I highly recommend the book by Michelle Masters Teaching Dogs Practical Life Skills: A Step by Step Guide & Workbook available on Amazon.
Whether you're just getting started with your training, or you're experiencing some problems, the practical life skills and information provided in this book will get you on the right track in no time. When you know what to teach, how to teach it and when to teach it, you provide your dog with a strong, well rehearsed toolkit of behaviours to choose from, so they find it easier to understand us and respond appropriately, no matter what the situation.
Also as some of you know a second book has been written by myself and Michelle Masters on balancing of our own emotional energy which has a huge impact on our dog's lives and with any sentient being we come into contact with on a daily basis. It has been written as a fantastic companion to all force free training techniques.
Michelle and I have never actually met in person but worked together in the rehabilitation of street dogs at different ends of the country during which time we realised quickly our beliefs and methods were the same so soon became good friends.
The initial draft was offered a publishing contract on the spot, obviously we were very excited but after much thought we will be releasing it very soon on Amazon so stay tuned.
