Overview

51 Puppy Tricks gives puppy owners the tools they need to teach behaviors and tricks to their puppy through step-by-step instructions and photographs. Most other puppy training books focus on curbing bad behavior. Some have training, but only the most basic tricks. Kyra’s curriculum differs from that of 101 Dog Tricks in that the instructions are geared for the less mature dog.

Overview

51 Puppy Tricks gives puppy owners the tools they need to teach behaviors and tricks to their puppy through step-by-step instructions and photographs. Most other puppy training books focus on curbing bad behavior. Some have training, but only the most basic tricks. Kyra’s curriculum differs from that of 101 Dog Tricks in that the instructions are geared for the less mature dog. Young puppies are not yet well-tuned to humans, and respond better to a clicker than to a voice. Also, young puppies have so few skills that everyone benefits from a technique called “shaping” which breaks a behavior into minute steps for easier learning. And, of course, puppies receive extra gentle care when we teach, focused more on instilling a love of learning and a communication pathway rather than accomplishing the goal behavior.

    Very Good book

    This book is very good and has loads of pictures. It completely demystifies the whole process and even gives tips for when your puppy doesn't want to cooperate (i.e. fetching for the dog that isn't a natural retriever).

    My puppy is 16 weeks old and can already do at least half the tricks in the book. Even my older dogs who are well beyond the puppy stage have learned many of the tricks as well.

    My husband who doesn't usually have patience for reading likes the book too because a large portion of the information is provided in step by step pictures. You can pretty much be up and running in very little time.

    I would highly recommend this book.

    Good, easy to use and understand

    Cute book. Purchased for a friend of my daughter's for her birthday... my daughter wanted to keep it for herself. The tricks seemed easy when I looked at it, in fact we were able to quickly teach our two year old dog one of the tricks. Might have to buy it for my daughter for her birthday. Good illustrations and easy step by step instructions.
