No one to video you? Afraid to sign up for an online class because you need to submit video and don’t know how to do it? Or need some help with the best way to get your assistant to take your videos? Check out this instructional video by Nancy Gyes.

Using video is one of the best dog training tools available today, and smartphones are making recording your training sessions and competition runs easier than ever before. 

Video can help you be your own coach. It can reveal small, but critical, details about what you and your dog are doing on course that you would not be able to observe in real time. Reviewing video can help you design a training plan and review your progress on a regular basis. It can also be used to increase your confidence because video replay gives you a chance to see what you're doing right as well as what you need to improve.

Video is also a key part of participating in online classes. To actively participate in an online training--and get the personal analysis you have paid for—it’s important to be able to share useful video for the instructor to analyze about what you are doing well or might be struggling to get correct. 

How do you get the best dog training videos for analysis, whether it's for a class or for yourself? Nancy Gyes shares some easy-to-use tools for taking videos with your smartphone or video camera as well as provides tips for positioning your camera to get the view you need to analyze a particular skill. She also gives you some pointers for easy editing on your Apple iPhone.

By making a few simple changes in how you video, you can get better feedback from your instructor and also notice details of your team's performance that you would normally miss. It's a great way to experience noteworthy gains in your and your dog's performance.

Never panic again about needing to submit video for an online class. Nancy simplifies all the steps from purchasing a couple of important and inexpensive devices to showing where to place your camera to get the details you want for skills such as running contacts, handling drills, and even tricks or foundation work in your living room. Whether you're total beginner, a little bit of a technophobe, or have someone to do the actual videorecording for you, you’ll get something out of watching this instructional video.
