Description

Whether you’re welcoming a new puppy into your family or want to help your best friend overcome fears or problem behaviors, internationally renowned dog trainer and best-selling author Kyra Sundance presents your essential reference for positive dog training.

Using a visually driven, playful presentation, Dog Training 101 offers step-by-step instructions to train your pup to be a happy, attentive, and well-mannered canine. You will use positive training methods—including humane counterconditioning and positive redirection—to build a joyful relationship with your dog, who will become a willing partner in the process.
 
Teach your dog basic commands, such as:

  • Sit
  • Down
  • Stay
  • Come
  • Drop it
  • Leave it

Learn real-world tactics for managing common household problems, such as:

  • Leash pulling
  • Jumping on visitors
  • Begging at the table
  • Getting into the trash can
  • Growling
  • Peeing (submissive, excited, and marking)

Kyra will also help you teach your pup to overcome common fears, among them:

  • Loud sounds
  • Being left alone
  • Certain people
  • Vacuum cleaner
  • The bathtub

This comprehensive guide also includes step-by-step advice for bringing a new dog into your household: preparing for a new dog’s arrival, tips for a smooth transition into the household, introducing him or her to your family, and acclimating your dog to his or her new world.

Fun games you can play with your dog offer both opportunities for bonding and a chance to practice rules and boundaries within a defined structure.

A “Good to Know” chapter offers an array of useful information, including the Heimlich maneuver for dogs, a list of weird things dogs do that are perfectly normal, and a list of common poisons.

Bond with your dog as you strive toward common goals with Dog Training 101.
