Expanded Description:

(SLIGHTLY BENT CORNERS--DAMAGED IN SHIPMENT.)
Are you connected with your dog?
Getting connected with your dog is the key to building a relationship in which learning can flourish and the needs of both the dog and the owner are met. Relationships are built on communication, so having a common language that both sides can understand is of paramount importance. Luckily, dogs are masters of body language and you can learn to utilize movement and other kinds of body language to help build an effective communications loop with your dog.

Once you know how to communicate with your dog, that knowledge – combined with positive training techniques – can make you a much more effective trainer. And your dog will become a willing partner, one who trusts you and is willing to work with you to learn behaviors. Over time, your dog will flip the “Magic Switch” and begin to use the thinking part of his brain (the Frontbrain) more often than just the reactive part of his brain (the Hindbrain). And you will have achieved a huge step forward in your ability to train and interact with your canine companions!

Learn how to
• Use subtle body language your dog can understand to direct or redirect your dog’s movements.
• Be consistent and coherent in your interactions with your dogs.
• Mark and reinforce behaviors you want to encourage.
• Use exercises shown in the accompanying DVD to build you skill and confidence as a trainer.

THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
“5.0 out of 5 stars *A comprehensive, detailed, practical, experienced based, and thoroughly 'user friendly' manual from beginning to end*

For the past 12,000 years of human history, domesticated dogs have been man's constant companion, helper, and occasional food source. Dogs come in an immensely diverse profusion of breeds, sizes, and dispositions. A professional dog trainer specializing in canine problem behavior, Brenda Aloff has produced "Get Connected With Your Dog: Emphasizing The Relationship While Training Your Dog" a book/dvd combination training manual that will teach dog owners how to use the subtle language of the body to direct (or redirect) their dog's movements; how to be both consistent and coherent in their interactions with their dogs; and how to identify, mark, reinforce those behaviors to be encouraged from those behaviors to be extinguished. The accompanying 90-minute DVD provides exercises and illustrative examples for building skill and confidence as a trainer. Enhanced with 286 black-and-white photos and an extensive \index, "Get Connected With Your Dog" is an ideal, step-by-step training manual for first-time dog owners as well as aspiring and aspiring dog trainers. A comprehensive, detailed, practical, experienced based, and thoroughly 'user friendly' manual from beginning to end, "Get Connected With Your Dog" is an especially recommended addition to personal, professional, veterinary school, and community library reference collections and supplemental reading lists.” James A. Cox

DOGS: NEW SOUTH WALES
“Brenda Aloff brings you new ways to train your dog and to improve you understanding of how your dog perceives the communications you give to him. This is done by providing you with a series of exercises based on positive reinforcement training and a new set of protocols based on developing any relationship. This method of training has already helped numerous dogs and owners to have fun together and live in harmony. Once you know how to communicate with your dog, you can become a much more effective trainer. And you dog will become a more willing partner, one who trusts you and is willing to work with you to learn behaviors. Over time, your dog will learn to flip the ‘magic-switch’ and use the thinking part of his brain (the front brain) more often than the reactive part of his brain (the hindbrain). And you will have achieved a huge step forward in your ability to train and interact with your canine companion. This book includes a DVD with exercises to help build your confidence as a trainer.” Editor

NORTH SHORE NEWS
“There was a time when training a dog required forcing them to your will with no regard for the psychological implications on the dog. We’ve come a long way and today most trainers are much more in tune with building a relationship with your dog. Brenda Aloff had been working with dogs most of her life. She has published two previous books on training and produced accompanying DVD’s. Throughout her long career, Aloff has been fascinated by dog behavior. Her studies of dog body language and their social interaction helped develop her approach to effective communication with dogs and how to modify their behavior. In this incredibly detailed book, Aloff takes you through a step-by-step explanation of how to connect with your dog and guide him to the behavior you would like to see. Showing the same patience she uses with her canine students, she builds upon each lesson to help you understand not just the how the training, but also the why of it. As she explains how to work with your dog, Aloff tells what you should be doing and also what signals you should be seeing from your dog and to respond to those signals. With positive reinforcement and patience, these lessons will become easier for both of you. Throughout this book, black and white photographs illustrate the lessons being discussed and a DVD is also included with the book… There is so much information here that it is likely to become a handy reference book to return to again and again.” Terry Peters
