From the Inside Flap
In easy steps, you can quickly determine your dog's "personality"-the interplay of prime motivations, energy level, work ethic, and emotional profile-to tailor a regimen optimally suited to his learning needs. Where "one-size" programs typically founder in canine chaos and human frustration, the Santo method carries you past failure: even when your dog doesn't respond, your understanding of him deepens and leads you to a better strategy. This unique interactive approach-based on the author's twenty years of experience-not only speeds canine learning but also lifts training from a temporary chore to an increasingly relaxed way of life.
The result is a lifetime of improving obedience-an ever more confident and happy dog, and an ever more gratifying relationship for you both.

I highly recommend this book, and I plan to keep it handy as a guide for dealing with the ingenious things my sometimes too smart border collie tries to get away with!
