Overview

Now in paperback, this practical guide helps dog owners use positive rewards and a dog's natural instincts to achieve a stress-free canine-human relationship. With this book, any dog (and human) can be taught the basics of obedience in just three short weeks using easy five-minute exercises three times a day.

With concise text and step-by-step captioned photographs, the 21-day training program -- called the Leadership Program -- demonstrates not just what to do, but explains why it should be done. Each successive week covers Heel, Sit, Stand, Down, Stay, Recall (Come), and Retrieve, with lessons becoming more demanding as weeks progress. Proven techniques for difficult dogs are also provided.

Additional topics include:

  • Differences in canine and human perception
  • Recognizing manipulative behavior
  • Motivating the dog
  • Communicating through voice, attitude, and hand signals
  • Special training equipment
  • Training puppies and mature dogs.

21 Days to Train Your Dog is an easy-to-follow guide that is informative and useful for both new and seasoned dog owners.
