Expanded Description:

Train your dog to love showing!
Most people learn how train their show dog by trial and error—emphasis on “error.” Much of the information about show dog training is learned by ringside observation or word-of-mouth from experienced exhibitor to novice. The results are mixed—some things work well, while others don’t—and you may not know why!

Positive Training for Show Dog is the first book to apply the latest scientific research on how dogs learn to the world of dog showing. Whether you are just getting started in the breed ring or are an experienced show dog handler, you will enjoy learning how to work with your dog as your partner to get outstanding showing results by using positive reinforcement without punishment.

What you will learn
• How to crossover from correction-based training to reward-based training.
• The role of the clicker and other reward markers in your training and problem solving.
• Methods for key show ring skills like gaiting, stacking, and standing for examination.
• Positive solutions to common show dog predicaments including fear of the judge, poor head position, picture taking problems, and more.

Professionals applaud Positive Training for Show Dogs

Step-by-step, Vicki Ronchette “pawsitively” leads exhibitors to success. Ever had a stunning dog who hated the camera? This book shows us a beautiful picture is a snap. Positive Training covers training from nails to tails.

What reviewers are saying...

DOG WORLD
“Ronchette’s instruction manual is derived from two decades experience as a professional trainer. In addition to conformation, she competes in several performance events. In all of these, she utilizes positive techniques such as luring, shaping, targeting, and clicker training that have become staple tools of so much training methodology. The book covers all the basics of choosing leads, using bait, free stacking, hand stacking, and gaiting. Each one is carefully explained and readers are guided through their application. The author provides abundant suggestions to deal with common frustrations such as dogs that hate table exams or persistently sit down in the ring. There is no shortage of advice on socializing puppies, keeping your dog calm, and reinforcing a positive attitude. She also explains the use of desensitization and counter-conditioning to revise problem behaviors… The book is presented as a guide for both novice and expert but confines its scope to the basics. Overall, it’s a valuable guide for beginners and handlers interested in repurposing positive training techniques to a new sport.” Amy Fernandez

Reviewer: Kathy King
My two champion dachshunds and I are living proof that Vicki's methods work. Both the dogs and I were new to the show ring when we joined her conformation classes and I was very glad that she has now published what she practices so well.
