Expanded Description:

Learn the science and business of dog training from the BEST
The Association of Professional Dog Trainers, APDT, is the largest group of professional dog trainers in the world. Over the years its newsletter, The APDT Chronicle of the Dog, has published some of the best information on dog behavior, dog training, and the business of being a dog trainer available anywhere. Now this valuable information—80 articles by 40 authors—is brought together in The Dog Trainer’s Resource.

If you are thinking of a career choice or change, dog training is an excellent profession for those with an entrepreneurial spirit, leadership potential, and a love of dogs and people. But it takes a lot more than just being good with dogs to be successful. The modern dog trainer needs to develop expertise in several fields including animal behavior, human psychology, business management, and professional development and The Dog Trainer’s Resource will give you what you need to know!

Get the BEST information on
• Behavior modification, learning theory, and clicker training.
• How to separate training opinions from scientific research.
• Making your classes fun and interesting for both dog and human clients.
• Working with and for veterinarians to build your training business.
• How to run your dog training business for financial success.

What dog training professionals say about The Dog Trainer’s Resource.
…It serves and encompasses the true spirit of positive training and care for dogs…has managed to remain current in the rapidly-evolving field, while keeping an almost "we're all part of the family" feel. The APDT Chronicle of the Dog is one of the few dog magazines I actually read cover to cover and consistently use as a reference.
Paul Owen, author of The Dog Whisperer. A Compassionate, Nonviolent Approach to Dog Training

The Chronicle of the Dog is one of APDT's crown jewels. Its articles are consistently top-quality, scientifically sound, written by trainers and for trainers, containing invaluable insider discussions of the dog-training profession. For everyone from trainer wannabees to the experienced and successful training professional.
Pat Miller, author of Positive Perspectives: Love Your Dog, Train Your Dog and Positive Dog Training

Sets the standard for conveying high-quality, practical, extremely useful information to dog trainers in an attractive, easy-to-follow format. The training information keeps APDT members on the cutting edge of the dog training industry.
Nicole Wilde, author of It’s Not the Dogs, It’s the People and So You Want to Be A Dog Trainer

The Dog trainer’s Resource is aimes at helping trainers develop expertise in animal behavior, human psychology, and business management.” Editor

SOCIETY OF VETERINARY BEHAVIOR TECHNICIANS
“What an excellent collection of articles previously published by the Association of Professional Dog Trainers’ newsletter! This book is well organized and permits the reader to select a specific topic of interest. You do not necessarily have to read it in any specific order… The wide variety of articles will certainly appeal to lay readers, professional dog trainers, and veterinary professionals. What more could we ask for?!... There is so much more to educate not only dog trainers, but also the owner and veterinary staff. I think this book would prove beneficial to be on the shelf of anyone (not only professionals) that has a keen interest in dog behavior. The wealth of information and the practical application of the subject matter will clearly be a guide to anyone interested in training their dog. We could all profit from reading this text. Happy Reading! - 4.5 out of 5 paws” Mary Ellen Goldberg, BS, VMT, LVT, SRA

Good resource, January 22, 2009
Reviewer: SWalker
This was a good resource for a variety of topics. I did find that, because of that, it was a little hard to get through unless you were looking for something in particular. Lots of great info, just a little difficult to find things or navigate around the book.
 
Simply the Best, March 2, 2008
Reviewer: Amanda Pingston
This is simply the best compilation of authors, subjects and information there is out there. Read straight through or browse by subject, I guarantee you won't be disapointed in this book. For those of you studying for the CPDT, this is a must read! Let me rephrase that; anyone interested in dogs, this is a must read!
 
Readers Digest of Dog Experts, January 20, 2008
Reviewer: Barb Mattson
If there was such a thing as the Cliffs Notes of Dog Experts, this is it!

I love the variety packed into this book. I keep pulling it down off the shelf on a regular basis, since it has the best resources in one book. It is the next best thing to picking up the phone and calling the top dog trainers in the country.

This book is great for those with a progressive, open mind in the world of dog training. Would like to see this book in every Veterinarian's office!
