Day 1 of Our Handling360 Video Contest Has Arrived

Screen Shot 2016-01-18 at 10.48.20 AM

We at Say Yes LOVE our video contests. Every entry is inspiring and each one highlights the wonderful relationship between dogs and the people who love them. My team and I sit down and watch each and every video and I can tell you none of us wants it to end.

There are so many great stories that it is nearly impossible for us to narrow it down to just 15 finalists. But, we did it… now we leave the really hard decisions to you…pick the winners!

We need your help… here’s how it works.

Each day for the next three days we will post a new set of videos in a semi-final round for you to vote on. Pick your top 2 of the bunch from each of those three semi-finals. We will end the contest with the “Finale” at the end of this week where we will take the top TWO videos from each day and to go head to head to compete to be in the top three. Be sure to check out the Day 2 and Day 3 videos and cast your vote.

Our AMAZING Prizes!

We have very generous sponsors how have donated some serious kick-butt prizes this year. The top three finalists and two additional random contestants will receive a fabulous gift bundle that includes all SIX prizes…how cool is THAT!

    All were truly inspiring! Was tough to choose. Decided Sandra was the choice as I know how hard it is to help a dog who has fear issues after an attack. Second was Laura! VERY inspirational and lots of super ideas!

    Just to say that the two videos I voted for are so great . It is heart warming to see these people show their love for their dogs by helping them either back into enjoying life again or simply giving their pup the opportunity to experience life and all it’s joys. It is great to see really great trainers giving them the skills to achieve their goals. The world is a great place when these people are in it. B
