Product description

From the Back Cover

Updated with the latest tools and techniques—including the clicker method

Renowned dog trainer Pat Miller gives you the positive training tools you need to ensure that you and your dog share a lifetime of fun, companionship, and respect. Following her step-by-step, six-week basic training program, you'll learn how to develop a relationship with your dog based on friendship and positive reinforcement, not fear and punishment. Plus, you'll get:

  • Information on the importance of observing, understanding, and reacting appropriately to your dog's body language

  • Instructions on how to phase out the use of a clicker and treats to introduce more advanced training concepts

  • A helpful diary to track progress, suggestions for delicious treats your dog will respond to, and a glossary of training terms

Whether you've never trained a dog or are just switching over to positive training, with Pat's proven method you'll discover that training your four-legged friend is easy, fun, and effective. Now that's The Power of Positive Dog Training.
