I know that there has been much discussed in other posts about beginning dove magic, But I was wondering what video courses or videos you would recommend for the beginner in this field. I would like to begin with something like a dove production from a dove bag for my kid shows and then once I've got that down slowly move up to a full blown dove act. I have probably 3 dove bags but none of them are really doing it for me. The real reason is probably because I haven't been taught how to work with them. Any information directing me to the items you suggest and any good instructional materials would be very helpful.
NOTE: My doves are a bit on the bigger side, if that makes a difference.
Thanks in advance.

Ian Adair's Art of Dove Magic is a good quality video, published by L&L. It covers apparatus productions, and moves into a few steals near the end.

I have just purchased Greg Frewin's 3 DVD set, which will tell you everything and anything you need to know about dove work, I am looking forward to there arrival.

Brian, I'm not sure if you mean Dove bags or dove holders since you said you had 3 of them but Greg Frewin's video are tremendous for the beginner and the experienced dove worker however, there is nothing on the dove bag. He deals with care and training, harnesses, clothing and body steals.

They are a little pricing for the beginner since you have to buy all 3 DVD's at one time ($150). Tony Clark's videos, Unmasked and Unmaskded II are also great and he does do a little bag work on them. They are $45 each but you can buy them individually.

A few others are by:
Amos Levkovitch
Victor and Diamond
Andy Amyx

Ed, I'm sure you won't be disappointed with Greg's DVD's. I've been doing dove work for a long time and I learned a few things as well. He shows a method for the loop that a blind man with only one finger couldn't miss.

Amos Levkovith has in his Lecture notes A LOT of great information.

He LOVES his doves, and he knows perfeclty how to take care of them.

Contact Amos, he will help you a lot. He is a great man.

Might want to check out Dave Womach's videos... He breaks it down for you not only with doves but also with parakeets and parrots... I am just entering into dove work and his videos have been helpful.
