This is my absolute favourite for the beginners. In “The Power of Positive Dog Training” the author and dog trainer Pat Miller offers a six-weeks step-by-step positive reinforcement dog training program focused on building a healthy relationship with your dog. You’ll learn about your dog’s body language, how to start clicker training, or how to use a diary to track progress.
2. “Reaching the Animal Mind“.
Karen Pryor is the founder of clicker training. In “Reaching the Animal Mind“ she takes us on a journey into the canine brain and explains why clicker training works and the science behind it.
Expert on canine body language, Norwegian dog trainer and behaviourist Turin Rugaas will help you to recognise, and understand dog body language. Reading “On Talking Terms with Dogs: Calming Signals“ you will learn signals dogs use to avoid conflict, invite play, and communicate a wide range of information to other dogs and people.
4 “Control unleashed“
Leslie McDevitt’s versatile “Control unleashed“ program is designed to help “dogs with issues” learn how to relax, focus, and work off-leash reliably in either stimulating or stressful situations. If you have a challenging dog this is a must read!
“Total recall“ is yet another must have, especially if you want to teach your dog one of the most important behaviours in your dog’s life – recall. Pippa Mattinson gives you a solution to your recall problems in easy to follow, simple steps.
