      One, two, three or many more

      Managing more than dog with positive reinforcement

      by Anne Rosengrün

      Highlight Two ore even more dogs are more fun than one – for this to be true, a structured training, good organization and the setting of rules are paramount. As new research has pointed out, the concept of “pack leadership” and “dominance” is much less important than we thought – we simply have to show our dogs how we want them to behave and adapt our own behavior accordingly. This is not only possible, but even very effective with modern, reward-based and force-free training methods. This well-structured manual guides you through the different stages of training with loads of practical advice and experience. Key Selling Points Many households with more than one dog Reward-based training methods Practical advice that really works Audience Dog owners, dog trainers, dog walkers

Suitable for canines and people of all ages and levels of fitness, these exercises will help improve your tone, whatever your starting point. The demonstration videos show exactly how each exercise should be done. You can put the ebook on your iPad and take it to your exercise area!
