Gerianne Darnell and Barbara Cecil had a combined 53 years of experience in the sport of dogs. Between them they earned over 100 High-in-Trial awards and 127 titles on 18 different dogs in obedience, tracking, agility, and conformation. This title is the ideal compliment to our, now discontinued, Small Dog Fun Series of videotapes. These veterans share their techniques for, not only competing, but winning with a small dog. The methods of handling a smaller dog are detailed as well as how to train your dog through all levels of kennel club obedience. An invaluable resource with a completely different outlook on how we work with our dogs.
