Know How to Train a Dog
Hello dog lovers! Are looking into getting a dog or puppy, or are currently a first-time dog owner? Nevertheless, we already know you're a dog person, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this in the first place. (Sorry cat folks, but we're not talking to you right now.)
OK, now that we've addressed the obvious...why bother getting a dog?
Well, besides the fact that they're so cute and cuddly and who in their right mind could resist that adorable face when your puppy wants to snuggle in your arms, they're the most loyal companions anybody can ask for, always there by your side no matter what without judging you.
* Need some cheering up when you're feeling down? Your dog can do that. Need to get out of the house more and exercise? Your dog will force you off your couch to stay in shape.
They are indeed man's best friend. Sometimes dogs are just better than people, and that's why we love them so much!
But do you know what would make you love your dog even more? It's having a well-trained obedient dog that will listen to your ever command and even be able to do fancy tricks impressing those around, as a result of you training your dog.
Why should you train your dog YOURSELF, when you can get somebody else to do it? Because it's your dog! If you let somebody else train your dog, it will associate a stronger bond with the other person that you could have built, which far outweighs any new dog tricks. By training your dog personally, you strengthen the dog-and-owner relationship shared between the both of you. So be your dog's own trainer.

I am the proud “parent” of three dogs: a black lab, a beagle-yellow lab mix, and poodle. I really enjoy having their company and want to learn as much as I can about dog care. Like other titles in the series, this book is a broad overview of dog care and training. Information is broken down into easy to digest sections using straightforward language. (I prefer this to other titles that bog you down with too much information or complicated vocabulary. ) The guide starts by discussing how to choose the right breed, some notes about dog care, and then how to train. Training topics include: bathroom training, walking on a leash, and barking. There’s always something new to learn when it comes to dog training. There are things I’m working on with my black lab and I can use some of the techniques in this book. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The title of this book very clearly tells you that this is a quick overview, with a few pointers on some basic dog training techniques. Dog Training Express is best suited to either a first time dog owner or someone who just wants a few easy techniques to teach a dog some manners. The first three chapters deal with things other than actually training one’s dog but could be important information for a first time dog owner. While I see the value in the information, I am not convinced there was sufficient detail included in the first three chapters to make it truly worthwhile to a new dog owner. The next three chapters are the meat of the book and where the bulk of the dog training information is contained. For a new dog owner, the information is simple, helpful and very basic. However, I found the potty training information to be lacking one significant component which makes potty training a new puppy very simple – crate training. Nowhere in this book does the author discuss crate training (or any variation of it) for easy training of a new puppy. The Chapter 7 is where the author lost me. I cannot understand how one goes from learning elementary dog training skills, to suddenly offering one’s basic skills for hire. Seems a giant leap. I likewise do not see a need to coach someone on basic etiquette with regard to showing off one’s dog training skills. The last chapter is spent recapping everything previously discussed in this short book, which I found to be unnecessarily repetitive. The author has made a valiant effort at creating a simple guide for the first time dog owner to teach a dog basic manners, however, it seems to me that since this is a book about dog training, the bulk of it should be about exactly that – with far more detail. Instead, we have only three chapters of the total eight chapters that speak directly to details of dog training. If one is looking for a detailed guide to dog training, this is not it. Dog Training Express is a very simply written and minimally instructional aid intended for a true novice to the world of dog ownership.
This book, is a fun beginner’s guide on training your dog in a way that’s effective. It’s encouraging, helpful, and worded in a way for any reader to understand. The tone presented in this book, is very entertaining and humorous, keeping my interest to the point where I want to read a second-version of the book. I am extremely grateful for the author and his clear interpretation on what each task is supposed to achieve when training a dog. Each goal is broken down into practical sections, making me not feel overwhelmed, rushed, and impatient when training my dog. I am able to enjoy the moment and just having fun during the training process. As owners, we can be impatient and don’t feel that positive reinforcement methods are enough, so we resort to yelling and tugging on their leash. Positive reinforcements, was enough and I was surprised to learn it was working. It’s a lot of work in the beginning, but that is expected because every dog is different when it comes to learning. Plus, it pays off big time! Reading the author’s advice to be patient and to understand that training is a long-term process, while working on the nitty gritty sections, makes a huge difference of helping me stick to the training and bond positively with my dog. I receive so many compliments on why my dog is obedient and people are super shocked when I tell them I have yet to pay for training, but used this book. I was able to get some useful tips and ideas, and would tweak them slightly to fit the environment and nature of my dog. A very positive approach, that works even for the most stubborn. This book is well worth the purchase and I highly recommend it.
