Overview

Since its initial publication, Beyond Basic Dog Training has achieved well deserved recognition as an innovative, unique guide to obedience instruction. Obedience authority Diane Bauman's proven training philosophy asserts that the time has come to go beyond training dogs and start teaching them to please us. This has made a vital difference for those who use her method-and for dogs taught by it to succeed in competitive canine sports.

In this new, updated edition, Bauman presents the most current knowledge on canine learning patterns. Believing that dogs learn by trial and error, Bauman provides a novel approach that encourages dogs to learn by removing corrections for incorrect responses. As a result, dogs do not fear failure and are taught to exercise options in a quest for the desired behavior.

Bauman shows you how to become a "thinking handler" who can train the "thinking dog." Her remarkable ability to view training from the dog's perspective translates into an invaluable tool for building effective communication between you and your dog.

The instruction in this authoritative guide is behind Gaines "Superdogs," numerous obedience trial champions, and a host of other canine successes. If you want your dog to be happy, confident stimulated, and secure in the obedience ring, Beyond Basic Dog Training is the book of choice.

Find out how your dog can achieve the confident, alert, accurate, and enthusiastic style as other top performers who have used these methods.

    A smart way to train your dog.

    This book by far is some of the best imformation that you will find on how to train your dog. A lot of logical thought and common sence has been shared by this author/trainer. If you're a 'love not war' type and have a hard time being physically and verbally harsh in your teaching methods this is the help for you. I'm very impressed with the intellegent way D. Bauman trains for a thinking dog and a owner pleasing dog. I would much prefer having a dog that does for me because he 'wants' to, rather than one that is doing because he wants to avoid negative concequenses. Most of us would do well to read this book before raising our children also. Thank you Diane Bauman for putting this imformative, thoughtful, book out for people who believe more in positive reinforcment and sucesses being the best teacher.
