Training Your Dog Series - All books in this series
Because the typical Chihuahua is fi ercely loyal to its master, this little dog doesn’t always get along well with strangers or children. Prospective owners of Chihuahuas are generally advised to include socialization methods in the dog’s training when it is very young. 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.
