Expanded Description:

Winner of the Maxwell Award from the Dog Writer's Association of America for Best Training Book for 2016!

What do science and art have to do with dog training? The science teaches you the nuances of how dogs learn. The art helps you to be more clear and inventive if your dog doesn’t quite understand what you want. You will learn about breaking down behaviors using a positive, proactive approach which is a big part of the modern process of dog training.

Step by step instructions will help make what may seem insurmountable into something much simpler. This book will take you through it all:

• A look at the science behind modern training techniques and why they really work.
• Expert advice on basic training – sit, down, stay, come, door etiquette and loose leash walking.
• Addressing jumping, biting, stealing and other misbehaviors.
• Helping your dog become a Canine Good Citizen.

Life mirrors dog training. The effort you put in now will yield you many rewards, both immediately and for years to come.

What experts are saying about You Can Train Your Dog!:
Pam Dennison has done it again! She has written a fabulous book about training dogs that will benefit both the pet owner and novice or professional instructor. This in-depth volume bears Pam’s signature stamp of breaking tasks into small steps that make learning effective and fun for dog and human alike. When I think of Pam, I think of someone who really “gets” dogs and who stands out in her ability to teach using practical, simple, realistic, and effective dog-friendly methods. This wonderful book is chock full of easy to follow approaches that work with family dogs, working dogs, high-performance dogs, and dogs with problems. It is precisely because of its practicality and comprehensiveness that I plan to use this book in my Animal-Assisted Play Therapy training program. This is an absolute must-read for everyone who trains their own or others’ dogs!
(and an additional review from Rise on her Animal Assisted Play Therapy Group!): It is now the required text for our Essentials of Behavior & Training online course. Pamela Dennison has a rare gift for covering dog training information in very clear, practical terms, and this book is full of her wisdom and huge experience training dogs using positive approaches. I think all dog owners should read it and apply what’s in it, but it’s particularly useful for those working with their dogs for therapy work. I’ve read it over twice now (once to provide an endorsement), and I’ve gotten new things from it every time (and I’m a credentialed dog trainer with a fair amount of experience, as well as a mental health professional with a background in Applied Behavior Analysis as well as play therapy). It’s easy to read and packed with useful methods and tips.

Wow! This book has it all. From basics and animal husbandry through to Premack and control games. If we had more well planned books like this in our stores there would be less problem dogs on our streets! Pamela does a great job of deciphering the science behind dog training in this user friendly guide to having a great dog!

I love how Pam makes the science and art of training a dog understandable for all caregivers. By using this book you will not only understand how your dog learns, but teach him step by step many important behaviours; from preparing him for vet visits to teaching him to walking on a loose lead. You can enhance the relationship you have with your dog and the relationship he has with you by reading this excellent book.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW?, October 14, 2015
Reviewer: Ron Bevacqua,CDT
Pam Dennisons long awaited book : YOU CAN TRAIN YOUR DOG! MASTERING THE ART & SCIENCE OF MODERN DOG TRAINING is disappointing..... because its content reflects just another how to book ( its been done so many times before ) . And this book shows very little imagination when all is said and done.
I would save my money and put it towards one of her on line courses or dvds ....there your money well be well spent !
 
A MUST READ FOR BOTH EXPERIENCED AND NEW TRAINERS, October 29, 2015
Reviewer: Laura Ashtyani, RN,BSN
Wow! 'You Can Train Your Dog!' should be a staple to every dog trainer's library. I have shown and trained dogs for over 25 years. I initially thought that this book might be 'too basic' for me, but purchased it because I had enjoyed some of Pam's other books(Click your way to Rally Obedience & Bringing Light to Shadow). Well, I was wrong! I can't believe how much I didn't know and how much I could still learn. Pam's book has taught me the basics behind modern dog training. I now know exactly how, why and when to feed that 'cookie'. Pam does a great job explaining the science behind positive training and why it works & then she tells you exactly what to do to get the behaviors you want. Also, lots of stuff in there about dog & human body language interactions. I too had used punishment methods to train in the past but, after reading this book I will NEVER use it again!! I now know why it doesn't work. I'm keeping my book on the coffee table as a reference. This book will be helpful to both new dog owners (trainers) and those of us who 'thought' we knew everything about training. Thank you, Pam I have already purchased another copy for a friend who is working with her Great Pyrenees rescue.
 
Good book for new and experienced dog owners, November 4, 2015
Reviewer: Dorothy Schneck, dog sports competitor
There is a wealth of information packed between the covers of this book that is important for new trainers to hear and for experienced trainers to hear again. Pam deals with the nuts and bolts of daily living with dogs and the positive techniques used today in training for dog sports. She presents the science and then goes on to give real life examples of how that science is applied in training. All this is done in a very readable (and often humorous) style. This book is definitely a permanent addition to my library of dog training books.
 
Great reading, November 11, 2015
Reviewer: Ingrid Groeger-Stone
Pam explains the science behind learning so new owners or trainers new to positive reinforcement based training can easily incorporate it into everyday life. And it has lots of useful information for more experienced trainers as well. As a vet I particularly liked the chapter on animal husbandry training and I will recommend the book to my clients.
 
Seriously, You'll Love this Book!!!, February 16, 2016
Reviewer: Joyce Hagan, Positive Dog Trainer
As a dog trainer, you know what you know, but how can you communicate it to your clients? This book does it for you. Whether you're a trainer or an owner, you will benefit from this new book. Pam has the ability to make it all easily understandable. I lent this book to a client. I had a some pages marked for her to read. A few days later she called me to say she had read the entire book and a lightbulb went off. She was now understanding the 'why' and' how' of what we were trying to do to help her rescue dog. She commented that it was so easy to read. To me, this the value of this book. Pam has the knowledge of trainer and the gift to communicate it well. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn. This all comes as no surprise if you have looked at her previoius books!!! This one's a keeper!!!
 
Best Training Book Ever, September 7, 2016
Reviewer: Shirley Richards, CPDT-KA
If you are a dog trainer or just love dogs this book is a must read. I have been reading dog training books for 20 plus years and it is the BEST one out there. It's easy to read and understand. Once you start reading it you won't want to put it down. Your dogs will love you for all of the positive training methods used.
