your training manual saved my family, thank you! We now have
a perfect little lady-pup, Holly. I'd like to be on your mailing
list, my internet ID is RPWS67A@PRODIGY.COM. Thanks again,
up the good work. I'm not able to even think about opening a
dog training school, but your information has sure helped in
training my own dogs. I bought your video about a year ago and
have lent it to several friends who thought it really helped
them. A Satisfied Customer, Bob Patterson email@example.com
Darr and Jim, I hope you remember me from the last mail
i sent some months ago. Since I suppose you don't have so much
mails from Israel, you should remember. I'm interested
to be included in the pre-release list of the puppies video,
I enjoyed (?) very much the video training series, Thanks for
the information mail and congratulations for the nice training
pages That's all for now. Shalom (which means Peace but also
Bye), Mosh Moshe Guershon e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
the manual is *beautiful* when read with Word for Mac. Michel

Darr, I downloaded your training manual and found it very
informative, as I am in a relationship with a woman who does
pretty much the same thing as you. She trains dogs for film,
protection, and the average dog owner, and your manual made
sense of the things she automatically does that didn't necessarily
make sense to me. (Did I say that right?) I showed the manual
to her and she was quite impressed, and she's been training
dogs (with her ex-husband) for over 12 years. Speaking on what
I know, (the Internet and the WWW homepages) I quite enjoyed
your homepage. In closing, keep up the good work and I hope
you keep the page updated and an interesting place to visit.

very much enjoyed your manual as a pratical guide to "dog
psychology". We look forward to your upcoming puppy manual!!
feel that you did a superb job on the manual !!!!!! My thanks
to you !!!! Russ Prus email@example.com
Finally, I got my tape on 15 June 96. It takes exactly 1 month
to Malaysia. Thank you very much, I like the tape very
very much. As you mentioned on your previous mail regarding
the order for the puppy video and complete training book on
sale. How much in total do I have to pay to deliver to Malaysia
? I would like to place an order. Thanks. Lewis Loo. Lewis_Loo@dell.com
Guys! I just wanted to let you know a couple of things. First,
I love your training video. It has been a great help for me
and even for my dogs. We are all progressing very well. Only
one small problem has arisen, one of my dogs, Jake is blind
....<clip questions on dog training etc> I'll let you
know how training goes. Maybe, when I figure out how, I will
send you a picture. Forgive me if I seem too personal, but after
training with your video,I feel like I know you. Leigh "ecdenton@ECUVM1.CIS.ECU.EDU"
know this following (unedited) letter is a little long but I
enjoyed the time he took to write it. It made me feel like going
to Rio de Janeriro right away if all the people are as friendly.
Jim & Darr,
I got home from the firm this Friday, Bruno and Laura were really
excited: your Video finally arrived! They didnít open
the pack ( highly educated children are really something ! )
so that I could check that everything was OK and that is how
it was: absolutely OK! The dinner ran faster than usual, and
to the VHS to see ( nothing else, but DOGS )! Thank you very
much, everything is OK ! While seeing both of you in the classroom,
we could feel many things: well, Darr ( allow me to call her
this way without any title, precisely as we do in relation to
prominent people: Napoleon, Washington, Tyson, Villeneuve )
is fantastic ! Although we could see that she has absolute control
of both the four and the two-legged students, she is totally
given, not at all cold. Highly complicated matters such as the
dog's body language, in her words and hands becomes something
totally simple ( and yet, simple is very difficult ). She laughs
when talking to the students, she understands the bridges that
are to be crossed inside one's mind, well she is a Great Instructor.
She can train anyone in any art, because she knows how to train.
It becomes evident that she enjoys what she's doing. She is
at the same time: firm, gentle, tender and sweet. She combines
many human qualities in a very humane mix. Please let her know
of our feelings...
As for yourself, it is fantastic to see the depth of your knowledge.
Although we can feel that you really love dog's any dog, you
are really very skilled and sharp during the lessons. ( I'd
say drastic: you do not forgive anything. You do not leave a
single second to chance. The dog learns to know that you are
there right there, at once, immediately ). Your skill ( skill
in the sense of the of the ball control by a professional soccer
player ) is really something for us to pay attention to. And
to watch and to learn. The dog soon learns to know who is in
( the sharp ) command. ìNoî becomes an undoubtful
NO! No is no, period! You ( plural ) are Super!
Our first reaction to the Sessions is that as far as the dog
training is concerned, the issue is not the dog but to get oneself
trained to train a dog. The way you you do it, it does not seem
complicated: the basic commands are very short and intelligible
and the underlying statement is there, crystal clear. Nonetheless,
I am sure that we will have doubts ( for instance: repetitions,
reinforcements, etc. ).
first 2 questions we have are: how to train the puppy to defecate
and to urinate in the only place possible and how to train the
puppy not to bite and not to destroy things. Is there a Video
or a manual on these aspects of the puppy in the houseî?
While we wait for our dog to arrive ( no matter how, no matter
when I'd say. Provided that it is the soonest possible, the
kids would complement ) we will watch to the Video. I do not
intend to translate the comments into Portuguese. I'll try to
limit myself to a hint here and there, but nothing deeper than
that. Bruno and Laura are smart and I am sure they will make
it! Let the extra stimulation brought by the understanding of
what is being said to provide an extra motivation for them to
improve their English. Let's see how it works It's going to
be a double challenge.
Knowing my crew as I do, I believe that Bruno and Laura (my
children) will run the Video so many times, that it will finally
be hopelessly damaged. So, I'll try to make a copy of it for
purposes of backup, put that copy to run and try to keep the
original with the least use possible. Because of that, I am
very much interested in the manuals. As I start sending you
( via Internet, usually at 3 oclock a.m. !!! ), photo by photo,
of the selection Bruno and Laura have so carefully prepared
for you using the Photoshop ( yes, selection, since there are
7 photos, in .jpeg and .zip formats, which is still enormous:
around 800 KB each photo ), and we go through the 5 Sessions,
I'll let you know the material we think would be helpful for
us, since you and I can now rely on both the Canadian and the
Brazilian Mail and that the Credit Card system really works.
This month is a very complicated month for us Brazilians who
work. Tomorrow will be the first of the three-day Carnival holydays
( which in effect will not end up until Monday 27 ) and the
month is over. Because of that I didn't have time to venture
myself into the dark swamps of the Law requirements for importing
puppies from Canada , what I hope to do as soon as possible.
I did not give up of the idea of having a male puppy German
Shepherd Top A Companion Dog chosen by yourself.
Bruno found Canada wonderful and the locations you have chosen
for Darr's outdoors demonstrations in Session 1 are really beautiful.
The whole Video is beautiful in all senses. Please receive my
deepest congratulations. Cordially, Gilberto.
