    LOTS OF TRICKS!!!

    This is the best dog training book I've used! I've had dogs all my life and have tried multiple methods to train them. Kyra's approach, and the illustrated step-by-step method, really helped me teach my dog new tricks. It was so easy - even a beginner could do it. My dog learned easy tricks usually in 1 session (though it takes a couple practice sessions to ensure good repeat performance). Using positive reinforcement (clicker and treats)training was like a game that we both looked forward to. There are so many tricks to pick from in this book, I was able to find useful and fun tricks for my dog to learn - and we have lots of material for future training/game sessions.

    This book is fun, informative, beautifully illustrated and the techniques really work!

    I think this book is really worth buying because I start training my dog tricks, and then I just kind of drift away from it for awhile, and then I come back to it. You can't really do that with a library book! It's like a reference book! I love the variety of tricks and pictures! It must of took forever to take those snapshots!

    It's perfect for a boarder collie or any other SMART dog that will pick up tricks easily. It is by far the best book with the most tricks I've ever seen. The pictures also help to show the owner what to do - the dogs always get it -ALL of the time

    it's just training the human what to do.
