This is a great book. I believe in positive training methods. This book begins with a chapter or two describing the benefits and basics of positive/clicker training. If you're familiar with the concept it's repetitive - but I believe you can't hear too much of that. However, she then proceeds to give step-by-steps to walk you through how to work with your dog. This is basic - she doesn't go into how certain breeds should gait for example. I think that's your job as handler to know. But she shows you how to "mark" the behavior you want. She also talks about how to address certain issues that arise for show dogs. I own a training center, and will be highly recommending this to our conformation students!
