Two new books in this series 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 behaviour. There are many instructive, full-colour photos in each book. These cheerful canines have been trained as hunters since the dawn of history, but they also make affectionate house pets. Here's everything the neophyte owner needs to know about training.
