Training methods for the top competitor. Advanced Schutzhund takes a problem-solving approach to Level III work that will help competitors bring their dogs to the highest level. Tracking, obedience and protection are dealt with individually, analyzing specific problems that crop up in each skill and offering step-by-step solutions. The approach uses operant conditioning techniques that steer clear of compulsion methods and build a dog's confidence, courage and problem-solving ability. You'll also find tips on how to compete at the National and World levels, including traveling with your dog.

    Not Entirely Positive, But Overall Worthwhile

    I'm not quite sure what a couple of these methods are doing in a book of positive training and operant conditioning -- the passage urging a fist thump under the dog's chin, for example, is hardly operant conditioning , and I wouldn't call 'two or three quick jerks' on a choke or pinch collar positive training. Still, this methodology is vastly better than much of the Schutzhund material out there, and it's obvious that the authors know their material. The 'extra' information on international travel, etc., was interesting and useful. Good photo illustrations, too.
