In Take 2: Training Solutions for Rescued Dogs, veteran dog and animal-actor trainer Joel Silverman discusses some of the unique situations from which adopted dogs come and how "baggage" from their prior homes can affect their behavior.

Help your dog adjust to his new home and family

House-train your dog in his new environment

Troubleshoot problem behaviors

Teach basic cues, such as sit, stay, and come

Advice and training techniques are detailed in easy-to-follow steps accompanied by color illustrations. Using Silverman's methods, owners can ensure that their home is their newly adopted dog's forever home.
