The 30-minute dog training DVD is a perfect complement to this new edition. The DVD is made precisely for owners of medium sized dog breeds; it covers the training approach, practical commands like heeling and staying, correcting inappropriate behaviors like jumping up and chewing, fun tricks like shaking and rolling over, and a bonus chapter. This bonus chapter is unique because it is breed-specific-- a Corgi owner will learn specifically about the personality traits and habits that are characteristic of Corgis. This kind of breed-specific coverage enables owners to cater their training, care, and attention to their Corgi.

This is your typical breed book. The book contains a quality history of the breed and breed standard, and then fills the rest with the standard training, housebreaking, health and food tips that are pretty much the same in all of the breed books. The corgi-specific information is very good. However, I was hoping the DVD would contain corgi-specific training examples. There is one corgi on the DVD, but there are other breeds as well, and the training examples are horrible. Half the time, the dog doesn't even do what the trainer is trying to teach. It looks like it would if you made a recording in your living room, got your dog super tired so he might actually listen to you, and then have a 3rd grader tell him to sit and hope it happens. I assume they just package this DVD with every breed book, so the publisher could have at least spent an extra half day filming the dogs actually doing the trick, instead of just taking the first take on everything. 3 1/2 stars for the book, 0 for the DVD.
