From the Publisher
I hope this book inspires you to not only teach tricks, but to ‘Do More With Your Dog!’
The purpose of this book is to give you real-world tactics for correcting—or simply managing—these frustation-inducing behaviors. You will learn how to establish room boundaries that your dog is not allowed to cross, how to teach your dog to respect the children and other animals in the household, and how to feed multiple dogs in a controlled way. You will learn how to correctly address your dog’s fear or aggression issues by using methods of counterconditioning and positive redirection.
In this book, you will use positive training methods to build a joyful relationship with your dog, where he is a willing partner in the training process. Training builds relationships by deepening communication pathways, trust, and mutual respect. It offers a way to bond with your dog as you strive toward common goals. The trust and cooperative spirit developed through this process will last a lifetime.
Some of the tips included in Dog Training 101: Step-by-Step Instructions for raising a happy well-behaved dog
Crate Training / Bedtime
What to expect: The vast majority of dogs quickly grow to love their crate and seek it out when they wish some alone time (or a reprieve from household chaos or children). Allow your dog this space and do not bother him when he chooses to go in there.
What to expect : The first time getting the ball back will be the hardest, but very soon your dog will figure out that she can’t get the treat out on her own and needs to bring it back to you to release the treat.
Teach Respect for Other Pets
What to expect : Some dog breeds were bred as hunters and will have the instinct to chase or shake the cat. Even these natural instincts can be kept in check, however, with firm and consistent enforcement of house rules. It will be far easier for the animals to control their excitement indoors, rather than outdoors.
Troubleshoot the Most Common Problems
Fear of Being Left Alone
What to expect : Separation anxiety is a difficult condition to remedy. Improvements will be small and slow, but take comfort in knowing that with every small step, it WILL get better.
Going into the Trash Can
What to expect : Dogs are smart! Some figure out how to operate a step can, unhinge a locking lid, or push the can over to release its contents. A heavy-duty, wellmade trash can will decrease stress in your household.Results will vary depending on how sound-shy your dog is. Some dogs (such as gun-dog breeds) may not startle at all from the sound.
Chewing Shoes / Furniture
What to expect : Dogs chew for two reasons: for fun or from anxiety. Young dogs chew for fun and start to outgrow it as they get older. In either case, providing chew toys will go a long way to reducing the problem.
