Expanded Description:

This book is the first in a series of books designed for the dog sport enthusiast. This first book will focus on developing a competition foundation based in Engagement and relationship.

It doesn't matter what genetic package or temperament your dog is born with; you can bring out the best in your dog! To train your dog, you must develop a relationship that encourages a willing and happy attitude with natural focus while eliminating undue stress in both training and competition.

If your goal is to create a world-class performance dog, then this book is for you. We can help you refine your engagement and relationship skills to a higher level.

If you are an instructor who is struggling with your novice students or less focused dogs, then this book is for you. You will find advice on how to work with a range of canine temperaments.

If you have a dog who works well at home but you can’t seem to maintain that connection in public, then this book is for you. You will learn the basics of recognizing stress, paying attention to your dog, and alleviating or minimizing problems so that you can focus on work rather than worry.

Finally, if you simply want to take the dog you have, your personal pet, and enjoy your training at a more fulfilling level, then this book is for you as well! By understanding and applying excellent engagement and relationship building techniques, both you and your canine companion will find more enjoyment in the training process, even if you choose never to step foot inside a competition ring.

The chapters will cover relationship (what it is and how to get it), Stress (recognizing it and techniques for lessening it's impact), Developing focus, Explaining and evaluating positive methods for getting behaviors, and the use of trick training to develop a handler's training skills and a dog's mental and physical flexibility.

Great resourse, April 5, 2014
Reviewer: CMunden
Dog Sports Skills, Book 1: Developing Engagement and Relationship is well written with the emphasis on building the foundation of focus and respect with your dog. A good read overall.
 
Excellent Start To A New Series!, November 27, 2013
Reviewer: Jaime Powell
“Dog Sports Skills, Book 1: Developing Engagement and Relationship” is a solid addition to my dog training library. The book is appropriate for a wide spectrum of experience levels and training methods. Rather than focusing on how to teach specific competition skills, this book addresses the more fundamental issue of developing a working relationship with your dog. Beyond the substantive information, the book is well written in a clear, engaging style. I am looking forward to more installments in the series.
