This new and expanded edition of Dog Training for Kids gives youngsters the skills they need to make better citizens of their canine companions, while strengthening that all-important human/animal bond. This "home study course" is based on the ability of the child to teach a dog basic obedience as well as some captivating tricks, without having to depend on parental help or expensive equipment. There are beautifully detailed and humorously illustrated instructions on Heeling, Sit Stay, Stand Stay, Down Stay and Come When Called. Counseling is given on seven common but persistent problems; Jumping Up On People, Chewing, Biting, Excessive Barking, Stealing Food and Problem Housebreaking. On the recreational side, there are descriptions of some wonderful tricks which all youngsters can teach their dogs. For those who feel that a future career in dogs would be satisfying and rewarding, Ms. Benjamin presents an overview of eight occupations to jog the reader's interest.

Carol Lea Benjamin, a professional dog trainer, is the author of numerous books and magazine articles on dogs and other subjects for both adults and children. Highly acclaimed for her work, in 1985 she received both the Dog Writers' Association of America award as Writer of the Year and the Fido Award as Dogdom's Writer of the Year. Ms. Benjamin's clear directions are demonstrated by some of her own pupils and their pets. With this book, you too can share their experiences.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-- A thorough, knowledgable and interesting book for dog lovers. Benjamin stresses throughout that one's goal is to have a dog to be proud of; who is safe and fun; and who knows that you and other humans are top dog. The concepts are taught simply on one or two pages with lists and explanations where needed. Cartoon drawings illustrate concepts humorously while the photographs show them in real-life situations. Although this book could be used by a child to train a dog, Benjamin suggests family and friends' involvement also. But best of all, Benjamin tells why it is so important to train a dog; why certain things need to be learned; and why dog owners must train with the gentlest method that works. This will be invaluable to young (or old) owners of new dogs. --Carole B. Kirkpatrick, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, Wash.
