With details about the history and science behind dog training by the Monks of New Skete, this updated version is a great resource for anyone interested in seriously teaching and understanding their canines.
If you can surmise from the title, this comprehensive book gives you insights on what to do even before you bring a new pup home. A great addition to this resource written by Kyra Sundance and Chalcy is the inclusion of videos and audio clips to help you in this activity.
Dr. Ian Dunbar covers everything you need to know about bringing your puppy home. Learn more about picking the perfect breed for you and your family, socialization, house training among other topics. In this book, you can set up a lifetime of good behavior for your pup.
Sometimes, police investigators think like criminals to catch the latter or stop further illegal acts. In the same way, this book by Jean Donaldson teaches you to get into your dog’s mindset. It will help you use that information to make your pup act in the behavior you want.
Pat Miller’s book teaches dog owners to enforce discipline using positive reinforcement. It then sets a six-week training program that you can go through with your dog. This should help your pup respond to basic commands and some fun tricks.
It’s also important to keep your aura stable for your pets to follow your lead. Just like what Cesar says!
It becomes very obvious, by reading a dog, how stable or unstable his human companion is. Our dogs are our mirrors. #WednesdayWisdom
