Sometimes things just don't add up.

Using positive reinforcement to train a dog can be a fun, rewarding, and successful endeavor.... until a cat saunters into the room. Using food to redirect Buster's attention away from Miss Kitty is often recommended, and as often it fails to diminish Buster's fascination with felines.

When Cat = 100 and Hotdog = 4, there's little chance that the dog will simply take his focus off kitty, especially if he's not hungry.

In DOG ALGEBRA, Tammie Rogers solves the equation by offering a simple, straightforward, natural, and effective way to overcome training situations that positive reinforcement fails to resolve.

The common sense principles described in this book will help every dog owner develop a more trusting, confident, respectful, and enjoyable relationship with their canine companion.

DOG ALGEBRA is amazing, uncomplicated, winning advice all served up in a concise, easy to read book authored by a highly experienced educator of dogs and their people.

Solve for G where G = Good Dog!

Author of 4-H Guide: Dog Training & Dog Tricks (Voyageur Press, 2009) and T.E.A.C.H. Your Own Service Dog (www.Lulu.com, 2011), Rogers uses her 25 years of working with dogs and their people to continue her discussion on how to forge a happy, respectful and loyal partnership.
