Synopsis: Picture this: You finally take the plunge and decide to adopt a dog. But you have no idea how to train it or make it a member of your family. As the weeks progress, the dog becomes increasingly difficult and eventually runs you out of your own bed. Now, the dog sleeps next to your partner and growls every time you approach your significant other. It may sound hard to believe, but that?s what happened to one couple that went to Matthew Duffy, a longtime dog trainer, for help. And just as they took control of their dog and their lives, you can, too! In this book, you?ll learn: How to transform a rambunctious dog into a composed family member The basic training approach needed to achieve your goals The role of distraction management How to understand how your dog thinks How to adapt to your dog?s likes and dislikes And much more! If you are an average dog owner looking for answers, then it?s time to take Ten Natural Steps for Training the Family Dog.

About the Author: Matthew Duffy was born and raised in southern Indiana, the beautiful hilly country overlooking the mighty Ohio River. His natural rapport with animals became apparent at the young age of thirteen when Matt worked as a mounted trail guide for a local riding stable. After years of working with horses, Matt turned his full attention to dogs. He completed a comprehensive professional dog trainers course in 1980 and soon became the head trainer at a prominent kennel in Louisville, Kentucky. In 1983, Matt entered into a partnership with a dog training center in Indiana and several years later established his own training facility, Advanced Training Kennel, Inc. During Matt?s very active career, he has: ? titled dogs to various levels of working degrees, while a member of the United Schutzhund Clubs of America; ? completed courses at Koehler Method of Dog Training Clinic, the International Police Dogs (scent detection) seminar, the All Breed K-9 Academy (patrol dog) seminar, and the Tom Brown Tracking School; ? studied psychology at Indiana University Southeast and was inducted into the National Honor Society in Psychology in 1983; ? graduated from Floyd County Police Academy and served as a K-9 officer; ? been an active member of the North American Police Work Dog Association and the Indiana Search and Rescue Work Dog Association. Currently, Matt owns and operates Duffy?s Dog Training Center LLC, where he oversees the instruction of several hundred dogs and their owners annually. A master of his trade, Matthew Duffy has trained literally thousands of dogs over the past two and a half decades for every imaginable purpose: family obedience, handicap assistance, search and rescue, even termite detection. Any working day of the week, you?ll find Matt with a leash in his hand, ever continuing to sharpen his expertise.
