"Training the Best Dog Ever", originally published in hardcover as "The Love That Dog Training Program", is a book based on love and kindness. It features a program of positive reinforcement and no-fail techniques that author Dawn Sylvia- Stasiewicz used to train the White House dog, Bo Obama, and each of Senator Ted Kennedy's dogs, among countless others. "Training the Best Dog Ever" relies on trust and treats, not choke collars; on bonding, not lead-yanking or reprimanding. The five-week training program takes only 10 to 20 minutes of practice a day and works both for puppies and for adult dogs that need to be trained out of bad habits. Illustrated with step-by-step photographs, the book covers hand-feeding; crate and potty training; and basic cues - sit, stay, come here - as well as more complex goals, such as bite inhibition and water safety. It shows how to avoid or correct typical behaviour problems, including jumping, barking, and lead-pulling. Plus: how to make your dog comfortable in the world - a dog that knows how to behave in a vet's office, is at ease around strangers, and more. In other words, the best dog ever.
