Overview

This user-friendly and engaging book describes a six-week program to get people and dogs off on the right paw. Inside the covers are clear descriptions of humane and scientifically-based methods to teach basic exercises including sit, down, come, heel, stay and no jumping up. As importantly, the book emphasizes how to make training fun for those at both ends of the leash, and how to ensure reliable responses while still being your dog's best friend. Also included are trouble-shooting tips for what to do when your dog hasn't read the training books and doesn't respond as expected. Equally useful as an adjunct to training classes, or for people who are "home schooling," Family Friendly Dog Training will help you connect with your best friend in a way that will enrich your relationship for years to come.
