Although designed to complement our Good Dog Training online course, our "textbook" may also be used independently. In it, you will find a path towards a new way of thinking about behavior, helpful tips on welcoming a dog into your home, answers to common questions, and the basic building blocks you will use to ultimately be able to train your dog to do...pretty much anything!
By focusing on concepts rather than behaviors, this text will provide any dog owner with knowledge and a new skill set that will last a lifetime.
This 80-plus page fully illustrated downloadable book will teach you how to:
- Spot "Good Dog Training"
- Use the "Dog Training Triad" to position you and your dog for success
- Understand the two different kinds of conditioning
- Use a clicker
- Welcome a new dog into your home
- House-train a dog
- Teach a hand-to-nose touch
