The video series teaches you games to play with your dog that promote

connection to you and disengagement from that ever so

interesting environment. So when that pesky squirrel or bird or neighbor

dog appears, it will be YOU that your dog pays attention to. In addition to

the videos, we will meet up online to discuss the games, provide

real-time demos and answer your questions.

Join the challenge! It will be fun for the whole family especially your pup!
