|About the Book|
Training starts from the moment you bring your pet into your home. When you understand WHY your dog thinks the way he does, training should and can be fun for you and the entire family as well as for your pet. Although they are all unique with their own individual personalities, some dogs are more dominate and some are more submissive. However, they are all fundamentally the same and need to be taught what you want and expect from them, but in a manner they can instinctively understand. This book is the result of more than 20 years of experience with dog behaviorism and training in homes, and with what people seemed to need the most. Its an easy-to-read quick reference book that addresses common behaviors that dogs exhibit and what to do about them. Sheri Venza is a Dog Trainer/Behaviorist who has been going to peoples homes, the dogs territory for over 20 years. Her goal is to make the training process fun for both owner and pet without the use of food, toys, or other unnecessary items. She says there is no such thing as a bad dog. Behavioral issues, regardless of what they are, usually originate or become worse in the dogs home. Dogs can exhibit the same behaviors but for very different reasons. The cause of a particular behavior needs to be determined in order for the appropriate behavioral modification program to be implemented. Sheri says you must treat your dog like the pack animal he is, to have him behave like the dog you want, so you can then treat him like the person you wish he was!
