BARRON'S Training Your Dog Series

Books in this series speak exclusively to the task of dog training and tell you what you need to know about the distinctive traits of individual breeds. You'll find information on virtually every aspect of training, starting with housetraining, then progressing to basic obedience, walking your dog on a leash, teaching obedience using verbal commands and hand signals, and much more. Special behavior problems are also covered. You'll learn humane methods of eliminating canine bad habits such as begging, jumping on visitors, nipping, and unnecessary barking.

Filled with instructive illustrations and full-color photos

Training Your German Shepherd Dog


Here's practical instruction in humane, reliable, and understandable techniques you can use to teach your German Shepherd how to behave as a well-mannered and well-trained companion. The typical German Shepherd has an even temperament, is quite intelligent, and highly trainable. He will learn to follow basic commands as well as more complex disciplines, such as herding, agility, search-and-rescue, and more. In this book, author and veterinarian Dan Rice takes you through time-honored training methods that will result in a good relationship between you and your dog.

This book covers the German Shepherd well. The comments on the temperament, and versatility of this breed cover well the breed's many qualities. The author's obvious knowledge of not only the breed, but the perspective trainer is most helpful. A MUST READ for owners of all ages of German Shepherd!

Great ideas for positive reinforcement training described in this book. It seems obvious to me that author Dan Rice loves German Shepherds; It comes across throughout the entire book.

We are getting a new German Shepherd puppy soon, and I have been reading almost anything I can get my hands on that is considered authoritative in the field of dog training (I have learned a lot from Dr. Ian Dunbar's books and videos, for example).

This book,," Training Your German Shepherd" by Dan Rice was one of the more helpful books specifically about training a German Shepherd. The information was very specific in technique and theory, and there was a thorough background on the history of the German Shepherd Dog, as well as modern standards and practices. I found it helpful to skim past the first few chapters to get to the training techniques and theory- that part was really helpful to me.

This book was well-planned and executed. It was organized into a logical and interesting approach, with a concise writing style. It begins with an extensive background of the dog, then basic puppy obedience, and progressively offers ideas for advanced training methods for older GSD dogs. This goes way beyond other books about German Shepherds!

I would recommend it to a new puppy owner, as well as someone considering a more advanced training program. It should make a useful book for future reference.

I'm a newbie when it comes to German Shepherds and I had a lot of questions about how to train them. This book answered all the basic beginner questions and answered more that I never even thought of. I found it easy and enjoyable to read. There wasn't a bunch of technical terms and the few there was were very thoroughly explained. If you're new to this then get this book. It's way cheaper than any book I've found at any pet store with twice the useful information.

Love this book! Very informative with the history and the general personality of the german shepherd. I also enjoyed the tips for raising a puppy. My favorite part of the book are the detailed training exercises and the games you can play with your shepherd. I also enjoyed the information about the more advanced training such as canine good citizen certificate, obedience, agility, tracking, hearding, search and rescue; as well as some games you can play associated with each type of advanced training! I have an 8 year old german shepherd (adopted at 4 years of age) so i wanted more information on new training other than just sit, lay, stay and heel, but less intense than agility (with hip dysplasia major activity is limited). She loves fetching her ball and tug of war and thanks for this book she enjoys hide and seek, and tracking. This book is also very informative for preparing for our next shepherd we plan on purchasing at 6-8 weeks of age.

My father trained dogs as a sideline business when I was young so I had some knowledge of dog training. This book helped me with training my son's German Shepherd since they are quite a bit smarter than the short haired pointers my dad use to train. The trouble is there are so many dog training books out there that I am not sure where this fits in amongst all the others. I got some good tips from it. I would recommend buying a couple different books and getting some good tips from each one. But I would recommend it.

I was interested in learning more specifics about how to train for certain commands. There was some good basic information but I was looking for more. It's a good starter book for someone who has never had a dog.
