Experienced and novice trainers alike will benefit from Sue's decades of experience in competitive canine sports and service dog training. Sue is a master at communicating with dogs and people in ways both can understand. Her Training Levels manual will help you capture and keep your dog's willing participation in the training process. This two-volume manual was written for trainers who want a coherent, start-to-finish training plan. It's not specifically aimed at obedience competition, or agility, or tracking, or any other sport or job. It's aimed at producing a thinking dog that is a willing partner, eager to learn, happy to work, able to go into new situations and perform reliably, comfortable in public, a good traveller, and capable of giving full attention to the handler.
- What behaviors does a "professional" dog know that an "amateur" dog doesn't?
- What training do excellent pets, excellent sport dogs, and excellent working dogs have in common?
- What foundation behaviors will give a trained dog the enthusiasm and ability to earn a beginning title in any sport with a month of extra practice?
- How do you break these behaviors down into easily-trained pieces?
This amazing two-volume set of working manuals clearly illustrates and explains the answers to these questions and will guide you in your search for better understanding of and a better bond with your canine companions. Sue breaks down the finished behaviors into small, achievable steps for you to work through, level by level.
