Question from Leerburg Customers
on Problems with Recalls

We received a lot of questions on problems with the recall. So, rather than ask the same question 3,4, or 5 times Michael and I decided that he would give a little talk on problems with recalls.

Customer Comments
On Leerburg's Advanced Concepts in Motivation DVD

I dream of taking courses with Michael Ellis, even though I’m simply a first time trainer with a pet GSD. Unfortunately, at this time, they are unaffordable for me. Even buying a DVD requires careful consideration. Recently, I bought the Advanced Concepts in Motivation DVD.

Initially, I was disappointed with the presentation, specifically the time spent practicing without the dog, but I’ve been around sports enough to appreciate the significant benefits of drills. Knowing that Michael knows a whole lot more than me, I kept an open mind and embraced the video lessons. I soon realized how remarkable the lessons are.

My dog is one that engages well, but gets bored easily. He is obedient, and learned competition style positions (I like the look) like a champ, thanks to the techniques I learned in the Building Drive and Focus Series.

The continued wealth of information in this DVD amazed me. I felt as if I was attending one of Michael’s courses. I now have the tools to take training to the next level, most importantly, in a way that will be satisfying for both my dog and me.

Thank you Michael, Cindy and Ed for the abundant knowledge you continue to share.

P. S. Thank you Santa Leerburg for the Holiday discounts; they make a difference.

Leerburg Q&A

Featured Question & Answer

Question: Iím getting a new puppy and Iíll have lots of time to spend with him. How much time should I spend on training each day as he grows up?

I got your puppy package of 4 DVDs and enjoying them. High quality production values and great info. I am on marker training one now.... one piece of info I have not yet found.. is how much time to train on a daily basis? I am retiring and getting a 3 1/2 month old standard poodle... I have lots of time to walk, train and be with him AND I do not want to over train. How much time each day should be spent "training" as he grows up?


Cindy's Response:

Training time is dictated by the puppy and his enthusiasm and attention span. It’s always better to keep things short and fun and resist the urge to do “one more” repetition.

A few minutes 2- 3 times daily is much better than 10 minutes once a day. You have to evaluate the puppy once you get him and then you’ll also find there are certain times of the day he’s more dialed in to training (usually before meals is a good time).

There is no timeline for training, it’s as much an art as a science. :)

Here’s a short video clip about timelines in training. I hope this helps.

Congrats on the new pup, enjoy his puppy hood.  They grow up really quick.
