Training the Best Dog Ever: A 5-Week Program Using the Power of Positive Reinforcement

Training the Best Dog Ever: A 5-Week Program Using the Power of Positive Reinforcement

Training the Best Dog Ever, originally published in hardcover as The Love That Dog Training Program, is a book based on love and kindness. It features a program of positive reinforcement and no-fail techniques that author Dawn Sylvia-Stasiewicz used to train the White House dog, Bo Obama, and each of Senator Ted Kennedy’s dogs, among countless others.

Training the Best Dog Ever relies on trust and treats, not choke collars; on bonding, not leash-yanking or reprimanding. The five-week training program takes only 10 to 20 minutes of practice a day and works both for puppies and for adult dogs that need to be trained out of bad habits. Illustrated with step-by-step photographs, the book covers hand-feeding; crate and potty training; and basic cues—sit, stay, come here—as well as more complex goals, such as bite inhibition and water safety. It shows how to avoid or correct typical behavior problems, including jumping, barking, and leash-pulling. Plus: how to make your dog comfortable in the world—a dog that knows how to behave in a vet’s office, is at ease around strangers, and more. In other words, the best dog ever.

    Very good read! Bought this and Cesar's book. This one wins hands down! I referred to it every day while training our dalmatian and lab. Cesar's was more stories, this one told me what to work on and how to do it!

    Amazing book! A really easy read and I love that she also explains why doing certain things are important along with giving an example story. We followed this book religiously from the day we got our pup and he turned out to be the best trained dog I've ever had. I highly recommend!

    This review is from: Training the Best Dog Ever: A 5-Week Program Using the Power of Positive Reinforcement (Kindle Edition)
    I've always believed in positive reinforcement training for all my dogs and although I'd read up on the subject a lot and attended many training classes, I still found this book very helpful. It's wonderfully practical. My dog is already 18 months old and we were still able to use these techniques even though they are recommended for puppies. Really, f your passionate about your dog and committed to training, this is worth your while!
