This video gives by far the very best puppy raising advises, instructions and tips that I have seen or read. From sound management techniques that leave nothing to chance, to simple and common sense habits, the contents of this video are an essential tool that every responsible dog owner should know.

I was expecting to see the puppy at different stages in growth and development from 8 weeks to 8 months. This is a very basic video, nothing you cannot learn from the free videos on demand or youtube. I was highly disappointed with this video due to several reasons. 1) More references to other videos, or articles, 2) No leash or house breaking techniques, 3) no mic on Cindy while she's demonstrating so you can hear what she is say/doing for that demonstration, 4) I was looking for some generalized information for the puppy during their growth and development stages. Some areas went into detail with many other subjects being left out or briefly mentioned then referred to another video. This was my first video I had purchased on Leerburg and had high hopes for this video.

We listened to inexperienced well meaning 'Modern Positive Dog trainers' when rearing our first border terrier. We went too fast with the obedience work, walking training, off leash play and doggy day care. We are now repairing the damage we created and have a couple of years of patient work ahead.

We got our new puppy and are not going to make the same mistakes.
Thank you Ed for clarifying, that engagement before obedience is the key. That meeting strangers and other dogs and puppies is unnecessary, and to beware not to allow puppy to bond to the adult dog more than us. I also found the section on Ex Pens really sensible, so we got one today. I also like that you have bypassed 'purist' views and utilise things like harnesses and food for marking.
It was great to hear that Cindy does say No, and aaa aaa as well as yes.

Thank you

This is a very very basic video. There's nothing on here about house training or leash training which are the two main things to teach a puppy. There's just references to other articles and videos. This video is good for what it is, but it doesn't really get into any training techniques at all, which is what I thought I was paying for. Overall, disappointed.

Quote from webiste: "If you are at the housebreaking stage with a puppy, you need my video titled "Your Puppy 8 Weeks to 8 Months." I give this tape to every person that buys a puppy from my kennel. I NEVER get questions on raising a puppy after sending my people this tape. It's much better than any book published on the subject."

But there is no discussion of house training in this video at all. Very disappointed. So bought the "Housebreaking 101" video, too. Disappointed in that as well.

I think the video reinforces a lot of the things, you need to do with a puppy. It's more moulding the pup for when it gets older. Over all I was a bit disappointed with the movie.

I was disappointed that there was nothing about potty training which I thought would be a number one teaching need for an 8 week to 8 month old puppy.

Informative, but just when he would start talking about a topic I was interested in, he would reference another DVD that I would have to buy. This video just touches on very basic things that you can read about in his free videos or articles.

Very informative on a broad range of puppy topics. Even despite the less-than-ideal (standard defenition) video quality and a few typos, it is still a great resource to have. I'm very much looking forward to watching other videos by Leerburg soon.

This is my second review of the video. My first one was done when I had viewed about half of the program. Now, having completed the entire video, I must say that it is quite complete and provides valuable information for the novice and experienced puppy owner alike.

My suggestions to shorten the intro and use plain titles for each segment instead of video effects still apply. However, the one improvement that could easily be made would be to break it up into main title parts so that the viewer could go directly to a section. This would make it easy to return to any section for a review after going through all sections sequentially. Trying to find a part in a two hour streaming video with a slower internet connection is virtually impossible.

Great web site and thanks for your hard work in creating it.

The material is informative. However, the intro is way too long and does not need the cheesy visual effects. The streaming is problematic. Since the video is long and will probably be watched in segments, the algorithm should provide for a return to the previous viewing point. Technology has evolved to make the streaming portion of the site a more pleasant experience. Please update.

I am a Certified master Canine Trainer of 15 years. I recommend my clients to watch this video if they have a pup or young adult dog.

Even if you think you are beyond basic Training I would still highly suggest watching this video it is worth the Money. As a trainer it is important that you take what you need and leave what you don't, keep an open mind and see what some of the top experts in the field have to say. I loved the video and can tell you that there are small segments of training Gold in this video. Watch it!

Many thanks for this great video. I picked up several crucial tips in raising my 4 month old B. malinois. I highly recommend this DVD for anyone wanting or raising a puppy.

Overall, I enjoyed the video but could use improvement.

Being hard of hearing, it was difficult to watch without the option to use captions, and when words appeared for titles there were errors such as "Grooming You Puppy" instead of "Your" which I noticed at least two times throughout. I was hoping for milestones and markers on development for a well socialized puppy. More information on caring for and teaching a puppy in the city would also be nice for those of us who do not have access to pools, lakes, or have the reasonable option of using a flexi lead to walk our puppies. I would have liked to see more information on handling a puppy in public such as busy areas outside or pet-friendly stores beyond not letting strangers or (strange) dogs interact with the puppy (which I agree with).

Great video and very informative. I have had my pup for about a month and am glad to see that I had already been doing most of the training methods correctly for my malinois... I also learned some things that I didn't know or need to work on a little bit. Thanks a lot Leerburg! :)

It was a very informative and excellent video for the beginner or experienced pet owner. Thank you Ed and Cindy!

Not a bad video. Lots of information was covered in a variety of topics. It was unclear what the author thought was the best way to correct a really bad behavior or issue. Instead it almost seemed if you have an issue you failed somewhere earlier and it will be hard to correct. Not a lot covered on how to correct issues that arise, most things were all the 'good' stuff.

It was a good video but I was expecting to see the puppy at different stages in growth and development from 8 weeks to 8 months. I think that some topics were emphasized a bit too much where it may have left some room for other information. Also, I was hoping for some generalized milestone information for the puppy during their growth and development such as by X months your puppy should be able to Y.

I was expecting a little more do's and don'ts on common mistakes people make. Should a puppy sleep with a harness in their crate? Should an emergency kit be put together? Overall the video has a lot of good information and education, just wanted few more things actually covered rather than having to go to other areas on the site.
