Describes a six-week program to get people and dogs off on the right paw. Clear descriptions of humane and scientifically-based methods to teach basic exercises including sit, down, come, heel, stay and no jumping up. As importantly, the book emphasizes how to make training fun for those at both ends of the leash, and how to ensure reliable responses while still being your dog's best friend. Includes trouble-shooting tips for what to do when your dog hasn't read the training books and doesn't respond as expected. Equally useful for training classes or for people who are "home schooling." This is a book that many trainers will want their students to read.
