Dog Training That Works-as Simple as ABC!

If you're a dog owner, you're already a trainer. From the moment you bring your dog home, you're teaching him how to behave-and, without realizing it, you could be instilling undesirable behaviors that have to be unlearned. Now, there's a simple, no-nonsense way to effectively and humanely train your pet-and get the right results. In ABC Practical Guide to Dog Training, Steven Appelbaum, an expert with over 25 years of professional experience training thousands of dogs and hundreds of professional dog trainers, shares his secrets to help you get your dog to behave-giving you tried, true, and tested techniques that work.

Focused on the strength of rewarding appropriate behavior, Appelbaum passionately relates a sensitive, user-friendly approach that strengthens the canine/human bond. He explains how to quickly establish a training program that prevents problems before they occur-and how, by following a few fundamental principles, you can make your new companion a comfortable member of your family. You'll discover: The basics of how your dog learnsPositive ways to address behavior problems, such as jumping, nipping, chewing, house soiling, digging, and barkingHow to establish obedience off-leash, inside the house and outWhat "pack theory" is-explained in a way that finally makes senseWhere correction can have a place in dog trainingHow to find a professional trainer who is right for you and your dog
