Meet The 10 Winners Of Our “Caught In The Act” Video Contest
Thank you to everyone who entered our “Caught In The Act” video contest earlier this month…
I asked you to send me videos of your dogs “caught” doing something that drives you crazy, whether it’s just an annoying habit or an outright destructive behavior.
And wow, did you all deliver!
I received over 150 video submissions, so it was challenging to pick the “best of the best,” but I finally narrowed it down…
And good news:
Even if you didn’t win 1 of the 10 prizes, this coming Monday, I have another BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, I’ll be releasing 500 copies of my brand-new dog training program…
Cheekily called “Leave It The F@#% Alone”…
… Perfect for anyone who is FRUSTRATED and FED UP with their dog.
Before you throw in the towel, I think you’ll want to check this out…

Thank you again to everyone who entered our “Caught In The Act” Video Contest!
Remember, if you have a dog who is FRUSTRATING you with bad habits, you’ll want to pay close attention to your inbox Monday morning.
I have a solution that I think you’ll be interested to hear about.
UPDATE: 8:05 a.m. Monday, September 23rd
I’ve been getting a lot of comments so I wanted to add a few more thoughts:
The winners of our “Dogs Caught In The Act” video contest were chosen because these folks put themselves out there and were OPEN, HONEST, and RAW about the challenges they’re facing with their dogs.
Every day I get emails from people hiding at home in shame with their dogs, embarrassed to go out, have family over, take walks etc. All because they can’t trust their dogs to behave.
So these winners were chosen because (1) their videos represent common problems I hear about from clients almost daily, and (2) because they’ve been HONEST about challenges I know so many of you are secretly HIDING…
I know from experience, it’s not until we’re willing to be HONEST about our problems do we have any hope of fixing them.
For everyone who is judging … I respectfully encourage you to be gentler with these folks.
You don’t know the history of the dog or the family. A 30-second video clip is not the full picture of their dog or lives together.
And for everyone else struggling with SIMILAR problems…
And consider checking out my BRAND NEW training program:
Cheekily called “Leave It The F@#% Alone”…
… Created for anyone who is FRUSTRATED and FED UP with the dog.
If your dog has an annoying habit that gets on your nerves… like licking, boredom barking, whining, door rushing, attacking the TV, sleeping on your favorite couch…
Or, your dog is outright DESTRUCTIVE or just “TOO MUCH” … chewing, jumping on people, dragging you by the leash, digging holes, aggressive barking, etc…
… And you’ve tried and tried, but you can’t seem to change his behavior, this is FOR YOU!
And I’m so confident that this is the solution to your problems, that I’m prepared to actually BRIBE 500 of you to try it.
Stay tuned, I’ll be releasing it at 9 a.m. PST.
UPDATE: 10:14 a.m. PST … Here’s Where You Can Get The Solution:
And … sigh … the shaming continues. I’m amazed that folks aren’t more understanding. It’s easy to be an arm chair critic of other people’s problems or lives. Alternatively, we can try to constructively help these folks… with a little encouragement and kindness in recognition of the fact that life isn’t always easy, we all face different challenges, and what’s obvious to you might not be obvious to someone else.
What’s that expression… ? People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones? I’m pretty sure we all have aspects of our lives that others would disagree with or criticize if we allowed video cameras to follow us around. 😉 Right??!!!
Look, if you’re facing a frustrating challenge with YOUR DOG… I’m available to help, and I’m making “Leave It The F@#% Alone” available to make it even easier.
Sometimes, yes, the easiest solutions seem OBVIOUS once you’ve learned the tricks. But hey? That’s life and learning. If you love your dog, you’ve problem tried to fix these issues on your own. Hiring a professional dog trainer at $150+ per hour to come to your home may not be practical. And honestly, it probably isn’t necessary. Do you remember learning long division at school? It’s a lot of work, and a lot of steps…
With “Leave It The F@#% Alone” I’m going to give you the easy, short division SHORT CUT. I’ll show you the quick ways to get to the same end result… where your dog becomes enjoyable to live with and stops driving you batty with the same annoying or destructive behaviors.
Again, all the details are here.
