Have fun while training! This method gives your dog choices, then you simply reward him for making the correct choice. This gives him credit for being an intelligent, sensitive creature who enjoys working when we allow him to think for himself. This happy attitude assures your dog will work joyfully and correctly--in other words, he will love to work!! Stresses the drive instinct in the dog, and is a step-by-step manual to teach you how to train your dog for winning obedience. Popular with both Schutzhund and competitive obedience customers. Deals with the novice exercises: heeling, sit, stay, down, stand, recall.

This book helped me with clients who had a young dog they wanted trained for protection. I was able to explain the importance of obedience in the process, and why we had to lay the foundation, specific to the protection training. They have done amazing work, and I’m very pleased with the outcome!
