A comprehensive and practical guide for every dog, every owner, every day. The hundreds of innovative mental and physical activities, games and exercises in this lovingly written reference are created by canine psychology experts to help “real” people overcome challenges bonding with their dogs in today’s hectic world. Don't despair; you can easily shape your dog into the joyous part of life he was meant to be. The Cure details realistic, responsible and fun ideas for every family with dogs, including: Puppies, Toys, Active Dogs, Multi-Dogs and Dogs with Behavioral or Physical Problems; Families with Kids, Senior and Disabled Owners and Indoor Settings. Readers will also learn secrets about how to work with dogs to gently shape behavior, and how to avoid some of the amusing “games” your dog may play on you.

No More Useless Dogs!
Even if: you're not an athlete, you live in a condo, your dog's an 8 wk old puppy or an 8 yr old couch potato, you or your dog have physical challenges, you're a busy parent or your dog's "spoiled' or "neurotic".

Not just another “trick”, training or picture book. Founders of Awesome Dog Professional Training Ray & Emma Lincoln wrote The Cure for Useless Dog Syndrome to give dog lovers exactly what they need:
-Many activities for small dogs and dogs with every body type
-Only gentle, positive training based on canine psychology- no harsh methods!
-Methods without clickers make training simpler (but can easily adapt for clicker use)
-Customer-tested activities
-Easy therapeutic activities to safely bring joy back into the lives of every dog- even “crazy” and “sensitive” dogs
-Activities crafted to promote great housemanners so dogs can truly live as members of their families- without crating.
-Reveals “inside information” to keep your dog and family safe, including the truth about popular “politically correct” activities that harm dogs and create behavior problems.
- Over 200 activities explained in-depth, plus hundreds of variations for all your dog’s life stages. With index, chapter introductions and explanatory headings to make it quick to navigate & easy to select activities one at a time.
