Book Description

Does your dog bark excessively? Jump up on you or other people? Act aggressively toward visitors, children, or other dogs? Seem to have separation anxiety?

Your dog can learn to control his impulsivity and look to you for guidance in distracting or difficult situations. It starts by training Fido to automatically say pelase by sitting for treats, then for petting, and then for everything else he wants. in this booklet, Dr. Sophia A. Yin, veterinarian and animal-behavior expert, gives you an overview of her fun, reward-based Learn to Earn training program which will teach you how to provide leadership while training your dog to be patient and to look for you for guidance. This item contains 10 copies of the Learn to Earn Booklet. Perfect for sharing with clients and friends. For more information about Dr. Sophia Yin's Learn To Earn program see www.drsophiayin.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Beginners Guide to Greatness! April 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are new to getting into dogs and how they interact, then this is a great book. If you have young children capable of understanding a higher level of reading, this is a great book. You learn about animals and how and why they do what they do. It's not all about language, it's tone and body language. Great Book, glad I bought it.

The advice in this booklet mostly seems like a reasonable method for gaining control of your dog, but I wouldn't make my dog sit to be petted under every circumstance. I think the method she gives to teach the cue "leave it" would never work for a small dog that can slip right past you. Better to get the dog used to you having treats in your hand and treating with the other hand when they look away and working up to leaving treats on the floor that that can't reach then ones they can. Keep the dog focused on you and not the treats. Teaching your pet to sit before opening and going through doors and getting out of the car are necessary for safety.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best things you can do for your dog December 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a quick and easy read and is in a language that just about anyone can understand. With easy to follow instructions it leads you through a program that develops the dog's ability to control themselves by choice rather than force creating almost instant results that can be built upon over time. There is no magic here. If you follow the steps, you WILL have success. For the price, it is essential for almost any dog owner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Puppy Training is Vital! April 9, 2012
Format:Paperback
Excellent, logical layout and plenty of illustrations make this booklet an easy read for the whole family, while preparing for Puppy's arrival. Dr Yin's Learn To Earn-program is a very good foundation for young puppies and their new owners and should be encouraged by breeders and trainers alike. Take a week off work and spend it training your new puppy, and you will have prevented so many problems down the line, like jumping up, chewing, barking, pulling on leash, etc! A great 'how to'-book for pet owners and professionals alike.

More About the Author

Dr. Sophia Yin knows what it's like to have a problem pet and nowhere to turn for professional help. And she has witnessed countless fractured relationships between misunderstood pets and their frustrated humans companions.

As a result, her mission in life is to improve our understanding of animals and their behavior so that we can care for, appreciate and enjoy our time with them better.

Sophia learned that every pet needs a human who can lead. Not like a boss, but like a partner in a dance--someone who gives clear signals, rewards desirable behavior as it occurs, removes rewards for inappropriate behavior immediately, and sticks to the plan consistently until the new, good behavior is a habit.

Sophia's dedication to helping people communicate with pets in a positive, scientifically sound way has led her to create a variety of exceptional books and products for pet owners and pet-care professionals who also aspire to bond with their pets on a whole new level.

Dr. Sophia Yin currently sees behavior house calls, works at San Francisco Veterinary Specialists (www.SFVS.net), writes for several veterinary and popular magazines and has consulted for several zoos. She also lectures and teaches workshops internationally on animal behavior and low stress handling and has served as a behavior expert for shows such as Dogs 101 on Animal Planet. She is also on the executive board for the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) Handling Guidelines Committee, and the American Humane Association (AHA) Animal Behavior and Training Advisory Committee.
