While average dog owners wouldn't expect their pets to perform routines at the level that Sundance, a celebrity Stunt Dog Show performer, reaches, the fundamentals she puts forth here should be achievable by even the most novice of trainers. The 14 rules are grouped into five major concepts: encourage trust, instill a desire to please, teach behavior, expect respect, and build the canine-human bond. As with any method for training, the specific techniques may work well for some dogs and not others. Sundance assumes that the techniques she presents will work; alternatives are not fully explored. She encourages owners to spend time with their pets beyond formal training and believes that the bond that develops is the key to a lifelong successful dog/owner relationship. Sundance is also the author of 101 Dog Tricks. Both titles are recommended where there is high interest in dog ownership.
