Overview

Filled with practical information and advice, this large, photo-filled volume instructs dog owners on the easiest and most efficient ways to achieve a happy and harmonious partnership with their dog. Starting with instruction in basic commands, such as sit, down, and heel, and then moving on to more challenging commands for "advanced" dogs, an experienced trainer explains everything dog owners need to know about canine training. The book's opening section discusses such issues as the importance of training, bonding between owner and dog, recommended breeds to fit different lifestyles, establishing hierarchy between master and dog, having the correct training equipment, and more. Chapters that follow cover virtually all pertinent subjects, including—

  • Ways in which dogs and humans communicate
  • Socializing a puppy as a first step toward basic obedience training
  • Teaching all of the basic commands
  • Advanced training, including heeling across obstacles, and competitive team exercises
  • The dog in public, including rules of etiquette for dog owners
  • Humane solutions to behavior problems, such as excessive barking, car chasing, straying, and destroying furniture and clothing

• The book's closing section, titled Quickfinder, consists of succinct answers to the most-often-asked questions about dog training. Hundreds of color photos, handy checklists, and instructive sidebars.
