    Thinking of teaching your dog some tricks? BUY THIS BOOK !!!

    I admit to buying the book on a whim...
    Got it home. Read the book. Went out and bought a "clicker" and some delicious training "treats".
    My ten year old female Jack Russell knew some basics. I got her to sit and then into the "down" position. And then followed the instructions to teach her to "roll over". She got the hang of it in ten minutes using the clicker and treats.
    You have to get this book. I was amazed at the simplicity. I read and looked at the photos. And then I could do the same with my dog.
    WOW !!!

    Train Your Dog to Behave...and Maybe Some Tricks, Too!

    A book to help you have fun with your dog! This book provides you instructions on how to teach your dog to walk on a leash and do all sorts of tricks.

    The book recommends using a clicker (not included) which may or may not provide your dog with the incentive to do the tasks for which it provides instructions. The author breaks down each trick into smaller tasks to teach your dog that you then bring together in order for the trick to be performed. The author does a great job of providing exact instructions so that you aren't left guessing.
