Expanded Description:

It’s More Than Just Fun and Games!
Teaching a dog training class is not easy. Not only do you need to be a skilled trainer, you need to keep a group of dogs and people focused and motivated. The use of training games to teach new behaviors and improve others is one way to make your classes more successful. Author Terry Ryan is recognized by dog trainers worldwide as the expert in using training games to help improve performance of both canine and human students. The 70 plus games in this new book will get your creativity flowing and allow you to “Gamify” your training classes.

What experts are saying about Gamify Your Dog Training
Terry Ryan never disappoints, and this is classic Terry Ryan at her best; I marvel at (and envy!) her creativity and ability to put joy and fun into training. If you can’t find dozens of wonderful games in this book to liven up your training classes, you aren’t trying!
Pat Miller, author of Beware of the Dog and Play With Your Dog.

An excellent guide to creative games that allow participants and dogs to safely improve their skills together. The strategies and varying levels of difficulty will allow anyone to set up games that are safe, successful, and fun!
Nicole Wilde, author So You Want to be a Dog Trainer, Help for Your Fearful Dog, and Don’t Leave Me!

What a terrific collection of games to create fun and memorable dog training sessions! This book is chock full of great ideas to enliven training for people of all ages... and dogs enjoy it more when their people are having fun, too! Terry’s sections on implementation are important for setting people and dogs up for success. If you believe that learning should be fun, then this book is for you!!
Risë VanFleet, author of The Human Half of Dog Training and Play Therapy with Kids & Canines.

This book will give coaches, students, pet owners, and especially the dogs an endless supply of new ways to have fun together. Terry Ryan succinctly and amusingly shows you games for beginners, team games with props (making the props is part of the fun), and challenging games for the advanced dogs (retrieving a roll without eating it?) Try them all!
Karen Pryor, author Don’t Shoot the Dog and Reaching the Animal Mind.

I have attended Terry’s classes in person and keeping things fun is one of her strengths as an instructor. These games are not just entertaining and useful for the people; I love that Terry points out things to watch for to make sure that the dogs are having fun, too!
Grisha Stewart, author of BAT 2.0: New Practical Techniques for Fear, Frustration, and Aggression in Dogs.

Terry Ryan, the singular godmother of games for dogs and their people, has done it again. Gamify Your Dog Training provides a cutting edge resource of clearly described and incredibly fun training games for dog owners and every type of dog training instructor.
Mary R. Burch, AKC Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog Director.

When I think of Dogs and Games and making training fun for the dogs, owners and onlookers, I always think of Terry Ryan. Playing games with your dog is the best way to engage your dog’s attention and as such, the quickest and certainly, the most enjoyable way to train. Dogs quickly learn that training is fun and that fun has rules. My favorites of Terry’s games have always been Dogzilla for sheer exuberance, Dueling Dogs for lightning fast control and Musical Chairs for rock-solid down stays. Read Terry Ryan’s Gamify Your Dog Training and your dog will be forever grateful. Game on!
Dr. Ian Dunbar, Founder, Association of Professional Dog Trainers

Terry Ryan is a noted author, trainer and instructor. She has been a leading proponent of effective, force free training methods. She continues to help local clients, yet maintains a busy international workshop schedule. She and her husband Bill, and flock of chickens, live on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Terry is a faculty member of the Karen Pryor Academy and the author of Coaching People to Train Their Dogs and The Toolbox for Building a Great Family Dog.

Games Galore, April 22, 2017
Reviewer: Cheri Spaulding
I just received Gamify Your Dog Training. I have already started planning games for my classes and gathering supplies. There is a game for every skill level and occasion, some games require a bit of planning, like Dogzilla, but there are supply ideas and clear rules for the game. I can't wait to set up the city of Tokyo and then release Dogzilla. The 3-Banana Party is simple set up and a good foundation game for a beginning class. Of course, tunnel of love will be the perfect recall game for February. I'm so glad I both this book, it will make classes entertaining.
