What reviewers are saying...

APDT CHRONICLE OF THE DOG
“This is a DVD featuring a portion of a live seminar by Ted Turner. It is divided into two sections; the total time for the DVD is five hours, with each section being approximately 2.5 hours. The first part of the seminar, The ABC’s of Behavior Shaping and the Fundamentals of Training, discusses the basic concepts one should understand and consider before attempting to modify behavior. The second section, Proactive Behavior Management and Extinguishing Aggression & Other Problem Behavior, goes into more detail about how to actually work with problem behaviors. The first part covers basic learning theory. Although there are several important points made in this section, it will primarily be a review for experienced trainers. Turner gives several nice, step-by-step hierarchies for different aspects of the training process. These hierarchies will be helpful to all trainers, and particularly newer trainers. He also gives a lot of very good information on learning principles and how to avoid common pitfalls of training. In the later part of the second session, Turner also discusses behavior modification techniques for dealing with aggression. I always enjoy Turner’s views on aggression, because he does work with wild animals and the lessons learned from them transfer well to working with domestic animals. Turner is obviously an experienced and educated trainer, and brings up many points that are often overlooked in books and seminars. Because this is a live seminar, there are some mis-statements and inconsistencies, but my impression is that this is not a lack of knowledge on Turner’s part, but a natural consequence of speaking in front of a live audience, and they aren’t serious enough to take away from the overall quality of the content. My biggest complaint is about the technology and editing. The presentation materials were spotty —most were typewritten notes and very difficult to see, while a couple were snazzy graphics—presented with an overhead projector! Nice graphics could easily have been inserted into the final presentation and even provided as a separate document to be printed and used. Occasionally, the camera focuses on the audience. All of this should have been cut! Because it was a serious lecture, there was little animation or smiling from the audience, and there was a lot of “shifty” eye movement. In my opinion, most of the audience shots actively detracted from the presentation. There were also some minor audio glitches. And, most annoyingly, the DVD itself was difficult to work with. Because I was reviewing the presentation, I often wanted to “rewind” and re-listen to something —I did not have that option. Each section is a very long, continuous segment, which meant that I had to go back to the beginning of the lecture if I wanted to hear something again. I fear that this will result in the DVD not being as useful as it could be—I wonder if I’m willing to sit through a 90 minute to two hours of lecture to hear an important point that I missed the first time around. The information presented is of good quality, regardless of technology, but it is not nearly as slick as it could have been. The producers should have taken the time to turn this into a more professional looking production.” Susan Smith

If your serious about training, this is for you, July 7, 2009
Reviewer: Crystal Saling
I really enjoyed a 'personal audience' with Ted Turner in my living room. Dog trainers don't get a lot of direct influence from zoos and aquariums- this bridged that gap excellently. Make sure you block out a whole day to watch this and take notes as you go, because you will need them. One of my aha moments was scalloping- this has changed the way I train some behaviors to my clients.

One of those dvds you can watch time and time again and you agree with it all. Brilliant and well worth watching - so many light blub moments.
 
Lots of Science behind Behavior, March 28, 2007
Reviewer: Tami Hawes
You are getting a lot of information for your 5 hours of viewing. What this doesn't give you and what is really needed is a web link to where you can get a copy of the notes from this seminar. This was originally taped in 1996 and was a weekend seminar with Patty Ruzzo and Leslie Nelson also presenting.

If you're really into the science of behavior then Ted will clearly outline all the reasons why things work and don't work. He backs up examples with real life experiences from working with a variety of animals and the mistakes that he has made in the past.

A lot of what Ted was talking about in 1996 has since been used very effectively by a lot of dog trainers in developing a variety of programs. If you've ever wondered where some of the information came from, here's a good starting point for finding it.

One thing that hasn't continued since this seminar was the thought of starting your dog out as a puppy on a variable rate of reinforcement and rewards while teaching behaviors. Why did this get lost? I could imagine that a lot of owners would have less ring issues if they had followed Ted's suggestion in this. This whole section really needs more than I can give you here.

I also like how Ted suggested that you should be training your dog a variety of behaviors. Not just teaching for the obedience ring, but including tracking and agility and play in their repetoire of trained behaviors.

Worth the time and money. Yes, there are some video/audio issues from the original recording but not bad for the technology ten years ago.
