    Covers basic behavior modification techniques

    We adopted an 8 month old Lab who had been exposed to very little training. My husband, the engineer, had not been schooled in behavior modification so this book was ideal for him to understand the concepts. He (and I) have used those to improve Lucy's behavior both at home and at the Bark Park.
