BARRON'S Training Your Dog Series

Books in this series speak exclusively to the task of dog training and tell you what you need to know about the distinctive traits of individual breeds. You'll find information on virtually every aspect of training, starting with housetraining, then progressing to basic obedience, walking your dog on a leash, teaching obedience using verbal commands and hand signals, and much more. Special behavior problems are also covered. You'll learn humane methods of eliminating canine bad habits such as begging, jumping on visitors, nipping, and unnecessary barking.

Filled with instructive illustrations and full-color photos

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. The typical German Shepherd has an even temperament, is quite intelligent, and highly trainable. He will learn to follow basic commands as well as more complex disciplines, such as herding, agility, search-and-rescue, and more. 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.

Synopsis:

Training the German Shepherd dog begins with praise and other associative learning methods. The author advises owners on setting realistic goals. Also covered are humane methods of breaking a dog's bad habits, such as begging, jumping on people, unnecessary barking, and biting. Each book is filled with instructive full-color photos.

Synopsis:

Barron's Training Your Dog titles offer breed-specific advice on virtually every aspect of canine training, including housebreaking, obedience to basic verbal commands and hand signals, retrieving, and walking the dog on a leash. These books also discuss humane methods for breaking a dog's bad habits. The German Shepherd is intelligent and a quick learner, which makes him highly trainable.
