About the Author
Kyra Sundance is a world-acclaimed stunt dog show performer, celebrity dog trainer, and internationally best-selling author. An award winning author, Kyra's numerous dog-training books include the international best-selling 101 Dog Tricks, which sold over a half-million copies in 18 languages, and is one of the top dog training books of all time.
Kyra's acrobatic stunt dog team performs worldwide and starred in shows for the king of Morocco at the royal palace in Marrakech, in Disney's Underdog stage show in Hollywood, and in circuses and professional sports halftime shows. They performed on The Tonight Show, Ellen, Animal Planet, and had their own television series called Showdog Moms & Dads.
Kyra is nationally ranked in competitive dog sports and is a set trainer for movie dogs. As a lecturer on positive training methods, her enthusiasm inspires audiences to develop fun and rewarding relationships with their own dogs. Her methods foster confident, happy dogs who are motivated to do the right thing rather than ones fearful of making a mistake. She shows us how to develop joyful relationships with dogs who balance enthusiasm with self-control.

Don't like - too many steps are missing! The leap from taking a basic step toward the end trick is fairly significant in some cases. I also purchased a book on scent-oriented games, which detailed some of the same activities (ie find the keys) in much greater detail -- and, in my mind, more effectively.
I think this book might be a starting point if you have a highly motivated and intelligent dog (poodle, lab, etc.), but the tricks explained are not great for me and my hound.
My only issue with this book is a minor one. The book is very simple, and does a great job of breaking down complex steps into a few that are easy to understand. The inverse of this is that because it's simplified it excludes potentially helpful detail. For example, for the 'stay' command, it doesn't specify whether you should give a 'sit' or 'lay' command before giving the 'stay' command. And if you do, should you reward this trick first? Or just proceed directly to stay? My puppy seems to get confused and just begins trying other tricks he knows when 'sit' doesn't seem to work.
Overall, it's a great book and still gives alternate suggestions when certain things don't work.
