From the Back Cover

Learn how to train your dog simply, humanely and effectively! This book will help you teach your dog basic skills like coming when called, heeling and walking on a leash. Even more, it will help you accomplish these things with a minimum of frustration and worry and a maximum of love.

Author Liz Palika's training philosophy is based on the bond between owner and pet. She focuses both on making the relationship between you and your dog stronger through training, and making your training time more effective by starting out with a good relationship. Your positive approach is the key to your dog's successful training. Delightful drawings by award-winning artist Pam Posey-Tanzey remind us that, above all, working with your dog should be fun!

Format: Paperback
This book is a book for anyone who wants a great, loving dog, that is well trained. It explained how to teach your dog the easiest of tasks, like the sit, come, stay, and many more. One option this book had that many other dog training books don't have is a complete chapter on what to play with your dog, and an advanced training section. If you want a dog, that is reliable, good, and intelligent this book is great to read. I did find some of the ways to train your dog physcological, but in the end, it made a ton of sense, and made you think, "Why didn't I think of that?" The illistrations also made it even more understanding, because they showed you what the book ment if you didn't quite understand a segment. Truly, this book is an excellent book.

This book is excellent in teaching you how to train your dog in a loving manner that earns the respect of the dog. It is one that you can read and say; that is easy enough, I can do that! This book explains not only what to do but why you need to do it that way, helping you understand the way your dog thinks and therefore, how to teach your dog in a way that he can understand what you are asking of him. After ordering one book for myself, I am back to order more of this title to send home with the pups I have to be sold soon. I feel I can really insure a better chance for a happy new life for these pups by sending this book home with each new owner!

I really like this book. It's easy to read, quick, and a great guide. I love Palika's writing style because she says a lot with few words, she gets her point across then moves on to the next one and her books are always informational.

The book is about why dogs should know more than sit and down, and how to teach them. It covers obedience and some games and other activities you can do. It's not a step by step "this is how you make your dog sit", it's an easy to approach "I've got a dog, he knows sit, why should I teach him anything else? And if I should, what then?"
