Canine “tricks” are showy extensions of a dog’s natural behavior. Training dogs to perform tricks enhance the bond between pet and owner and adds to playtime fun.
This updated book shows dog owners how to train their pets to perform simple and complicated tricks in words and pictures. After reviewing four basic commands–sit, down, stand, and stay–the book instructs on progressing to behaviors such as jump through a hoop, weave through legs, balance a biscuit, and many others. The authors present step-by-step instructions for dozens of fun tricks and offer tips and suggestions to help readers work through problems. Successful training can lead to enhanced pet therapy visits, success in talent competitions, and perhaps even a part in a local stage production. The dog-and-handler team that progresses through all of this book’s behaviors will develop talents that could lead to public performance. But even dog owners who aren’t interesting in progressing to that level can learn much from the ideas and instruction presented in this book. This new edition presents all-new photos plus a full chapter of new tricks–more opportunities than ever for dogs and handlers to have fun together.
“For any dog lover who wants to do more with their canine, “The Trick is in the Training” is a solid resource. Recommended.
