From Average Dog to Awesome Dog! A practical four-week training guide for dogs & puppies by Sally Kilpatrick
I received a free kindle copy of From Average Dog to Awesome Dog! A practical four-week training guide for dogs & puppies by Sally Kilpatrick in an Amazon promotion in exchange for a fair review.
I gave the book four stars. It has a lot of positive steps to take in training your dog.
Reward the behaviors you want & ignore the ones you don't like. Easier said than done with a puppy that nips & runs.
Positive reinforcement is best. Avoid inconsistency. Spend time with your dog. Exercise & play both help you bond.
Dogs must be corrected WHILE the dog is engaging in the undesirable behavior. It is ineffective done after it has happened.
Confidence & consistency are both necessary in interacting with your dog. Keep positive & motivating.
Don't work with you animal when you're in a bad mood. They sense it.
A crate can provide comfort, security & safety for a dog. Don't use it as punishment.
