Training Your Dog with Love and Kindness BookKeith
Training the Best Dog Ever, originally published in hardback as The Love That Dog Training Program, is a book based on love and kindness. It features a program of positive reinforcement and no-fail techniques that author Dawn Sylvia-Stasiewicz used to train Bo Obama the White House dog and each of Senator Edward Kennedy’s dogs, amongst many others.This book, Training the Best Dog Ever relies on trust and treats, not those choke collars; on bonding, not lead-yanking or scolding your pet. This five-week training program takes only up to 20 minutes of practice a day and works for both puppies and for adult dogs that need to be trained out of bad habits. Illustrated with step-by-step photos, the book covers hand-feeding; crate and potty training; and basic cues, stay, sit, come as well as more complex objectives, such as bite inhibition and water safety. It shows how to avoid or correct behavioral problems, including jumping, barking, and lead pulling. Also: how to make your dog comfortable in society-a dog that knows how to behave in a vet’s clinic, is at ease around strangers, and more. In other words, the best dog ever.
