An entire book on dog training. “Practical Dog Training” by S.T. Hammond. Although this book is geared towards the hunting dog, it has an incredible amount of training that is invaluable to every dog owner. It is stressed through training rather than breaking, that is, gaining your dog’s love and trust so that he or she wants to please rather than doing so out of fear. An excellent book, covering gaining your puppy’s love and trust, then on to the basics. The author explains how to get your dog to obey instantly through consistency and reward. He continues with advanced training, tricks, other dogs, other people, etc. A very good book, filled with knowledge, and free with this purchase.
