Training your dog can be easy and rewarding, or one of the most frustrating things you can do. I have read countless dog training books that are either too heavy or too light, too harsh or too soft, too detailed, or not detailed enough. They generally present the same basic information, but in different ways, or using different methods. It can get very confusing to know what techniques will work for you and your dog, and you can waste a lot of time and money looking for that magic silver bullet that will make your dog the angel you always dreamed that they would be. I found Renea's new book to fall right in the middle. Utilizing sound techniques she leads you and your dog down a path that will take you step by step through the maze of training methods straight to the ones that work. She describes the fundamentals in a way that make sense without being too confusing or overly wordy. She presents lessons in a logical order where things learned build up to things to be learned. She... More > doesn't skip any important steps, but doesn't bore you with unnecessary details. Renea also has a delightful way of using humor to get her points across. Whether you have read every other book out there, or you are looking for your first dog training book, I highly recommend this one. I have been training and working with dogs for most of my life, and I learned a lot about my own bad habits and poor training technique from this book. She uses novel methods to get you and your dog on a path to success quickly and without a lot of fuss even if you think you know everything there is to know about dog training, you will find something novel in here that will iron out wrinkles in your technique that you didn't realize were there. This book will have you and your dog on track to "happily ever after" in short order. If rating systems were based on cuts of pork, Renea would be the bacon of the dog training world.< Less
Renea has written a comprehensive, easy to follow workbook for establishing a great relationship with your dog. Those new to training their canine companions as well as those looking for a kinder, gentler, force-free way to train will find step-by-step instructions to guiding their dog to become a well-mannered member of the family. Useful training tips are scattered throughout. Highly recommended!
This training manual is a must in any dog owners' toolbox. The valuable lessons are informative and easy to understand in a format that lends itself to your dog's success. All dogs and owners will benefit from Renea's experience and teaching style, visuals, and worksheets for each session. The fundamental skills are so important--if you have a dog, get this book now!
Renea brings experience and compassion to the forefront of training in this easy to follow training manual. She explains concepts that are often difficult for new dog owners to understand in clear, simple terms and then applies them to fundamental skills that every dog should know. This is a book that belongs on all dog lovers' book shelves.
