Outstanding, May 11, 2012
Reviewer: springermom
Pattern Games is excellent on a number of levels. First, because the concepts of the games are simple. McDevitt takes you from the easiest game--- getting your clicking skills up to par to the more difficult task of catching your dog 'inhaling.' Second, the video repeats examples of the correct method for teaching the games enough times to clearly demonstrate the principle. She also grasps where the challenges are especially with reactive or unfocused dogs. She knows that you need to be able to get your dog to work in a class room setting. She realizes how difficult it can be form many dogs in performance events. I think this video inspires handlers to continue efforts with challenging pets. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I would have liked to see these games applied in more real life situations or with dogs not so well trained. However, this DVD is worth the money. And it is good to have in your handling tool box.
