9781592535712: 51 Puppy Tricks: Step-by-Step Activities to Engage, Challenge, and Bond with Your Puppy

51 Puppy Tricks gives puppy owners the tools they need to teach behaviors and tricks to their puppy through step-by-step instructions and photographs. Most other puppy training books focus on curbing bad behavior. Some have training, but only the most basic tricks. Kyra’s curriculum differs from that of 101 Dog Tricks in that the instructions are geared for the less mature dog. Young puppies are not yet well-tuned to humans, and respond better to a clicker than to a voice. Also, young puppies have so few skills that everyone benefits from a technique called “shaping” which breaks a behavior into minute steps for easier learning. And, of course, puppies receive extra gentle care when we teach, focused more on instilling a love of learning and a communication pathway rather than accomplishing the goal behavior.

About the Author:

Kyra Sundance is a world-acclaimed stunt dog show performer, celebrity dog trainer, and internationally best-selling author. An award winning author, Kyra's numerous dog-training books include the international best-selling 101 Dog Tricks, which sold over a half-million copies in 18 languages, and is one of the top dog training books of all time.

Kyra's acrobatic stunt dog team performs worldwide and starred in shows for the king of Morocco at the royal palace in Marrakech, in Disney's Underdog stage show in Hollywood, and in circuses and professional sports halftime shows. They performed on The Tonight Show, Ellen, Animal Planet, and had their own television series called Showdog Moms & Dads.

Kyra is nationally ranked in competitive dog sports and is a set trainer for movie dogs. As a lecturer on positive training methods, her enthusiasm inspires audiences to develop fun and rewarding relationships with their own dogs. Her methods foster confident, happy dogs who are motivated to do the right thing rather than ones fearful of making a mistake. She shows us how to develop joyful relationships with dogs who balance enthusiasm with self-control.
