Today we officially announce our winners from our recent Puppy Peaks video contest. I just have to say that the competition was intense. We had so many great videos that of the three of my “faves to win” didn’t even make the finals!!!  Everyone who entered a video in the contest is a big winner – a winner for taking action, for inspiring their dogs and of course for inspiring our entire community!

As this was a “contest,” there was meant to be only six winners (with one Grand Prize winner). Three winners where selected via the voting here on the blog and three were to be randomly selected. Here is the thing, I am about criteria when I am training my dog but I am also flexible enough to relax criteria when I am so inspired. 

With that in mind . . . I have been inspired and so I am altering my criteria for the winners here. Rather than just three winners on the blog, we are extending the same gifts to the entries of our top FOUR videos. Each of these people will get a 30-minute private lesson with me along with a few other amazing prizes. The Grand Prize won by Megan Meade includes TWO hours of training with me (online, over the phone or in person) plus a Kindle loaded with 10 Susan Garrett ebooks (some of which have never been released to anyone EVER before).

But that is not all. Because I was so inspired by each of the videos, I decided all entries need a prize so all of our participants are going to be given an invitation to a private online session with me . . . just for this group. Any questions you were planning on asking during a one-on-one with me can be answered in this group “coaching call.” So everyone is an extra big winner!

Now onto the “random” winners:  From the list of all of the people who submitted videos we did a random drawing (old school style) and videoed the process. Winners announced in the video clip below!

Today I am grateful for the enthusiasm and information that was shared in each of the great Puppy Peaks videos submitted. What I learned, is when I share information my audience likes to see my struggles and the path I take to overcome them. Thanks for that feedback, you can be certain there will be more of that on the new Puppy Peaks videos for 2013!

You can watch our winning videos below!  Congratulations to our talented and inspiring winners!  Look for an email in the coming days with information on how to claim your prizes.  And Melissa will also be sending out an email in the next few days with info on your Coaching Call!  Thanks to all who participated!
