Get on the EXPRESS for Dog Training.
Hello dog lovers! Are you looking into getting a dog or puppy, or currently a first-time dog owner? Nevertheless, we already know you're a dog person, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this in the first place. (Sorry cat folks, but we're not talking to you right now.)
OK, now that we've addressed the obvious...why bother getting a dog?
Well, besides the fact that they're so cute and cuddly - and who in their right mind could resist that adorable face when your puppy wants to snuggle in your arms - they're the most loyal companions anybody can ask for, always there by your side no matter what without judging you.
Need some cheering up when you're feeling down? Your dog can do that. Need to get out of the house more and exercise? Your dog will force you off your couch to stay in shape.
They are indeed man's best friend. Sometimes, dogs are just better than people, and that's why we love them so much!
But do you know what would make you love your dog even more? Having a well-trained, obedient dog that will listen to your every command and even be able to do fancy tricks impressing those around, as a result of your training.
Why should you train your dog yourself when you can get somebody else to do it? Because it's your dog! If you let somebody else train your dog, it will associate a stronger bond with the other person that you could have built, which far outweighs any new dog tricks. By training your dog personally, you strengthen the dog-owner relationship shared between the both of you. So be your dog's own trainer.

I am the proud “parent” of three dogs: a black lab, a beagle-yellow lab mix, and poodle. I really enjoy having their company and want to learn as much as I can about dog care. Like other titles in the series, this book is a broad overview of dog care and training. Information is broken down into easy to digest sections using straightforward language. (I prefer this to other titles that bog you down with too much information or complicated vocabulary. ) The guide starts by discussing how to choose the right breed, some notes about dog care, and then how to train. Training topics include: bathroom training, walking on a leash, and barking. There’s always something new to learn when it comes to dog training. There are things I’m working on with my black lab and I can use some of the techniques in this book. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
There is very little useful content in this book. Instructions are minimal. Breed recommendations are unfounded. It seems impossible that anyone could train a dog by reading this book.
