“Leslie Nelson, a well-known trainer and instructor throughout North America, trains Whippets and Afghan Hounds. Her DVD… takes you through the steps of teaching your dog to come to you under any circumstances, using operant conditioning. One of my favorite things about the DVD is that she doesn’t bog you down with scientific jargon. She tells you what the skill is called, why it works, and how to do it… Nelson introduces each step and does a brief demo with a variety of dogs, reminding you of what the step is called and of your goal… Throughout the DVD, Nelson offers sound advice on what to do if training isn’t progressing as planned. She has some sound suggestions about how to fix problems – whether you have a puppy or an older dog.” Marie Sawford
