The book is organized from A to Z for easy browsing and covers a wide range of care and training tips, from common commands to training equipment, feeding, health, socialization, body language, rewards, house manners, and problem behaviors.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While consistency leads to a well-trained dog, it can be fun and helpful to get other opinions, such as these tips based on the dog-friendly, positive training methods of APDT members. Each topic—from adolescent dogs to the "watch me" command—includes several related tips credited to specific trainers, and there is a directory of trainer contact information and an abbreviations list to explain trainer credentials. Many of the color photos illustrate teaching points. VERDICT This is a great quick reference for basic commands, fun tricks to enliven training, or investigating problem behaviors. The brief, easy-to-follow A-to-Z format makes finding information easy and invites a wide range of readers from novice owners to experienced trainers to apply these helpful ideas for their dog's education and enjoyment.
