Training Your Dog Series - All books in this series
This newly revised title opens with a short history of the Beagle and a general description of this popular animal's personality and traits. These cheerful canines have been trained as hunters since the dawn of history, but they also make affectionate house pets. Subsequent chapters discuss acquiring a Beagle, bonding with a newly acquired dog as well as purchasing collars and leashes. Here's everything the neophyte owner needs to know about the Beagle and its traits. Training Your Dog books teach ordinary non-expert dog owners how to train their own pets. Virtually every aspect of training is covered, with special focus on the distinctive traits of individual breeds. Dog owners are instructed on humane but effective methods of housebreaking and paper training, obedience training, teaching the dog to respond to verbal commands and hand signals, walking on a leash, and more. Also covered are methods of correcting bad habits such as begging, unwanted barking, and showing hostile behavior. Appealing color photos and illustrations on most pages include many that demonstrate training methods.
