Training Your Dog Series - All books in this series
Noted for affectionate loyalty to their masters and their household, typical Boxers respond most readily to positive reinforcement techniques, such as clicker training. Inappropriate obedience training methods can often produce a stubborn and unwilling learner. This book offers specific advice for fostering a happy and obedient pet. Training Your Dog books teach ordinary non-expert dog owners how to train their own pets. Virtually every aspect of training is covered, with special focus on the distinctive traits of individual breeds. Dog owners are instructed on humane but effective methods of housebreaking and paper training, obedience training, teaching the dog to respond to verbal commands and hand signals, walking on a leash, and more. Also covered are methods of correcting bad habits such as begging, unwanted barking, and showing hostile behavior. Appealing color photos and illustrations on most pages include many that demonstrate training methods.
