Learn to Gain Your Dog’s Obedience and Trust by Understanding How It Thinks and Behaves
Colin Tennant - All books by this author
This expanded and updated edition is filled with many new color photos and brand-new page layouts. It reviews fundamentals of canine psychology—how dogs understand and communicate, and how many of their instincts differ from our own. The author also instructs readers on using vocal and hand signals to teach basic commands, such as “sit” and “stay.” The book’s main focus is on humane methods for breaking bad canine habits through consistent training. Problems and solutions include: dealing with a dominant dog in the home; house-training and paper-training, excessive barking; aggressive or destructive behavior; stealing food, and much more. Also discussed are the best way to introduce a new dog into the family, how to deal with a dog’s phobias, and how to prevent a dog from digging up the yard. The book features instructive sidebar features and color photos on every page.
From the reviews:
