Training Dogs, book one in the Dog Behavior series, is a dog owner's guide to the basic principles, strategies, tactics, and practices in non-coercive dog training to promote a mutually reinforcing relationship and a harmonious household. It provides an accessible, yet scientifically accurate, exploration of the most current powerful non-coercive practices people can use in everyday life to improve the behavioral well-being of dogs and themselves.
Training Dogs, will emphasize (a) training at all times rather than in scheduled sessions, and (b) basic principles and strategies rather than just step-by-step instructions alone, so that dog owners may develop the knowledge and skill to train any behavior they wish.
