The Dog Tricks and Training Workbook is a follow-up guide to 101 Dog Tricks. This new book invites the reader to focus on 30 foundational tricks and to track and gauge his or her progress in teaching them. The workbook explores integral behavior and training concepts, which enhance not only the dog's performance but the overall relationship between dog and owner. The accompanying deck of 30 trick cards illustrate the step-by-steps of the tricks themselves, and the associated online video tutorials are excellent teaching tools for the working, training, and bonding sessions outlined in the workbook.
