Recallers 2024 Video Contest Round One

Every dog has the potential to show their human just how brilliant they can be, and we’re sharing dog stories over the next few days to show how possible it is for your dog’s brilliance to shine. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I LOVE dog stories, and because you are here, we have a lot in common, because you love dog stories too, and you are in for a treat! (You can also check out the videos in Round Two and Round Three)

Each year, we highlight stories from our Recallers community, and it’s interactive because you can select the stories that touch your heart. Our Recallers are dog lovers just like you, with all different levels of experience, from all different backgrounds, from all around the world. And they decided to believe that their dog could be brilliant, decided to believe in themselves, and decided to take the chance to make what they wanted most of all for their life with their dog a reality.

It can be hard to believe that your dog is brilliant when you are in the midst of a struggle, overwhelmed, frustrated, unsure how to fix the things you want to fix, and constantly receiving unsolicited and conflicting advice. But there is hope, and I know that you and your dog can be brilliant.

Our world-renowned online dog training program, Recallers, will be open to join very soon, and there is no better way to show you how much can be possible when you do dog training differently, with kindness, fun and joy, than by sharing real-world stories.
