Format: Paperback
This is a great book for anyone who is interested in training and wants to compete in obedience with a small dog. I am training my first small dog and realized I couldn't train him the same way as my Golden Retrievers. This book is jam packed with useful information and will take you from Novice A through Utility. It outlines a complete training program and arranges skills by catagory instead of training just for Novice, then for Open, etc. It is written in a clear and concise manner that can be understood by beginners, yet I wouldn't call this a "beginners" book only. All training is done using positive reinforcement. It really helps keep dogs "up" so that trainig isn't boring. There is a section on Puppy or Pre-training so even if you have an older dog, the methods can still be applied. It explains what equipment is necessary and honestly covers the difficulties of showing a small dog vs. the typical larger breeds seen in competetive obedience. If you are really serious about competitive obedience, I highly recommend the video set by the same title. It has even more information and gives great visuals to go with the book. If you are just considering showing your small dog in OB, this is a great book to give you an idea of what it takes.

Got my first Toy breed, coincidentally a Papillon, and it's a whole new world of training after starting with Alaskan Malamutes. Paps are so SHORT!!! This is helping me make the transition so hopefully my dog and I will enjoy great success in the obedience ring.

Whether you've got a toy breed or not, this book is an EXCELLENT resource for the competitve obedience enthusiast. In addition to lots of sound training advice, the authors give lots of great SPECIFIC advice about footwork and handling that isn't found in most general obedience books, which focus entirely on the dog's performance, rather than regarding obedience as the team sport it truly is.

then pick up this book for you and your little companion. Barbara has had many trials and tribulations with her own dogs which she has chosen to share with us. The hints given are tried and true. Over the years there have been others who have mimicked Ms. Cecil but this is THE FOUNDATION for your toy/small dog with lasting results.

This is THE book for learning how to train small dogs! Great book with lots of good tips by both authors who both have small dogs with multiple obedience titles. It is different training a small dog vs. a large dog and this is the book to help you out! I highly recommend it. I wish I had had this book sooner as I started training my small dog for competitive obedience.

This is an excellent book that focuses on the challenges faced by people training short dogs. We have Cardigan Welsh Corgis which are not "small", but are short. Easy to read, very practical.

Already had this book but left it elsewhere. Good enough to get a second copy. Lots of great advice for working with tiny dogs, smallest dog I've ever owned. Looking forward to putting the practice into competition.

The bible for people training a tiny. They are NOT the same as big dogs and need different methods. It also breaks things down into smaller steps, so easier to avoid little mistakes in performance. GREAT, thank you Barbara
