work, patience, persistence but fun too!

    They’re all so good – it took me two days to be able to pick two, and even then I felt like I was awfully close to flipping a coin. Really terrific and I enjoyed watching each of them several times! Thanks for everyone’s hard work on these.

    All of these videos are amazing and were a pleasure to watch. Well done everyone – it was sure hard to pick only two!


  23. Cathie Jones says:

    All are terrific, but I was especially taken with Pam’s ability to train a rescue dog, not a puppy, known for running away.


  24. Shelley says:
    Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at 8:09am

    This happens every year…….I want to vote for three!!! They are all great, thank you everyone for making them and sharing your journeys. Tamandra your video made me cry tears of joy – stunning!

    Lesley’s video made me cry. That is the essence of recallers right there. It certainly changed that dog’s life. Just awesome 🙂

      I agree, I was choking up to see the video of that poor troubled dog and her light obsession. So heartbreaking – but such good work.
