If you and your dog are fans of Matthew "Uncle Matty" Margolis's PBS series, Woof! It's a Dog's Life, then you'll both love his latest book, Uncle Matty's Ultimate Guide to Dog Training. Margolis--Good Morning America's resident pet expert and founder of the National Institute of Dog Training in Los Angeles--pairs up with author and Dog Writers Association of America president Mordecai Siegal on this highly readable and informative training guide, written to "magnify the enjoyable and useful dog training information viewed in every segment of Uncle Matty's television series." In addition to the basic commands "no," "OK," "sit," "heel," "stay," "down," and "come when called," Margolis discusses the task of housebreaking, determining your dog's temperament--"one of the most important steps to take before training"--and bonding with your dog, which creates "a relationship with him based on the friendship, love, caring, and trust that make living with a dog so incredible." Also offered is helpful advice on behavioral problems--both owner and dog related--as well as a look at standard training tools, including the leash and the collar. Presented with warmth, intelligence, and Margolis's trademark wit, this truly unique guide puts the "fun" in training fundamentals! --Stefanie HargreavesFrom the Inside Flap:
