Summary
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 will discover the basics of how your dog learns; positive ways to address behavior problems, such as jumping, nipping, chewing, house soiling, digging, and barking; how to establish obedience off-leash, inside the house and out; what "pack theory" is (explained in a way that finally makes sense); where correction can have a place in dog training; and how to find a professional trainer who is right for you and your dog. Complete with an Internet guide to sites on everything from pet supplies and dog parks to boarding kennels and veterinarians. The ABC Practical Guide to Dog Training truly makes training your four-legged friend as simple as ABC!
