Training Your Dog Series - All books in this series
It’s well known that each canine breed has its own traits, but when acquiring a new pet dog, many inexperienced owners mistakenly assume that the “one-size-fits-all” approach is adequate for purposes of dog training. This new title in Barron’s Training Your Dog pet care series focuses on the distinctive traits of the Shih Tzu. Dog owners learn humane but effective methods of housebreaking and paper training, obedience training, teaching the dog to respond to verbal commands, walk on a leash, and more. All books in the Training Your Dog series are filled with instructive, step-by-step color photos that demonstrate training methods.
Training Your Shih Tzu
Here’s practical instruction that will give you a well-trained Shih Tzu. You’ll learn how to establish leadership and understand the ideas behind the training methods as you take the first steps in teaching your dog to obey. The Shih Tzu wants to please its master. However, training is easiest when it is begun early in the puppy’s life.
