Recallers 2017 Video Contest Round One

If you have been following my blog for some time, you will know that we love to celebrate our students and their dogs by sharing their video stories. If you are new to our community, a very big welcome!  This year is the 7th Anniversary of our online positive dog training program “Recallers”. Over the past few weeks, our Recallers members have documented the year with their dogs in a video story.

These are real life stories with real people and real dogs, each with their own challenges…. but the common denominator is that everyone wanted the best life possible with the dog they love so much and made a choice to join Recallers.

Stories from Dog Lovers Just Like You

Our members range from teenagers to grandparents, from ‘never owned a dog before’ to people whose professions revolve around dogs. The stories we are sharing over the next few days are representative of the many thousands of people who have embraced the power of choice in dog training and discovered how to turn anything into a game for themselves and their dogs. When you are having fun, challenges do not seem as overwhelming. When you are surrounded by a community who understands you and lifts you up, the impossible becomes possible. When your dog’s choices align with your choices, magic starts to happen.

There is a little bit of magic in each of the videos from our students, and it’s the magic that comes from the confidence that has grown for themselves and their dogs, a large amount of love, and the support of the global community that is ‘Recallers’.

As we will soon be opening registration for the 8th year of Recallers soon, there is no better way to start things off than to share the stories of ordinary dog owners… who are extraordinary! Which brings us to today…

Choose Your Favourite Two and Vote Below

Today we get to enjoy videos from dog lovers just like you. It’s a bit like watching progressions in reality tv programs. We can see and recognize the starting points, and follow the developments. Here is the role we would love for you to play. Over the next few days, we will be posting three semi-final rounds of short video stories for you to vote on. Pick your top two favourites in each round. We will finish the contest with the “Finale” where the top six videos of the week (top two each day) will go head to head to compete to be in the top three of the year. It’s your choice! You can also view and vote on the videos in Round Two and Round Three.

We have very generous sponsors in our community who love dogs, and who have donated FABULOUS prizes! The top 3 stories that you choose, and two additional contestants chosen at random from all the videos submitted, will EACH receive a gift pack including the FIVE amazing prizes listed below.

Thank you to our generous Sponsors!

Cooling Kit from Zentek Clothing
