Despite common misconceptions about small dogs, many are raised as well-trained working dogs and compete in all types of dog sports, while others work as well-trained service dogs and make amazing companions. The versatility of smaller dogs is so vast that to put them all into a category based off anything other than their smaller size is virtually impossible. One thing that CAN be said, however, is that these smaller breed dogs are just as intelligent and bitable as large dogs. This DVD aims to give you the tools, confidence, and help needed to pursue a fuller and deeper existence and relationship with your [small] dogs, as well as dispel any myths or misconceptions regarding the rearing, treatment, training education, and capability of dogs of smaller stature.

When referring to a “small dog,” the thing that is important to keep in mind is that we are referring to the dog's physical size ONLY! We are not referring to the somewhat pervasive tendency to categorize smaller-sized dogs as being less intelligent, less willing to work or learn, or less in general. This "small dog" mentality is something that we want to help change with this DVD, and we will continue to try and change as many minds as possible when it comes to how we interact, live with, and train these little beasts!

Many people, whether they are seasoned dog trainers or pet owners, tend to treat and raise their large dogs differently than their small dogs. While there are obvious size differences that require you to adapt certain training tools and management techniques, the concepts should be very similar. This DVD is going to teach you the subtle differences of how to apply the training techniques you would use with your large breed dog to your dog of small stature.

This DVD takes the same balanced approach to training that we use with all of our dogs, and teaches you how to train obedience behaviors and management techniques with your smaller dogs. Throughout the DVD, you are going to be immersed in the philosophy that our small dogs are still dogs and should be trained and managed in a similar system to our large dogs.
