This set includes four Teamwork Service Dog Training products:
Teamwork Manual Book
Teamwork II Manual Book
Teamwork II DVD
These materials give you a very detailed explanation of service assistance dog training. Some of the training covered in these books and DVD's are: Teaching your dog to put his front feet up on a surface, to back up, go under a table, come into position beside you, carry objects, open & close doors, pull a wheelchair, stay in position, hold objects, and many other skills.
The DVD's provide step by step demonstrations of the exercises taught in the books. Interviews with people who have taught the skills help the viewer understand and visualize the training techniques. There is valuable information on understanding your dog and his behavior, excellent training tips for each exercise, and advice to prepare you for changes in your life and your dog's life.
These training products help people with disabilities realize that they can share the companionship and joy of owning a dog. With a little work and dedication, they can learn how to make their dog a well behaved friend and companion. They don't have to rely on someone else to do it for them, and they don't have to forgo the pleasure of canine companionship. The end result of these Teamwork Training products is TEAM-a person and dog who understand one another and bond strongly together.
We highly recommend these products. By purchasing these books/DVD's as a set, you save FIVE dollars off the retail price.

Teamwork Service Dog Training Books & DVD I used these great books and the 1st DVD about 3 years ago. The books are well written. I have a 36 # whippet as my service dog. He is so fun to train. I have trained Louie to do many skills in the books and some take longer than others to learn. The examples and suggestions really help teach your dog the skill to assist. I highly recommend these teaching aids. They are the best I have found. I live in an area where I have not found anyone who does training so I am very thankful for the books that teach me to be a teacher/trainer for my dog.
