Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Carol Lea Benjamin has done it again. She has written another great book on dog training. This time, she addresses a subject that has never been so thoughtfully and thoroughly examined: canine adolescence. Depending on the breed, a dog's teenage years can start as early as five months of age and last until he's two and a half or three years old. Has the adorable puppy that almost always obeyed you suddenly become a brat with lots of attitude? Does your dog bark back, steal food, destroy your things when left alone? Worse yet, has he become aggressive? Carol Lea Benjamin's Surviving Your Dog's Adolescence presents a positive training program that will teach you everything you need to know in order to have the dog you wish for and deserve. Benjamin explains why puppy training does not work on adolescent dogs, and why training with treats offers only short-term benefits. For the adolescent, for whom choosing to disobey can be an irresistible temptation, Benjamin's answer is training the natural way, the way your dog's mother taught him. With easy-to-follow steps, she will show you how to win your dog's respect, get and hold his attention, teach the basic commands and play games that inspire good habits. Surviving Your Dog's Adolescence presents a humane and effective approach to socializing, exercising, educating and enjoying the zestful adolescent dog.

Synopsis:

Docile, obedient puppies have a way of turning into hooligan "teenagers" between the ages of five months and three years, depending on breed and size. Surviving Your Dog's Adolescence explains why puppy training does not work on the older dog, how to get and keep a dog's attention, which equipment to use and which to avoid, and how to teach basic commands and correct obnoxious behavior.
