Expanded Description:

If you're like most dog owners, you want a trustworthy companion you can take on family vacations, to ball games, on hikes, and to cafes and festivals. You want your dog to behave when you have guests, stay peacefully at hotels, ride calmly in elevators, and maintain proper doggie decorum in all kinds of situations.

Chances are, you've watched and admired assistance and therapy dogs who are attentive to their owners' needs no matter what. This book taps into the secrets of assistance and therapy dog trainers and shows you how to use focused foundation socialization training to make sure your dog is well behaved--even in unfamiliar environments loaded with distractions and temptations. It goes beyond typical behavioral training and basic commands and covers:

* Evaluating your dog and recognizing traits that will affect her needs

* Using reward-based processes to teach complex behaviors and self-discipline

* Creating a socialization program that makes your dog focused on you and confident in different environments

* Reading your dog so you can anticipate her reactions and keep her focused on your directions

With these sophisticated training techniques, you'll turn your family pet into a sociable, take-anywhere dog who will always be welcome!

Enlightening, August 19, 2011
Reviewer: Christine Beavers
This book touched on the relationship and bond of training a dog to assist, but doesn't quit give all that was needed to precisely train your dog for service, but since this book is not designed for training a dog for service, it hit right on the mark for what they were striving for and that is taking the training of the normal household pet and turning your pet into a well behaved and socially accepted member of your family. This book was a great read and only encouraged me more to seek even more knowledge and achieving the type of relationship I am looking for with my dog which is way beyond the normal sits and downs. Fantastic!
 
Everything I'm glad I learned, April 13, 2011
Reviewer: Kathy Medel
What an awesome book. I am a trainer and also employ positive techniques. I have recently begun therapy dog work and this book is my new bible. What a great resource for socialization and training. I have tabbed and highlighted throughout the book and have given copies to my dog lover friends and recommended it to my therapy dog colleagues.
 
A delicious first course!, February 25, 2011
Reviewer: Paula Lancaster
In about 1974 I quit training and showing dogs. I felt bad about the yank and jerk methods that were the norm back then. When I began to do rescue work and came back to the world of dogs I came across this book and bought it. I was delighted with it and read it straight through. Because of this book I dove into learning positive training and use that knowledge to help the dogs who come through our rescue. It is not a how-to, but more a testament to the value of positive training methods and a very good read.
