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

  • Workman Publishing

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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars *Updated* Third time purchasing, because all of our friends are so impressed by our pups good behavior!!, April 5, 2016

    This has been amazing!!! This one was actually purchased for a friend, because they were so impressed with our pups progress they wanted one for their dog as well. After only a few days of training with this collar and our pup is free to roam outside. We don't even have to use it anymore, but she knows to stay in the yard. I love that is has a vibrate and beep feature. We never actually had to shock her, the beep and vibration were enough to teach her the boundaries of our yard. Our friend has began using it as well and has already began to see progress after only a week of use. We are all sold on these trainers. Truly a MUST HAVE for any dog owner!

    **Updated to add- I didn't think to mention this before, but I wasn't a fan of the collar that comes with the pet trainer so we used the collar we already had for our pup and it works great. You just slide the actual trainer off the black collar and it can slide right on to yours. (I just though that might be helpful for someone).

    Quick note-
    I rely greatly on customer reviews when I am looking to purchase an item, and I know others do too, so I try to be as thorough and honest in giving it as possible. I put a lot of thought into my review and appreciate feedback, [...]. Thanks so much for reading and feel free to ask me any questions! :)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Works. 15 mins of work 2 week worth of improvement, April 12, 2016

    I have 2 German Shepards. They are 2 months and 10 days old. They have the hardest heads of any dog I have ever seen. You call them and they just look at you. They are also the smartest 2 dogs I have ever seen. They know their names, can sit, are nearly house broke, but will not come when you call them. I put these collars on them and in 15 mins they have a new out look when I call their names. I did not have to "shock" them!!! I use the beep when I called their names and the vibrate to move them along. I'm amazed at how good they work! Try the shock on your self before you use it on your animal. I'm 6' 2" and 235 lbs and the shock at 100% hits me hard. I have it on 10% for the dogs and the vibrate set to 50%. Works like a champ. Don't let your kids have the remote. Don't use it when your mad. It's a training aid not a punishment tool.

    3.0 out of 5 stars I wish I had read a review like this one when I was purchasing this collar, November 29, 2016
    Verified Purchase(What's this?)
    I have never written an Amazon review before, but I rely on them for ever purchase I make on Amazon (which is a lot). I wish I had read a review like this one when I was purchasing this collar.
    I want to start out by saying that I never though I would buy an electronic collar for a dog. We have two dogs (male 13 month old golden retriever/labrador that's 98lbs, and a female 9 month old german shepherd/german shorthair pointer mix that's 54 lbs). Our pups are so loved and spoiled that we are actually buying a king sized bed just so they can sleep with us. That being said, we would never do anything to damage them and I have found this collar to be a very respectful and a helpful tool to train them with. I bought this product a little less than a month ago and we have been utterly amazed at the success we have had. I feel much closer to our pups now that I can trust them so much more. Our golden/lab mix is very independent and smart. I weigh about as much as he does, and before we got the collars, he would pull on his leash so hard that he would either drag me on the ground or I would be forced to let go of the leash and he would take off. We have tried harnesses and gentle leaders, but he is smart enough to know how to give himself enough leverage to pull me down. He would always come back (eventually), but he does not really understand roads and cars, so we were terrified he was going to get hit. Since we got the collars, I only need to give him a verbal phase "no pulling" and he immediately heels! I only had to use the vibrate option (on 20 out of 100 - but he has a sensitive temperament). We have also been working on going potty outside off leash. I never thought I would be able to trust him off leash, but he is like a new dog! I feel like with the use of the collar, he now respects me as his owner and knows I'm the one in charge.
    When we first received the collars, I had them wear them during the day time for a week before we even programmed them. I did this so they would not become "collar-smart." I would recommend this technique to anyone thinking about implementing an electronic collar. Then we took them to our local dog park when no one else was there, and practiced. We started with a phrase they knew: first a verbal cue, then the beep, then the vibrate if they needed it. They learned so quickly, it was amazing! I have only ever used the shock once (setting 40 out of 100) on my german shepherd/gsp mix because she is less sensitive than her brother. I have them always wear the collar during the day, but I only use them when the pups are not responding to my verbal cues.
    I give Petrainer five stars because the technology is more than what I paid for, but I give this particular collar only three stars because the transmitter falls off easily. We have already lost one transmitter at our dog park, so I decided to buy another model that does not seem like it can fall off. I would suggest this to anyone with large dogs or dogs that like to wrestle. If your dog does not like to play with other dogs, then this would probably be a well designed collar for you. But for us, we need a more sturdy design.
    Hope this helps!
