This dual disc DVD was filmed at TNT’s Annual Summer Camp. My first DVD’s – Puppy & Novice – and Open & Utility are a step by step training guide on how to teach the competition obedience exercises. Proofing & Problem Solving is different in that ALL the camp participants graciously agreed to be filmed with their dogs so that you can see my suggestions on how to work through and solve the training issues they had presented to me. On the Problem Solving disc you will see 2 hours worth of campers working various breeds on a variety of exercises stemming from novice, open and utility.
On the Proofing disc you will see me working with Raisin (Golden Retriever) and Louie (Labrador Retriever). Raisin recently earned her UD title and is accumulating OTCH points. Louie has not yet been in the novice ring and is only 18 months old. In the opening segment, I start off with an extensive puppy training demonstration with my 11 week old Labrador pup, Mighty. You get to see 3 distinct levels of training with my own dogs ranging in age from 11 weeks, 18 months to 3 years old.
The proofing DVD gives you numerous ideas on how to proof your dog and shows games you can play during training. You will learn ways to challenge your dogs and to keep them alert and thinking thru out your training. I show a variety of ideas on how to keep your training fun, creative and spontaneous.

One of the most valuable things that I took away from this video was watching different dogs and their handlers work out the skills that Janice was teaching. It’s one thing to watch dogs that are handled by professionals, but it’s more informative to me to watch regular dog owners. I love that all of the TNT videos are based on positive, fun methods. Janice does an excellent job of explaining the steps though out all of her videos and I always take away benefits for my training.
