Whether your dog is Snoopy or Air Bud, this is your guide to training him. Have you ever gone to the park and gazed enviously as the nearby yellow lab obediently followed his owner's commands? Have you endured the keen sting of public embarrassment as your Chihuahua deemed it appropriate to mark a stranger's leg? Or perhaps your dog is completely housetrained, but you're hoping to take it to the next level with some competition-worthy talents. If you nodded at any of the above, this book is for you. Written by professional dog-training instructor Tammie Rogers, Dog Training & Tricks is a fully illustrated, easy-to-follow guide for teaching your dog everything he needs to know-from how to sit down to how to turn off the lights. Strengthen your bond with your pup as you train him to follow confident commands drawn from three training methods: the Social Compliance Method, the Incentive Method, and the Comprehensive Method. Rogers' clear, reader-friendly instructions are illustrated with step-by-step, full-color photos so you can easily follow along. Teach your young canine the basics of social manners; prepare your dog for competition through comprehensive obedience-trial exercises; or skip the formalities altogether and get straight to the tricks: jumping through hoops, crawling through tunnels, taking clothes out of the dryer, and more. With Dog Training & Tricks, you and your dog can master some truly amazing feats-and have fun in the process.
