9781515397052: Dog Training: From Average Dog to Awesome Dog: Training for Dogs and Puppies

This book, written by a dog trainer and behaviourist who runs her own dog school in South Africa is a practical guide to training your dog or puppy. The training she describes is easy, straightforward and strictly rewards-based training. It can be used for older dogs as well as puppies and even provides the steps to house-training for puppies and older rescue dogs. The book is above all, practical and provides basic background to training theory that ensures you know the basics without getting bogged down by the research. A four-week training program is provided and describes exactly how to teach the basics. Each week is carefully explained and the exercises build up from the previous week until you are training more and more complex behaviour. You begin with the attention and sit, and move on through the weeks to teach down and stay. The tools that are learned during the four-week training course can then be used to train any behaviours or tricks that you might want to teach your dog. As part of the book, and separate from the training session, are ways I which to teach your dog everything from how to walk loosely on a lead to the basics of house training. Using the guides for general good behaviour as well as the four-week training program will get your dog trained in no time. The practical solutions and hints also ensure that you build up a great relationship with your dog. The book also provides solutions to a variety of common problems that dog owners have with their dogs including stealing socks, not coming when called and stealing food from counter tops. This book will help you to teach your dog the basic obedience commands as well as ensure that you are capable of sorting out any issues that may arise. It also makes sure that you finish the course sufficiently accomplished in training to start training your dog more and more complicated tricks.

About the Author:

Sally Kilpatrick lives on the outskirts of Cape Town in South Africa. She is a qualified dog trainer and behaviourist who runs her own dog school for the last 3 years. She studied dog training through a course in the United Kingdom through COAPE. The course allowed her to do what she loves, and that is to learn as much as she could about dog training! She has also trained many of her own dogs since.
