    Dr. Helmut Raiser breaks down the essential components to training a Schutzhund/IPO dog. He gives a practical guide on how to shape a dogs behavior through various exercises. The drawback to this book is that it does not cover the precision movements that a training decoy/helper needs to elicit a specific response from a dog.
