Dog Training DVD Reviews – My Top 5

Of course, we all love our pets. However, there ARE few times when they manage to get on our nerves… a bit. Remember that time when Fido (accidentally) left a brownish surprise right beside the bed? How about when he “marked” the carpet as his territory? For all we know, these are just little doggy habits for them – how are they to know that doing “number two” on your upholstery is prohibited? These for them are just like any routine acts – purposeful, but without malice. And since you can’t exactly home-proof your dog, why not try doing it the other way around?

Thank goodness, technology comes to the rescue again. Nowadays there are a lot of dog training paraphernalia available (books, net, and for those who want it more comprehensive, instructional videos). Indeed, dog training DVDS are very helpful in helping Spot understand that the dos and don’ts. After all, we cannot all be dog-whisperers.

Compiled below are some dog training DVD reviews. Be conscious of what behavioral aspect need to be addressed, then take your pick among these informative instructional materials.
