The Puppy Diary DVD explains how Silvia chooses her puppies and provides insights into the games and exercises that Silvia finds most important for growing puppies. Silvia chronicles her puppy To's first five months, explaining over 30 different tricks she taught to the pup in her first three months with Silvia.
Silvia comments, "Basically, this DVD shows everything I did with little To, to answer a question on what is my secret in producing champion after a champion. And no, there is no secret master plan—it's just a lot of listening to the dog I have, adjusting, and problem solving. That's why the DVD is not called "Creating a Super Puppy," but simply "Puppy Diary," documentation of my first steps with one little puppy, learning everything she needs to know to be well prepared for life of an agility dog."
