What will you learn?
In this DVD, Dr. Yin tells the story of her father's Cattle Dog puppy, Lucy.
You'll see how she secretly trained and socialized Lucy for a week before she gave Lucy to her father, so that he would start off with a puppy who was perfectly behaved. Then find out how after only two weeks with her parents, Lucy quickly became a puppy that was unfocused, uncontrollable, and starting fights with other dogs. Watch the plan that got Lucy back on track, so that, by 16 weeks, she was a dream puppy again, even for her parents.
