Transformations in Dog Training: The 2016 Recallers Video Contest Winners

Posted on 07/01/16 11 Comments

The results of our 2016 Recallers Video Contest are in! Over the past week, you have narrowed down the fifteen  wonderful videos in our finals to the top three. Each dog we bring into our home presents us with new challenges, we get frustrated, we may even break down, but for the sake of that dog (that we have established that each of us is “oh so crazy about”), we push through those challenges to get to a better place. Our video contest celebrates each and every person committed to making the best life possible with the dog they love so much.

Our Heartfelt Thanks

Thank you to everyone who submitted a video, and to everyone who has shared support for the stories that touched them most. We also want to shout out a very big THANK YOU to our amazing sponsors who this year went above and beyond to help us celebrate the efforts of dog lovers the world over.

    Watching these trainers work with their dogs, present problems, time their rewards is all beneficial to me as I learn the system.

    Oh my GOODNESS!!! If Aditi can train all the street dogs in Mumbai, I can certainly quit whining and train my one little stubborn pup! These are so inspiring!

    Such professional looking videos. No chance of me producing one like that so I’ll just get on with the training.
    The street dogs video had me in tears. What a fantastic achievement.

    The links to complete Day 1, 2, &
    3 videos connects to Handling 360 contest, NOT Recallers.

    Ithought you’d like to get tech support to fix it.

    Thanks for the inspiring video contest!

    These are terrific videos. The dog training is excellent, but I am in awe of the technical and creative skills in making a video. I am practicing that. Of course I will re-enroll in recallers, and will try for a video next year. Wish I could have made one because Recallers needs to be promoted to all. The games are so much fun!

    Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS to the winners!
