Publisher Comments:

No one is more qualified to teach you how to train your dog than Dick Maller, president of the U.S. Professional Dog Trainers' Association and operator of the famous Maller School for Dogs, whose dogs have won over 100 awards and have appeared in movies and on television. Here is his easy-to-follow, effective, and above all, humane approach to training your puppy or full-grown dog in only 21 days. Using "operant conditioning" and "positive reinforcement" as the two basic training techniques, the author shows you:

* how to housebreak your puppy quickly and painlessly

* how to break your dog's bad habits (barking, chewing, chasing cars and bicycles, jumping up on visitors, howling when left alone)

* how to train your dog to follow simple commands (sit, heel, turn, stay, lie down and come)

* how to teach your dog to fetch, jump, catch, carry or retrieve an object.

The simple Maller method is your guide to raising a happy, obedient dog — one who follows your orders not out of fear (as in traditional training methods), but out of delight in pleasing you — every time.
