9781608680184: Training Your Dog the Humane Way: Simple Teaching Tips for Resolving Problem Behaviors and Raising a Happy Dog

Dog owners facing tough behavior problems and unique canine personalities need tips and techniques to make their lives better. And many are realizing that traditional training through punishment is unpleasant and potentially damaging to the dog — and simply doesn’t work long-term.

With Training Your Dog the Humane Way, animal behaviorist and dog trainer Alana Stevenson provides dog owners with a simple, accessible guide to the most effective positive dog training techniques available. Alana presents easy-to-follow methods and advice for teaching dogs polite manners and resolving ongoing behavior issues. She provides solutions for such problems as housesoiling, play-biting, separation anxiety, fear of strangers, aggression, lunging while on leash, car sickness, and more. Readers will learn the most effective way to teach their dogs — through kindness and benevolent leadership.

Review:

Training Your Dog the Humane Way is a landmark book. Alana Stevenson blends the latest scientific research on who dogs are and what they want, need, and feel with clear instructions for positive, reward-based training. This easy-to-read book is an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to have a close and enduring relationship with their best friend. I hope it enjoys global acceptance.”
Marc Bekoff, PhD, University of Colorado, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals, Wild Justice, and The Animal Manifesto

For too many years, dogs have been trained with unnecessarily harsh and combative methods. Training Your Dog the Humane Way is straightforward and easy to read, and it will assist caring dog owners in developing appropriate behavior in a compassionate way that will strengthen the bond between them and their dogs.”
Lore I. Haug, DVM, MS, CPDT, diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists

Alana Stevenson has done a fabulous service to dogs and their guardians. She knows how a dog’s mind works, and her clear advice and positive approach make training rewarding for both canine and human.”
Jonathan Balcombe, PhD, author of Pleasurable Kingdom, Second Nature, and The Exultant Ark

Wags and woofs for Training Your Dog the Humane Way, which educates humans to first be aware of their own behavior, as well as canine behavior and communication, before seeking to shape dogs’ behavior. This approach to training enhances the relationship between human and pet and brings out the best in both species.”
Dr. Michael W. Fox, veterinarian, syndicated columnist, and author of The Healing Touch for Dogs

Alana Stevenson’s Training Your Dog the Humane Way is a welcome addition to the chorus of positive dog training. Its beauty lies in Alana’s direct approach. The book is easy to understand and is fueled by Alana’s genuine and obvious love of animals. She emphasizes the importance of educating dogs the right way, the first time,’ which is an invaluable refrain. If more and more people implement her suggestions, more and more dogs, and people, will benefit.”
Paul Owens, author of The Dog Whisperer: A Compassionate, Nonviolent Approach to Dog Training

Training Your Dog the Humane Way is beautifully written and has great content for discerning and naive dog owners.”
William E. Campbell, author of Behavior Problems in Dogs, The New Better Behavior in Dogs, and Dog Behavior Problems: The Counselor’s Handbook
