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!

This book is great for newbies to dog training. Very Helpful! Has lots of pictures! With troubleshooting! Has a section on how to teach you dog to play hide and seek! And teaches your dog to help you with modern day conviences, like shut the door. Also will help you teach your dog hiusekeeping, like tidy up your toys, go get you leash, etc. Overall very great book. You get successful results. No false advertising here!!!!! That's for sure! Like I said, I taught my 4 month old Mini Australian Shepard (sorry if I spelled shepard wrong, which I probably did) to sit in one day/training session. He is 7 months going on 8 months old now, and sits like a pro!! I very highly reccomend this book!!! No doubts!!!
