Author: Pamela Dennison
Publisher: Dogwise Publishing

What do science and art have to do with dog training? The science teaches you the nuances of how dogs learn. The art helps you to be more clear and inventive if your dog doesn’t quite understand what you want. You will learn about breaking down behaviors using a positive, proactive approach which is a big part of the modern process of dog training.

Step by step instructions will help make what may seem insurmountable into something much simpler. This book will take you through it all:

• A look at the science behind modern training techniques and why they really work.
• Expert advice on basic training – sit, down, stay, come, door etiquette and loose leash walking.
• Addressing jumping, biting, stealing and other misbehaviors.
• Helping your dog become a Canine Good Citizen.

Life mirrors dog training. The effort you put in now will yield you many rewards, both immediately and for years to come.

What experts are saying about You Can Train Your Dog!:
Pam Dennison has done it again! She has written a fabulous book about training dogs that will benefit both the pet owner and novice or professional instructor. This in-depth volume bears Pam’s signature stamp of breaking tasks into small steps that make learning effective and fun for dog and human alike. When I think of Pam, I think of someone who really “gets” dogs and who stands out in her ability to teach using practical, simple, realistic, and effective dog-friendly methods. This wonderful book is chock full of easy to follow approaches that work with family dogs, working dogs, high-performance dogs, and dogs with problems. It is precisely because of its practicality and comprehensiveness that I plan to use this book in my Animal-Assisted Play Therapy training program. This is an absolute must-read for everyone who trains their own or others’ dogs!
Risë VanFleet, PhD, RPT-S, CDBC Founder, The Playful Pooch Program, Author of the award-winning Play Therapy with Kids & Dogs and The Human Half of Dog Training: Collaborating with Clients to Get Results

Wow! This book has it all. From basics and animal husbandry through to Premack and control games. If we had more well planned books like this in our stores there would be less problem dogs on our streets! Pamela does a great job of deciphering the science behind dog training in this user friendly guide to having a great dog!
Nando Brown, IMDT, CAP2, FSG1, FFITT

I love how Pam makes the science and art of training a dog understandable for all caregivers. By using this book you will not only understand how your dog learns, but teach him step by step many important behaviours; from preparing him for vet visits to teaching him to walking on a loose lead. You can enhance the relationship you have with your dog and the relationship he has with you by reading this excellent book.
