Video Testimonials

“The videos are just like having the clinic all over again. Except you can slow them down, rewind and pause. You have too many things to remember at a clinic, this video was so nice because I can go back and review and continue to learn at home.

At my first clinic, it was suggested for us to purchase a Downriver Training video as it would help us to remember what we just learned. My brain was mush by the time I got home. I have watched this video about 10 times. And believe it not, I learn something each time I watch it. The light bulb goes on!”

“I really enjoyed the first video since the video gave a very good basic overview of training which sometimes goes over my head when attending a clinic.”

“I had heard of Lynn’s tapes, but procrastinated getting them for sometime. After talking with other people I ordered them and haven’t regretted it at all. The videos met my expectations completely. I had heard of “square flanks”, but didn’t have any idea what they were. The video showed me and I was able to teach the concept to my dogs. I watched the tapes over and over while I lifted weights and my understanding of herding concepts widened and widened. They have been a tremendous help.

I’ve referred about 15 people to her tapes. I hope they have ordered them because their learning rate could increase greatly too. Please, please, please do the videos necessary to include driving, penning and the other intermediate and advanced things that weren’t on the first two tapes and send the first copy to me.”

“I chose Downriver’s All Breed Herding videos because I like the format of seeing many examples of different exercises run by many different breeds. They are exactly what I want in a herding video; showing problems we all run into and ways to help our dogs. These videos are exactly what I wanted in a herding video; they showcase problems we all run into and ways to help our dogs.

“Lynn’s videos show a clear progression of skills, with a nice variety of drills and exercises to work on at each step along the way. The clarity of progression and breakdown of skills far exceeded what I had come across in previous working videos that I have seen. I highly recommend the Downriver All Breed Herding videos, both to novice handlers and also to more experienced handlers who cannot work with a trainer as regularly as they would like. With the wide variety of drills shown, there are at least a few drills at each skill level that will click with every herding team out there, no matter what level of experience.”

“I chose Downriver’s All Breed Herding videos because I wanted a good set of steps to follow at home. I recommend these videos: it is always good to have as much information as you can!”

“Wow, I just picked up a copy of the new Lynn Leach herding video and have to say, it is fantastic.

Of course I may be a bit biased as my bouv has a few on screen performances. but in all seriousness, there is so much information in this video you will have to go through it a few times to take it all in. It is like having a two month clinic in your own home. There are so many tricks and tips, many examples of drills with so many breeds that you are bound to learn something or find something on it that will help make you a better trainer. There is also a little booklet included that has even more training tips.

 I like the fact that there are examples of dogs/handlers doing it wrong and making mistakes. It's not just about seeing the perfect dog with the perfect sheep. It gives us tools to correct our mistakes and ideas about how to not make them in the first place.

The biggest thing I got from the video is that fundamentals are crucial and how Lynn uses each training step to build on the next. A progressive concept I can understand and appreciate.

I think this video is for everyone. The novice handler will benefit but so will those training for awhile and even training other people. It's great to have a video reference when trying to teach someone something!

I would recommend this video as one of the best!  It's about time someone put out a comprehensive video for herding with all breeds. I'm looking forward to the next one. Congratulations, Lynn!”
