The decision to bring a dog into your home can represent enormous and unexpected responsibility and chaos. Many of us find ourselves feeling overwhelmed when the reality of such a large undertaking is exposed and the market for training books and other information is so vast and competitive.
Join Dog Behavior Expert, Joe Ardis Horn, as he uniquely and innovatively approaches canine training from the dog s perspective. Effective techniques are taught in a concise and comprehensive manner, and apply equally to both the new dog owner and to those who are merely seeking to sharpen current behavior skills. Achieving optimum behavior from your dog requires understanding more than a memorized set of verbal commands, baby talk, or an elaborate training plot, which can lead to frustration, discouragement, and can be prohibitive to progress. Joe Ardis will relay in simple, easy to follow terms how understanding the thought patterns and psychological nature of your dog is essential to successful human/canine communication.
