In this new, updated edition, Bauman presents the most current knowledge on canine learning patterns. Believing that dogs learn by trial and error, Bauman provides a novel approach that encourages dogs to learn by removing corrections for incorrect responses. As a result, dogs do not fear failure and are taught to exercise options in a quest for the desired behavior.
Bauman shows you how to become a " thinking handler" who can train the " thinking dog." Her remarkable ability to view training from the dog s perspective translates into an invaluable tool for building effective communication between you and your dog.
The instruction in this authoritative guide is behind Gaines " Superdogs, " numerous obedience trial champions, and a host of other canine successes. If you want your dog to be happy, confident stimulated, and secure in the obedience ring, Beyond Basic Dog Training is the book of choice.
