Synopsis: This is the first book in the award winning "Dog Sports Skills" series. This first book will focus on developing a competition dog sports foundation based in engagement and relationship. It doesn't matter what genetic package or temperament your dog is born with; you can bring out the best in your dog! To train your dog, you must develop a relationship that encourages a willing and happy attitude with natural focus while eliminating undue stress in both training and competition. If your goal is to create a world-class, enthusiastic performance dog, then this book is for you! We can help you refine your engagement and relationship skills to a higher level. If you are an instructor who is struggling with your novice students or less focused dogs, then this book is for you! You will find advice on how to work with a range of canine temperaments. If you have a dog who works well at home but you can't seem to maintain that connection in public, then this book is for you, too! You will learn the basics of recognizing stress, paying attention to your dog, and alleviating or minimizing problems so that you can focus on work rather than worry. Finally, if you simply want to take the dog you have, your personal pet, and enjoy your training at a more fulfilling level, then this book is for you as well. By understanding and applying excellent engagement and relationship building techniques, both you and your canine companion will find more enjoyment in the training process, even if you choose never to step foot inside a competition ring. The chapters will cover relationship (what it is and how to get it), stress (recognizing it and techniques for lessening it's impact), developing focus, explaining and evaluating positive methods for getting behaviors, and the use of trick training to develop a handler's training skills and a dog's mental and physical flexibility.

About the Author: Denise Fenzi: Born into a "dog family," Denise Fenzi started training and competing in dog sports over 35 years ago! Over that period of time, she found kinder and gentler ways to approach dog training, and now she is well known for her effective and humane techniques for gaining cooperation from all types of dogs. Denise's first series of books, "Dog Sports Skills," co-written with Deb Jones, has been wildly successful! All three books have won the Maxwell award for Best Behavior and Training book - one award each year! Her latest books, Beyond The Backyard, Train Your Dog to Listen Anytime, Anywhere! and Blogger Dog, Brito! are already receiving acclaim from those within and outside the dog community. Denise owns and operates Fenzi Dog Sports Academy, a large and well regarded online dog training school. You can learn more about the academy here: www.fenzidogsportsacademy.com Deborah Jones: Deb Jones, Ph.D. is a psychologist who specializes in learning theory and social behavior. She has taught a variety of psychology courses at Kent State University over the past 15 years. Deb has been training dogs for performance events for the past 20 year and was an early innovator in the use of clicker training techniques in dog training. She has owned and worked with a variety of breeds and has earned top level titles in agility (MACH), rally (RAE), and obedience (UD) competitions. Her focus is on developing training methods that are enjoyable and effective for both the dog and the trainer. Her mission is to help others develop strong positive relationships with their dogs. Her favorite saying is “it’s all tricks!”
