Newest in Barron's Mini Encyclopedia series for pet owners, this book offers expert advice to new and prospective dog owners who have little or no training experience. The author emphasizes that an understanding of the fundamentals of canine psychology is the key to training dogs to obey commands and maintain good behavior. Annotated sequences of color photos combine with clear, informative text to teach basic obedience lessons: heel, sit, stand, down, stay, and recall. Readers will also find insights on why some dogs exhibit problem behavior--aggression, persistent barking, constant begging for attention, and other disagreeable habits--together with corrective tips. Approximately 500 color photos and diagrams.
