The Power of Training Dogs with Food DVD
By Ed Frawley

$65.00

The first DVD we produced in our Michael Ellis series was The Power of Training Dogs with Food. The video footage for that DVD came from a number of Michaelís training seminars that were held here at Leerburg and other locations around the country.

We are pleased to announce the release of a new and updated version of The Power of Training Dogs with Food.

This new video was filmed entirely in HD. We did not use any of the video footage from the first version. In addition, the new DVD was produced from a totally new training outline and layout.

This project has been in the works for more than a year. We flew out to CA and filmed one of Michaelís courses and then Michael flew to Wisconsin to finish the filming for the new outline.
