Dogs need to have fun. Take the stress out of training and keep the fun in with short, to-the-point sessions that both human and dog will enjoy. Imagine ten-second exercises and five-minute training sessions that teach dogs how to sit, lie down, and walk without pulling on the leash-and solve behavioral problems, even in older dogs. Quick, easy, step-by-step exercises are part of a simple, playful training method that shows readers how to take the frustration out of dog training by stimulating a dog's thinking ability. For dogs of any age, breed, temperament, or social skills, this newly revised edition of CATCH YOUR DOG DOING SOMETHING RIGHT helps dog owners discover how to motivate their dog and to understand the four factors that govern a dog's behavior, the seven qualities of successful dog handlers, and the importance of praise, rewards, and play.
