Do you consider your dog part of the family? Most dog guardians do. But just like children, dogs need structure. Structure to show him that he shouldn't jump on every person who enters your house, or urinate indoors, or drag you down the road when you walk him. In DOG TRAINING IN 3 EASY STEPS, Julie Bjelland offers you clear and easy-to-follow steps to make your dog confident, secure and able to understand and follow rules. Drawing on years of experience, Julie teaches basic training, how to communicate with your dog, and how to prevent and solve behavior problems. She discusses puppies and adult dogs, even special needs dogs, and tells how to choose the right dog for your family and how to integrate him into a home with kids, other dogs, or cats.

Dog Training in 3 Easy Steps: How to Make Your Dog Confident, Secure, and Able to Understand and Follow Rules is an excellent digital companion to Bjelland’s hugely successful original book, Imagine Life With A Well-Behaved Dog. It details the steps in actually training your dog to be well-behaved through positive obedience, such as walking politely, coming when called, etc., but the original book is a more holistic approach to living with a dog (how to address and prevent specific behavior problems, crate training, house training, working with puppies, how to choose a dog for your family, what to consider with adopting, how to integrate the dog with your family/other pets etc.).
While obedience training is vitally important to being the guardian of a dog, all of these other life factors make Bjelland’s other book, Imagine Life With A Well-Behaved Dog a more comprehensive approach. Additionally, readers of Bjelland’s original book, Imagine Life With A Well-Behaved Dog have the added benefit of being able to access Bjelland’s website to ask her personal questions about their dogs to handle any unique situations that may arise.
In closing, Dog Training in 3 Easy Steps gives you an excellent inexpensive digital companion reference for positive obedience training. But if you have a puppy, or if you have specific behavior problems you would like to work on or would like the unique opportunity to ask the author a personal question about your dog, then it’s worth the few extra dollars to purchase the original book that’s available digitally as well or on paperback. Still can’t decide? Well you can’t beat $2, so buy both and while your e-book is loading, go read all the incredible reviews of its companion, Imagine Life With A Well-Behaved Dog, which happens to be one of the best reviewed positive dog training books available.
