Raising Superstar Dogs Seminar video covers Jerry's Superstar Program from birth through 12 weeks old; the earliest age Jerry recommends sending pups to their new homes.Professionally using lecture and video, Jerry weaves a clear and precise picture of how the program works. This is a must see video for all breeders, and, when used as a guide to selecting a caring breeder, will aid the future puppy-family in selecting the best breeder.
This video is an excellent resource to go with Jerry's book, "The Breeder's Guide to Raising Superstar Dogs" was released in late April 2008. The book explains the "Superstar Program" that Jerry created. The program was developed to prepare puppies to be better members of our society. Through early socialization and imprinting techniques, the Superstar program gives puppies a head start on life and drastically decreases the chances of behavioral problems, thereby proportionally decreasing the chances of the puppy needing to be re-homed or even worse, euthanized. The book is intended for breeders of all breeds; anyone thinking of obtaining a new puppy, and trainers that advise clients on puppy selection or that advise breeders on preparing pups for life.
