Even the most docile among young dogs needs some training, and problem puppies need even more of it. The new, updated edition of this popular manual discusses the do's and don'ts of canine training, emphasizing methods that keep both dog and master happy members of a single household. Readers are coached on achieving humane but effective housebreaking, teaching a puppy to come when called, training the dog to walk on a leash, and to avoid fighting with other dogs. The author also instructs owners on teaching a puppy to accept bathing and grooming routines, behave when traveling in a car, and adhere to regular feeding habits. Prospective dog owners will also find valuable advice on prudent selection of a new puppy, with focus on acquiring a breed that best fits individual human personality types and family routines. The author's general approach to puppy training emphasizes teaching a dog good habits and breaking the bad ones without breaking the puppy's spirit.
