The Running Contacts That Make You Smile DVD is almost 3 hours long and features 30 different dogs of 16 different breeds on their journey to achieving fast and accurate running contacts. The DVD covers the entire training process, from getting full-out running on the ground and flat plank work to adding challenges, turns, and advanced exits. There is a troubleshooting section within each chapter, and Silvia addresses all of the problems that she has encountered in her running contacts classes. The DVD also discusses the A-frame and running dogwalk in trials.
