TOP MARKS IN THIS READER'S OPINION!!
"In my humble opinion this is the absolute best dog training manual that has ever been written ! There is no force, no clickers, no punishments just plain common sense.
I first put this into practice nearly 20 years ago when the book first was published, I trained 3 GSD's and one Labrador over the space of many years with this method, and ended up with 4 dogs that were a joy to work and live with" ...... " A small example of this book...a barking dog ? Teach it to bark on command and you can teach it to stop...on command ! This works!
Finally in my humble opinion if you have this book, you need no other."

HOW TO BE A CONCEPT TRAINER
HOW TO BE A CONCEPT TRAINER: SHAPING YOUR DOG'S PERSONALITY THROUGH GAMES
Does your dog get so excited that he struggles to focus and process what you want him to do?
Does he get frustrated when you are training a new exercise?
Does he go into a new environment fearing that something scary may happen?
These three differing scenarios, which can apply equally to performance dogs and companion dogs, are real barriers to learning, and can also tarnish your relationship with your dog.
But it doesnt have to be this way. In his new book, How to be a Concept Trainer, vet and behaviourist Tom Mitchell reveals his novel approach to training and its all about playing games!
Instead of tackling problems head-on, Tom has developed specific games which work on underlying emotional issues, and encourage dogs to make the right decisions.
Mitchell equips us with the tools to manipulate our dogs mindset, turn negative traits into positive ones and finally reach their full potential!

IRREPRESSIBLE TOY DOG
Author - Arden - Publisher - Howell
Toy dogs, while small, have some big differences when it comes to the way they perceive the world and their health concerns and needs. Because everything is gigantic to them, they respond differently to training and to everyday environmental stresses. This doesnt mean they need to be coddled, but they do need to be understood. Darlene spent more than a year researching the material in this book. The manscript has been reviewed by top veterinarians and behaviorists, many of whom have heartily endorsed it on the back cover. Her extensive health care section marks the first time a book has looked exclusively at the special needs of small dogs. Not just for Toy breeds, this book is an invaluable reference for anyone with a dog under 20 pounds.

LINE TRAINING FOR DOGS
Author - Monika Guttman - Publisher - Cadmos
Unless they're on a lead, many dogs refuse to come back to their owners, and simply do as they please. Dogs like these commonly spend their lives on leads that are much too short, so are unable to enjoy the privilege of running free in meadows and fields, because they haven't learned to take notice of their owners and come back on call or whistle.
The advice that's often given to anyone who owns a dog like this is to give line training a try, but not many people know how it's done. This is the first book published on this subject and provides step-by-step guidance on how to perform successful line training with your dog.

THE HUMAN HALF OF DOG TRAINING
Author - Rise VanFleet - Publisher - Dogwise
What is challenging for so many trainers is that their success in working with dogs ultimately depends on the cooperation, understanding and follow-through of the people who bring their dogs to them to be trained. Failure to work with people often leads to failure with the dogs. In The Human Half of Dog Training, author Risë VanFleet draws upon her years of experience of working with people as a child and family psychologist to teach dog trainers how to take a collaborative approach with clients to help insure the best possible outcomes for their dogs.
Dogs? No Problem! People? Yikes!!
Most dog trainers have a strong desire to help dogs learn appropriate behaviors and solve the kinds of problems that most dogs experience or create. It is why they get into the business in the first place and it is what they are trained to do. What is challenging for so many trainers is that their success in working with dogs ultimately depends on the cooperation, understanding and follow-through of the people who bring their dogs to them to be trained. Failure to work with people often leads to failure with the dogs. In The Human Half of Dog Training, author Risë VanFleet draws upon her years of experience of working with people as a child and family psychologist to teach dog trainers how take a collaborative approach with clients to help insure the best possible outcomes for their dogs.
