Spare the punishment and raise a happy, well-behaved dog

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Positive Dog Training, Second Edition, replaces the standard punishment-based training methods that have potential consequences for puppies and limited effectiveness with older dogs. This guide demonstrates positive training methods, based on a system of rewards and encouragement, to teach basic commands and housetraining, and correct a host of problem behaviors. Readers will also learn loose-leash walking games and how to train for the American Kennel Club's increasingly popular Canine Good Citizen test.

Dog owners number more than 40 million in the United States, and more and more of them are giving up on punitive training methods

One of the few dog training books that exclusively adheres to positive training methods

Synopsis:

There are currently more than 43 million dog owners in the U.S., and more and more of them are giving up on punitive methods of training their dogs.
