51 Puppy Tricks

51 Puppy Tricks gives puppy owners the tools they need to teach behaviors and tricks to their puppy through step-by-step instructions and photographs. Most other puppy training books focus on curbing bad behavior. Some have training, but only the most basic tricks. Kyra’s curriculum differs from that of 101 Dog Tricks in that the instructions are geared for the less mature dog. Young puppies are not yet well-tuned to humans, and respond better to a clicker than to a voice. Also, young puppies have so few skills that everyone benefits from a technique called “shaping” which breaks a behavior into minute steps for easier learning. And, of course, puppies receive extra gentle care when we teach, focused more on instilling a love of learning and a communication pathway rather than accomplishing the goal behavior.

Nevertheless, we already know you're a dog person, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this in the first place. (Sorry cat folks, but we're not talking to you right now.) OK, now that we've addressed the obvious...why bother getting a dog? Well, besides the fact that they're so cute and cuddly and who in their right mind could resist that adorable face when your puppy wants to snuggle in your arms, they're the most loyal companions anybody can ask for, always there by your side no matter what without judging you. * Need some cheering up when you're feeling down? Your dog can do that. Need to get out of the house more and exercise? Your dog will force you off your couch to stay in shape. They are indeed man's best friend. Sometimes dogs are just better than people, and that's why we love them so much! But do you know what would make you love your dog even more? It's having a well-trained obedient dog that will listen to your ever command and even be able to do fancy tricks impressing those around, as a result of you training your dog. Why should you train your dog YOURSELF, when you can get somebody else to do it? Because it's your dog! If you let somebody else train your dog, it will associate a stronger bond with the other person that you could have built, which far outweighs any new dog tricks.
