Dr. Dunbar's Good Little Dog Book

by Dr. Ian Dunbar

This little book is intended primarily as a brief but comprehensive guide to puppy training. Consequently, it contains hints for socialisation, temperament training and behaviour modification, as well as tips for teaching basic manners. Dr Dunbar's lure/reward techniques are certainly not limited to puppies. On the contrary, they have become the method of choice for instructing good-natured, but otherwise uneducated adult dogs.

Our best friend - the domestic dog - is a social animal. It would be unfair and antisocial not to train it. How else could we communicate? Luckily, dogs can easily learn our language ... if we teach them! Basically, training comprises teaching dogs ESL - English as a Second Language - so that our dogs will understand human words for doggy behaviour and actions.

Over a hundred years ago, similar reward-based methods were the accepted practice for training all dogs and puppies. Unfortunately, in the twentieth century the Trainers from the Dark Side inflicted a harsher regime of laborious, on-leash, push-pull, narrow-brained methods on unsuspecting owners and their dogs. Sadly domination was the focus and the poor defenceless dog was viewed as an adversary in the training arena.

Force is unnecessary and almost always counterproductive. Why treat your best friend like your worst enemy? Welcome back to the "so old that it's new again" natural, common-sense, enjoyable way to train your dog - off-leash, lure/reward, fun and games dog-friendly dog training at its best.

Paperback with full colour photographs.
