    Easy Positive Training

    This is also an owner-friendly training book. Even a beginning trainer/owner will pick up the new positive training techniques. Absent is the guilt trip for those who occasionally yank on that leash or growl at naughty dogs. The cartoons are so true-to-life. A great family dog training book.
