Leading with an empty hand
- For greater harmony between dogs and owners – improving the dog-owner bond
- It couldn’t be easier – a guiding hand
- Innovative training concepts for every situation
A trusting relationship between a dog and its owner is the sound basis for successful dog training, and the author shows how you can build up and consolidate just such a relationship. In “hand-touch” work, the dog learns how to follow the empty hand of its owner, regardless of whether it’s on a lead, at heel or running in a slalom fashion around your legs. All you need is your hand and your dog, and nothing else besides. Find out the importance of eye contact training and how you can make your dog concentrate on you, even when there are many distractions around. A wealth of illustrated exercises show you how it’s done.
