Expanded Description:

Dog World Review, February 2012

Train your dog the positive way. Includes how to raise a puppy positively, how to build a strong relationship, manners training, teaching a really reliable recall, and how to train effectively without force. Special instructions in each section for companion dogs, competition obedience, agility and Schutzhund. Clearly explains both theory and technique, including The Golden Rule and The Ten Commandments of positive training. Easy-to-follow directions to teach sit, down, stand, heel, recall, finish, retrieving, jumping and send away. Special chapter on preparing for successful competition. Written with love of dogs and an understanding of training.

Sheila Booth has trained dogs in a variety of disciplines for 40 years, but she always considers her dogs primarily companions. She combines her profession as an editor/journalist with her passion for dogs, and hopes to help others make training more fun. She lives in Virginia with her dog and 2 cats (all from rescue).

Purely Positive Help, July 11, 2011
Reviewer: Millie Santandreu
I greatly enjoyed reading this book. It helped me understanding what seems to be known by more experienced trainers. Our dogs respond very well to the purely positive training methods in this book.

I highly recommend it to a newbie or a not so newbie trainer. There is nothing like a happy dog willing and wanting to learn.

Reviewer: Stevie Mathre
Sheila’s excellent at explaining what positive reinforcement training is all about. The most valuable aspects of this book for me were the first chapters talking about the principles of training. There’s a great description of the Premack Principle.
I read it whenever I get discouraged about positive training.
 
Pawsitively Delightful, May 4, 2006
Reviewer: Sophia
Finally, a book that proves that competition behaviors can be taught positively and still effectively. This book is very thorough and although it uses technical terminology at times, the author makes sure that the terms are well explained, so that even a beginning trainer can benefit. If you like this one, you'll also love 'Schutzhund Obedience: Training in Drive'.
