The Dog Tricks Workbook is a follow-up guide to Kyra's best-selling 101 Dog Tricks. This new book integrates 30 foundational tricks with a curriculum designed for readers to track and gauge your dogs progress. With 150 color photos and illustrations, the workbook explores integral behavior and training concepts, which enhance not only the dog's performance, but also the overall relationship between dog and owner. The accompanying deck of 30 trick cards illustrates the step-by-step the tricks themselves, and instructions are excellent teaching tools for the working, training, and bonding sessions outlined in the workbook.
