Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Training the Best Dog Ever, originally published in hardcover as The Love That Dog Training Program, is a book based on love and kindness. It features a program of positive reinforcement and no-fail techniques that author Dawn Sylvia-Stasiewicz used to train the White House dog, Bo Obama, and each of Senator Ted Kennedys dogs, among countless others.

Training the Best Dog Ever relies on trust and treats, not choke collars; on bonding, not leash-yanking or reprimanding. The five-week training program takes only 10 to 20 minutes of practice a day and works both for puppies and for adult dogs that need to be trained out of bad habits. Illustrated with step-by-step photographs, the book covers hand-feeding; crate and potty training; and basic cues—sit, stay, come here—as well as more complex goals, such as bite inhibition and water safety. It shows how to avoid or correct typical behavior problems, including jumping, barking, and leash-pulling. Plus: how to make your dog comfortable in the world—a dog that knows how to behave in a vets office, is at ease around strangers, and more. In other words, the best dog ever.

About the Author

Dawn Sylvia-Stasiewicz trained Bo Obama and each of Senator Ted Kennedys Portuguese Water Dogs. She was a professional dog trainer for more than 20 years, ran the popular Merit Puppy dog training classes, and trained and boarded animals for the Washington elite.
