    A classic common-sense training guide

    I've had this book since it was first published, bought many to give as gifts, and recommend it to adopters of our dogs. It just has so much info packed into this book, all good old fashioned common sense training methods, and not fad new methods of training. It may be an oldie (17 years now!) but it's a GOLDEN Oldie! My own copy is well worn, since I refer back to it so much!
