Training for Both Ends of the Leash: A Guide to Cooperation Training for You and Your Dog
A breakthrough approach to dog training, tapping the power of cooperation by integrating a dog s natural instinct with an owner s personality.
Kate Perry has seen it all: the secret pee-ers, the delivery-man harassers, the agoraphobics. Every dog presents a unique set of drives, traits, and needs and so does every owner. Delivering the effective approach that has made her a highly sought-after canine consultant, Training for Both Ends of the Leash incorporates the owner s lifestyle and household setup to create a balanced training program and reliable behavior for dogs and their owners.
Training for Both Ends of the Leash helps identify a dog s dominant drives and personality so that owners can develop a personalized training system that targets specific problems. Only positive reinforcement is permitted, and owners are taught how to appropriately accommodate a dog s tendencies, leading to a fun, loving, and respectful atmosphere in which owner and pet can forge a strong bond based on trust. Featuring personal stories from her client files, along with Perry s unique Canine-ality Quiz to determine your dog s temperment and advice with Professor Sophie (Kate s pug, who has helped train more than 3,000 dogs), the book covers every concern, from housebreaking and socialization to street smarts and anxiety.
