To train your dog effectively, you must establish more than authority and obedience. You must train the dog to want to please you. You must establish rapport. It is upon this basis that the excellent training regimen given in ""Dog Logic: Companion Obedience"" is developed. Understanding your dog's natural behavior and responses to the world he lives in is the key to achieving the training results you want. That key is provided in this book and will result for you in a responsive, obedient dog that accepts your leadership and happily lives by your rules. This is mutual respect that works! The exercises in ""Dog Logic"" are for the companion dog and, if you like, the obedience trial dog. They guide you gradually and expertly through the whole series of training objectives, and your ultimate reward is a dog you can always be proud of. Week by week and level by level, you will see your dog gaining poise, polish and the admiration of all who meet him. You and your dog will become a living example of what it means to be a smoothly functioning dog/human partnership. These training methods are tested, proven and reliable and can make a world of important difference for you and your dog. A Howell Dog Book of Distinction
