Expert Help for Difficult House Training Problems
Some owners can house train their dogs without having to call on an expert. But when people experience difficulty with house training, it can lead to a variety of very serious consequences for the dog and frustration for the owner. While most trainers can offer standard house training advice for puppies, dealing with on-going problems with older dogs—fear based peeing, male marking, soiled crates—may be beyond the scope of what a dog trainer is equipped to handle.
Hard to House Train by Peggy Swager is designed to be the go-to reference guide for trainers who encounter difficult house training cases. With in-depth information on proven techniques as well as how to deal with the underlying behavioral problems (both dog and human!) which underlie them, this book should be part of your reference library.
