Expanded Description:

(MINOR SHIPPING DAMAGE)Winner of the DWAA Maxwell Award for 2013, APDT Canine Life and Social Skills (C.L.A.S.S.)

The author of Maxwell Award winner Canine Body Language and Get Connected with Your Dog brings you a book that will make your dog owning experience with your new puppy or rescue dog everything you dreamed it would be!

Brenda Aloff on Puppies…
This book goes beyond any of the other puppy books out there and brings you Brenda's 20 years of experience working with problem dogs as a professional pet behavior consultant. Training your dog should be a shared and fun experience that enhances the relationship you have with your dog. This book will lead you through each "problem" and in an easy to understand step-by-step program will show you how to make big differences in your dog's behavior.

Puppy Problems comes with a DVD that shows you exactly how to carry out the protocols in this book. Take a look at the Table of Contents. It is filled with all of those common, but irritating issues that come up in daily life with a new puppy or dog and solutions for each one. The DVD is super and even children can watch the training steps and then be able to follow the steps to gain success with your family pet. (Of course, children will need parental supervision, as well.)

You will learn:
• Create a teaching language so that you and your dog have understanding instead of confusion.
• Learn how to Mark and reinforce behaviors you want to encourage.
• Use the exercises shown in the DVD to build your training skills and have a dog that is well-trained and joyful.
• Solve common problems that almost every dog exhibits at one time or another.

What dog professionals are saying about Brenda Aloff’s Puppy Problems? No Problem!
New book AND IT IS FABULOUS! Everyone who has ever had a puppy, has had problems. What a great source of information and help from a lady who knows.
Pat Hastings, AKC Judge, lecturer, author and producer of the Puppy Puzzle

Finally! A dog trainer and behavior expert who has written a book which doesn't take another dog trainer to interpret! Having a radio show about all things D-O-G, I research every avenue I can find to gather creditable information for my listeners. This book provides comprehensive and reader friendly help for those who are raising puppies or have a new dog that they have rescued. It's fun, factual and full of great illustrative pictures.
Pat Becker, Host of Speak! Talk Radio, producer of PBS Special “The World of Dogs”

Author Brenda Aloff is a professional dog trainer specializing in problem behavior. A large part of her practice consists of dogs that have been referred to her when traditional training techniques have failed. She works with owners on re-socialization of fearful and aggressive dogs as well as teaching puppy socialization, competition obedience, conformation, tracking, back-packing, musical freestyle, and agility classes at Heaven On Arf Behavior and Training Center in Midland, Michigan. She is a member of The Association of Dog Obedience Instructors, Trainer’s Forum and several other breed and training organizations. Brenda travels all over the world giving talks on canine aggression and learning theory.

Not just another book on puppy training. Five Paws, February 16, 2012
Reviewer: Mary Lightner
I hesitated to buy still another book on puppy training, but a colleague told me about a technique that Brenda Aloff used called “be still” that I thought just might work with some rambunctious adolescents that their owners were struggling with in my basic obedience class. This method and other ones taught by Aloff, provided me with something that operant conditioning did not; a hands-on approach to quieting a dog.

Though I am among the biggest fans of clicker training, the longer I train the more I see it does not offer the best solution for every problem and every dog I encounter. In fact, a disadvantage is that it may discourage our handling of dogs, which is very important for a variety of reasons. Thus, Aloff provides a positive way of touching dogs that fills a gap in training for me.

Another unique aspect of Aloff’s book and DVD on raising and training puppies, is her use and explanation of “pressure” in working with dogs. Using our bodies to communicate and train dogs is a powerful tool in working with a species whose first language is the body (not verbal as is ours.) After seeing the documentary movie, “Buck,” I recognized this as a tool that Buck Buchanan employs as “the horse whisperer.” This method has opened up a new avenue for training that I am eagerly exploring under the tutelage of Aloff. I am optimistic that use of this skill may prevent many behavioral problems among the young dogs I see in my classes.

The concepts and techniques she sets forth might be difficult to fully grasp if not for the degree of detail she provides in the text in the book, the photos accompanying the verbiage, and videos on her DVD. The combination of teaching tools makes her guide understandable and the sheer volume of it easy to digest.

Thank you Dogwise, for bringing Aloff’s wisdom and novel training techniques to a broader audience of dog owners and instructors, who will certainly benefit from her knowledge and understanding of how to effectively and compassionately train dogs.
 
Must have for puppy fosterers or owners, October 10, 2011
Reviewer: SB
This book is easy to understand, includes photo's, worksheets, games and a DVD. The DVD mirrors the book, Brenda is clear, conise and easy to understand. ( and you can rewind!) I highly recommend this book to puppy fosterers, owners and anyone studying dog behavior. Shelter and rescue folk especially. Unlike many puppy books who only address perfect puppies, Brenda tackles all personalities with corrective protocals and graceful explanation. Thank you Brenda andThank you Dogwise. I am now refreshed and armed with new lessons and tools for my frustrated unnaturally weaned foster pups.
