Publisher's Summary

You’ve got your new dog; you’ve got the bowl, the collar, and the lead. Now what? This puppy doesn’t seem to understand anything you say! You got your pet to be your companion, yet all you seem to do is yell at her!

Let’s change this right away. Instead of focusing on what you don’t want your dog to do, focus on what you do want. Instead of having unnecessary battles over trivia, build up terrific games your dog longs to play with you. Soon, your unruly dog will be saying, “Yes? What would you like me to do for you?” 

And thus begins a wonderful partnership. Beverley takes you by the hand and leads you through the games and lessons, step by step. There’s no strange jargon, no “thou shalt not’s”, and every time you get stuck, another solution pops up. Through years of experience teaching new owners how to work with their puppies and dogs entirely without force, Beverley knows just what you’re up against! 

Book 1 explains how to find your dog’s "off" switch! You’ll wonder how you managed before you learned this. 

Book 2 has you teaching your dog impulse control, so that by being trustworthy around food and doorways, he gets greater freedom.

Book 3 brings you the holy grail of dog ownership - walking nicely on the lead. With just a couple of games a day, you’ll get the calm walks you yearn for.

Book 4 teaches your dog the life-saving and sanity-preserving skill of coming back instantly on one call. He’ll have such fun that he’ll be halfway back to you before he knows it.
