By Turid Rugaas
Turid’s dream is to live in a society where dogs are respected and appreciated for what they are. No one who jerks or drags the dog by his neck; on the contrary, he can sniff interesting smells and look at what is going on around him. If you teach him quietly to walk well with a loose leash, remembering that you should respect his natural curiosity about his surroundings, the relationship with your best friend will grow and flourish.
All footage of this DVD has been filmed live during Turid Rugaas’s seminars and camps all over the world. This DVD unites theory and practice in seven different locations to explore what leash work means to Turid and how to learn and practice the techniques and gain an understanding of the philosophy behind them. This menu driven DVD allows you to choose any language with subtitling.
Turid Rugaas has been working with dogs for more than forty years. At the end of the 80’s, along with her colleague, she studied, described and systemised “calming signals” in dogs. Her book and videos on the subject in their numerous translations have been, and are, among the best sellers in the specific field, where they constitute recognised points of reference all over the world. The competence and originality of the operative ideas and proposals complement and teach in such a way that Turid Rugaas is sought after for both her complete courses and campus and also for conferences and symposiums in every corner of the world. The message is loud and clear: instruction and “gentle” training based on positive association and exclude those based on the negative.
