Hands-off Dog Training Revisited

Back in February we posted about a couple of ‘hands-off’ dog training methods largely to poke fun at a new training system that is supposed to let your dog train himself by watching educational videos.

Today a friend forwarded this link to a video of a truly remarkable woman who really has developed a hands-off training system.  In the video Donna Rock is shown training utility and freestyle exercises to a border collie and a doberman.  Folks, I’m pretty hard to impress but I am absolutely in awe of this woman.

Here’s a link to a short video biography of Ms. Rock:

    I’m complaining because my dog get 10/40 for heeling but does all the other exercises in Novice.

    I hang my head in shame, I need to do some serious training not complain.

    Wow, Very impressive
