This behavioural approach to training is based on praise and reward and is suited to dogs of all sizes, breeds, ages, and temperaments. Starting with how your dog thinks, its personality and social development, the book covers everything from basic puppy training to advanced training.
The RSPCA Complete Dog Training Manual is a completely new concept in dog training books concentrating on training with kindness with food rewards and verbal praise as the basis of control. Dr. Bruce Fogle the leading expert on canine behaviour presents a comprehensive RSPCA-approved training programme. In a series of straightforward lessons he describes the basics of puppy control such as early crate and lead training and establishing a routine and then moves on to more advanced techniques for dogs of all ages such as restraint recall retrieval bark control and heelwork. The RSPCA Complete Dog Training Manual is unique in its systematic visual approach. Training techniques are explained step-by-step and each stage is clearly illustrated by colour photographs. Verbal commands and position changes are annotated on the pictures themselves leaving you in no doubt as to what to do. Many adult dogs display unacceptable behaviour. Dr. Bruce Fogle examines dozens of problems from chasing cars and joggers to food guarding and excessive nervousness. He explains their causes and shows you how each one can be overcome.
