Everyone can benefit from these games. We have presented them in a way that someone with no experience training dogs can understand the "what" and the "why" of the game. We have incorporated a plethora of information into each game, so an experienced dog trainer can learn new tricks to incorporate into their groundwork.
Each of these games will also help establish the ground work for many of your more advanced obedience behaviors. Each game also has many real-world applications. For example, the "food on the floor" game will help your dog learn impulse control, and at the same time your dog will learn not to eat food that you drop or leave out. We turn the restrained recall, which is the foundation to a formal recall, into a fun game for the entire family. These games are meant to be fun for you and your dog, while at the same time offering huge training benefits.
The DVD is laid out in 9 chapters. The first chapter will be a basic overview on how to use markers in your training. After that each chapter will explain the practical application for the game, a detailed explanation of how to play the game, and an overview of the training steps involved in that game.
