I can’t stress enough what a huge revolution in dog training this Louisiana trainer made on the world. Watch this movie, you’ll never approach training and working with your dog the same. The following is from the movie’s web site (click the title above).
‘Dog Man’ tells the story of world renowned dog trainer Dick Russell who trained an estimated 30,000 dogs through his "basic obedience class" in South Louisiana and introduced the pivotal training concept of “large field socialization” to North America, before ultimately succumbing to cancer.
The movie explores how Russell first got into dog training 50 years ago, and the enormous 'paw print' he left in Baton Rouge, and the national dog training community, communicated through several 'HALL OF FAME' dog trainers around the country—from Chicago, to New York, to Orlando, to Atlanta, and the list goes on—all who were highly influenced by the late Dick Russell.
