Description

Dog Teaching: Surviving a Puppy Without Losing Your Mind will do just what the title implies and keep you smiling while you're doing it. This easy-to-read guide protects your sanity while you teach your puppy how to live with humans, and it does so with a reassuring sense of humor. Methods are clearly described, based on solid, scientific principles of both dog behavior and learning theory, and the best part, without confusing jargon. You will never be asked to physically hurt or scare your puppy: no prong collars, choke chains, spray bottles or shake cans are involved. Instead, kind and gentle techniques, sometimes including the use of a clicker and dog cookies, fill the pages. This book is a complete "go-to" manual for every puppy owner, written by an author with twenty years of experience in the field. She admits she has made lots of mistakes and isn't hesitant to share them for the benefit of the puppy.show more

About Jane Young

Jane Young has been teaching dogs for competition since 1996 and working with families and their pet dogs since 2004. She is an Associate Certified Dog Behavior Consultant with the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC) and a Canine Good Citizen evaluator for the American Kennel Club. No matter what the breed, the age or the situation, kind and gentle teaching, free of pain and fear, are her exclusive methods. To give back to her community, Jane currently offers dog teaching demonstrations free of charge in her area. These are filmed and shown on Educational Cable Television. Jane lives by this philosophy: Life, especially that of dogs, is too short for harsh training and too long to be without learning.show more
