Episodes of Dr. Ian Dunbar's popular television program that aired in the United Kingdom in the 80s. Some of the fashions may look a bit dated, and the resolution isn't the best but the dog training information is still as useful as it always was.

The only area where Ian's attitudes have evolved substantially is with corrections. When these videos were filmed, it was a very widely accepted practice to yell at dogs or jerk them by the leash to correct certain misbehavior. We have since come to realize that these sorts of physical corrections are largely ineffective and totally unnecessary. Now, we prefer to redirect the dog to the specific desirable behavior.
