Description - Making Friends by Linda Colflesh

This title offers sensitive, user-friendly dog training that works! A good relationship with a dog is built on realistic expectations. The better you understand your dog's unique personality and natural behavior, the sooner you will establish a rapport based on two-way communication, mutual respect, and trust - and the easier it will be to train your dog successfully. One of the first positive training books, "Making Friends" is a highly accessible guide to training your dog effectively and humanely. Respected dog obedience trainer Linda Colflesh shows you how to use positive reinforcement through gentle, easy-to-follow methods that get results while respecting your dog's intelligence and dignity.From housebreaking and teaching everyday commands to grasping the important (but often overlooked) details of dog reaction and interaction, Colflesh outlines a week-by-week training plan that meets your needs and helps you build a strong connection with your furry companion. You'll discover how to: learn to 'read' your dog's body language; make proper use of collars, leashes, and treats; handle puppy behavior problems the positive way; keep your dog mentally stimulated and properly exercised; and, join dog clubs and play groups. Highly recommended by satisfied trainers, breeders, and pet owners, "Making Friends" is a proven, sensible, fun training method that lets you truly be your dog's best friend.
