New Successful Techniques for Dog Training!

Take eight private lessons from two of America's foremost obedience instructors and enjoy the same success achieved by the thousands of students who have attended the authors' classes and clinics. These training techniques incorporate the latest findings on canine behavior, and their instructions are based on scientific research on how people learn a new skill. Both are models of simplicity and clarity. The approach to dog training in this book differs radically from other training methods. It was developed for people who are starting out with their first dog, and for those who do not have the aptitudes of an expert trainer. It is designed to work successfully with small dogs, larger dogs, mixed breeds, purebreads, young dogs and old dogs.

The book is enhanced by 132 illustrations and detailed explanations of how dogs learn, what dogs can learn, and the best time to start training. Common sense tips on dog ownership such as housetraining, feeding, exercise and traveling with your dog are included as well as explicit and effective instructions on dealing with such annoying habits as barking, chewing, digging and jumping. It's all here?the hows and whys. Named Best Care and Training Book for 1983 by the Dog Writers' Association of America!
