Imagine a dog who listens to you, comes to you, follows you, and looks to you for guidance. This ideal relationship is possible with the techniques of veteran trainer Paul Loeb. His revolutionary philosophy is simple: your dog can learn more — and more quickly — if information is delivered properly. Loeb's groundbreaking theories and humane, holistic teaching style will get visible results in approximately three hours. Not only will you find step-by-step methods to teach housebreaking, paper training, and the basic commands, but you'll also discover:

  • Why one-word commands, including "No," are ineffective
  • Why food rewards and choke chains are not good training tools
  • Why teaching your dog to come to you is essential — and teaching your dog to sit is not
  • How to adapt your dog's behavior to your lifestyle — whether you need your dog to walk without a leash, ride politely in a car, remain on your property...or do just about anything else you can imagine!

Now you can have the well-behaved dog you've always wanted — and your dog will have an owner who understands his or her language.

With Smarter Than You Think, you and your dog can share the special bond of true understanding.
