The Trick Is in the Training
25 Fun Tricks to Teach your DogBook - 1998
Trained behavior patterns, popularly known as "tricks"are fun for canines and their masters. This book shows dog owners how to train an animal to perform both simple and more complicated tricks. The authors begin with four basic commands--sit, down, stand, and stay--that all dogs should know and obey. From there they progress to behaviors such as wave, sit up, bow, jump through a hoop, and weave through legs. Instructions for each of the book's 25 tricks are presented with tips to help owners work through problems, and suggestions for putting the animal's training to effective use--just for fun, in competitive shows, for roles in films, and many other situations. The dog-and-master team that progresses all the way through this volume's advanced exercises will be capable of public performance! Not every dog owner will want to go that far, but all dog owners can profit from the know-how that they'll find in these pages. 150 instructive how-to color photos, and a wealth of practical tips will make training easier for both master and pet.
