In this groundbreaking guide, elite dog trainer Kyra Sundance reveals the path to helping your dog be a reliable partner and true member of your family. Kyra -- a world-acclaimed Stunt Dog Team performer, nationally ranked dog sports competitor, and movie dog trainer -- holds the human-dog bond at the heart of her training method. She cares for her dogs with tenderness, trains them thoroughly, and inspires them to excel.
If you're battling the same problems with your dog over and over, then the training method you're using isn't working. Instead of more training, what's needed is better training. Kyra's "whole-dog" approach looks beyond sterile training methods that manipulate through reward and punishment and instead advocates humane behavior modification techniques to establish expectations without compromising love. Her principles -- such as "One Command, One Consequence," "Focus on the Solution, Not the Problem" and "Praise, Touch, Treat -- in That Order" -- empower readers with a clear strategy and the tools to enact real change.
Kyra's method does not suppress natural behaviors and teach subservience. Instead, it fosters confident, happy dogs who are motivated to do the right thing rather than fearful of making a mistake. The Dog Rules shows us us how to develop joyful relationships with dogs who balance enthusiasm and self-control.
