OK. You're dog doesn't live to please you. There, we've said it. Contrary to what you've always heard, not all dogs want to earn their owner's approval. Sometimes they seem as if they could not care less. But this is no secret to you -- you know your dog's not Lassie.With this book you will come to understand and appreciate that for hundreds of years dogs were bred for qualities like independence, dominance and determination. While these traits make dogs excellent hunters, trackers and fighters, they can make day-to-day living with your pet a real challenge. Betty Fisher and Suzanne Delzio will teach you how to employ or overcome the traits that make your dog difficult to train. They will show how to use body language, food, voice, training structure and style to convince your stubborn dog to do what you ask. Without force, you can turn your difficult dog into a perfect pet, or even a successful show dog.

In this well-written, easy-to-follow dog training manual, authors Fisher and Delzio provide gentle, humorous advice for training "hard to train dogs." They outline specific training disorders and motivational techniques that will work with many breeds of dogs, and they advise common sense, patience, and diligence, especially when working with animals that were originally bred to display qualities of independence and dominance. Readers will appreciate the encouraging, simple instructions and examples, the humorous anecdotes, and the easy recipes for baking training treats. The book will appeal to dog owners frustrated by previous training attempts, and even those interested in training for show purposes. Kathleen Hughes
