From the back cover:
“Dogs are amazing creatures who have adapted to the crazy-confusing world of people remarkably well – most of the time. Learn how your dog thinks and you will be able to work with his good nature to build a bond of trust and love between the two of you. Learn why your dog acts like a dog and you can redirect that doggie instinct and natural canine response towards acceptable-to-humans behavior.
It’s simple. No yelling needed – just manage his behavior to prevent him from doing the wrong things. When your dog is doing the right thing, reward him for it. No physical punishment or coercion. Would you ‘come when called’ if you knew that bad things would happen when you got there? Everything your dog does makes sense – to him. It’s your challenge to figure out how to make the behaviors you want more rewarding than the behavior you don’t want. And you and your dog will both have fun while you’re at it!
Positive Perspectives will show you:
- How management works in the world of dogs.
- One thing that prevents 75% of all problem behavior before it happens.
- Which leashes and collars create behavior problems and which ones don’t.
- Why clicker training is so popular and effective.
- One toy no doggie household should be without.”
