Content descriptions

General Note: Electronic book.
Originally published as The love that dog training program, now revised and updated.
Summary, etc.: Training the Best Dog Ever relies on trust and treats, not choke collars; on bonding, not leash-yanking or reprimanding. The five-week training program takes only 10 to 20 minutes of practice a day and works both for puppies and for adult dogs that need to be trained out of bad habits. Illustrated with step-by-step photographs, the book covers hand-feeding; crate and potty training; and basic cues�sit, stay, come here�as well as more complex goals, such as bite inhibition and water safety. It shows how to avoid or correct typical behavior problems, including jumping, barking, and leash-pulling. Plus: how to make your dog comfortable in the world�a dog that knows how to behave in a vet's office, is at ease around strangers, and more. In other words, the best dog ever.
