From the Back Cover
Since its initial publication, Beyond Basic Dog Training has achieved well deserved recognition as an innovative, unique guide to obedience instruction. Obedience authority Diane Baumans proven training philosophy asserts that the time has come to go beyond training dogs and start teaching them to please us. This has made a vital difference for those who use her methodand for dogs taught by it to succeed in competitive canine sports.
In this new, updated edition, Bauman presents the most current knowledge on canine learning patterns. Believing that dogs learn by trial and error, Bauman provides a novel approach that encourages dogs to learn by removing corrections for incorrect responses. As a result, dogs do not fear failure and are taught to exercise options in a quest for the desired behavior.
Bauman shows you how to become a "thinking handler" who can train the "thinking dog." Her remarkable ability to view training from the dogs perspective translates into an invaluable tool for building effective communication between you and your dog.
The instruction in this authoritative guide is behind Gaines "Superdogs," numerous obedience trial champions, and a host of other canine successes. If you want your dog to be happy, confident stimulated, and secure in the obedience ring, Beyond Basic Dog Training is the book of choice.

I bought this book a few years ago and thought it was good. Now that I have an (almost) UD dog, I went back to it..and this time with a highlighter! I should have paid more attention..but it's not too late. As Bauman says,"dogs retrain very well'. Terrific book. Highly instructive, well-written and motivating. Read, underline and re-read. If you're in (or want to be in) competition obedience and want to maximize your dog's talent, this is the book for you.
