Training a small dog is different! This book is the result of experimenting and improvising, making mistakes and learning from them. Book is written so you can do most, if not all, of the teaching and training yourself, only joining a class for the experience of working your dog with other trained dogs prior to competition. Topics include: can a small dog be competitive, puppy and pre-training, training plan and philosophy, equipment, heeling for handler and dog, sit, down, stay, recall, finish, stands, retrieve, jumps, signals, drop on recall, directed retrieve, scent discrimination, handling. Authors train Papillons.
