Step by Step Activities to Engage, Challenge & Bond with Your Dog - Kyra Sundance
Have fun with your pooch. 101 Dog Tricks is the largest trick book on the market presenting full-colour photos of each trick and its training steps. The step-by-step approach, difficulty rating, and prerequisites, allow readers to start training immediately.
Tips and trouble-shooting boxes cover common problems, while "build-on" ideas suggest more complicated tricks which build on each new skill. No special tools (such as clickers) or knowledge of specific training methods are required.
Trick training is a great way to bond with your dog and help him integrate into your family. It keeps him mentally and physically challenged and helps to establish paths of communication between you. Many tricks build skills needed for common dog sports, dog dancing, and dog therapy work.
Dog Tricks and Training - A Step-By-Step Interactive Curriculum to Engage, Challenge and Bond with Your Dog (Workbook & DVD) - Kyra Sundance
The Dog Tricks Workbook is a follow-up guide to Kyra's best-selling 101 Dog Tricks. This new book integrates 30 foundational tricks with a curriculum designed for readers to track and gauge their dog’s progress.
With 150 colour photos & illustrations, the workbook explores integral behaviour and training concepts, which enhance not only the dog's performance, but also the overall relationship between dog & owner.
The deck of 30 trick cards illustrates the step-by-step the tricks themselves, and instructions are excellent teaching tools for the working, training & bonding sessions outlined in the workbook.
