Dog Training Handbook
A Ten-week Training CourseUnknown - 2002
So--you tell your puppy to "Stay!" and instead he comes running. Though you firmly say "No barking," the words fall on deaf ears. At the table, doggie's a menace, and your shoes are all chewed up. You need help...and so does your dog. In just 10 weeks, you can have an animal that you know will behave. Based on the authors' time-tested course, these lessons build dog and owner confidence and take you through all aspects of training. Every command and move is simply explained and illustrated with photographs, and useful checklists help you keep track of pup's progress. It doesn't matter what your pet's age, and there's essential information on the differences between large and small breeds. These classes will work, because they're based on kindness and emphasize praise and reward. By the time you're through, your dog won't be pulling on the leash--he'll be heeling nicely!
