dvd-training-llamas-drive1Interested in training llamas to drive? We made a DVD with llama trainer Bobra Goldsmith that covers step by step what you need to do.

You can benefit from Bobra’s years of llama driving experience. Topics include preparing the llama for driving, fitting the harness, the first driving lesson, the touch of the reins, ground driving, introducing the llama to the llama cart, riding in the llama cart, and safety. This program is rich in details.

We had no idea what the market would be when we made it, but it has sold very well. Bobra’s enthusiasm for llama driving is infectious!  It was originally made as a video but is not available in that format any more.

This DVD retails for $39.95 but if you type in (or cut and paste) 82R2625S in the box for Discount Code, you get our internet price of $29.95.

    Hola Fausto — Lo siento pero el dvd es en ingles. Pero creo que tu puedes entenderlo, como tanto es como los animales y Bobra mueven. (Perdoneme de mis faltas en espanol.) Posiblemente tienes un amigo que entiende ingles y el puedo explicar una vez y despues tu vas a recordarte.

    Pero todo eso depende si tu puedes comprarlo. En la pagina, si haces el , tu vas a ir a otra pagina que es la compania que haces los dvds. Es una parte de Amazon.com que se llama createspace. Yo creo que ellos pueden vender a casi todo el mundo, y creo que tu puedes ver el precio alla.
