Has anybody seen this DVD set? It's currently on sale and I'm wondering if it's worth buying.

I ended up ordering this - got it today and watched it today. It was excellent, though I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it! But it was definitely worth $40.

It's a video of one of her seminars. It focuses a lot on work from her Feisty Fido book. The information/exercises given weren't earth-shattering, but were simple and made a lot of sense. She worked with some dogs that were reactive so you could actually see the exercises in action. She was an absolute riot to watch and I was laughing out loud throughout several parts of the video.

Near the end she was discussing dog-dog aggression in the home, and she mentioned one of my favorite terms ever - "aggressively obsequious." If you go to her blog she describes it ( http://www.theotherendoftheleash.com/ag ... bsequious/ ) but it essentially describes dogs that come across as "submissive" but in a truly "in your face" kind of way. Describes Inara to a T - if one of her doggy friends snarks at her, she dramatically flips onto her back and then leaps up and immediately licks the other dog's mouth - for minutes on end if permitted. She's quite annoyingly submissive sometimes! But I just always loved the term aggressively obsequious.

Any way, this was a great video and I'm very glad I ordered it. I also now know that I would LOVE to make it to one of her seminars one day.
