Our best-selling dog book—for over 11 years—is now fully revised and updated! All of the original edition's positive methods are revisited to create a harmonious relationship based on love and trust. Acquiring a new puppy is always an exciting experience, but training the little rascal can be exasperating, time-consuming, and not always successful. Gwen Bailey, an expert trainer, comes to the rescue with this totally updated reference. This revised edition contains a greater emphasis on common behavioral problems—keeping control without using intimidation or punishment, plus much more information on how to set boundaries and enforce behavior standards without being aggressive.
