Training Your German Shepherd Dog
Here's practical instruction in humane, reliable, and understandable techniques you can use to teach your German Shepherd how to behave as a well-mannered and well-trained companion.

In this book, author and veterinarian Dan Rice takes you through time-honored training methods that will result in a good relationship between you and your dog.
Training the German Shepherd dog begins with praise and other associative learning methods. The author advises owners on setting realistic goals.
