Why is it awesome for stay-at-home parents now?
This book will inspire dog owners to do more with their pooches while being confined at home. Trick training not only helps you form a tighter bond with your dog, but establishes paths of communication between the two of you.
The tricks found in this book build skills that are usually found in dog sports, dog dancing, and dog therapy work. There are 12 chapters to choose from: groundwork, traditional favourites, time for chores, funny dog, modern conveniences, let’s play a game, jumping and catching, jumping through hoops, obstacle course, that dog can dance, the thinking man’s dog, and love me, love my dog.
Aside from easy-to-follow instructions and coloured images, each trick comes with a difficulty rating and requirements you must have before you get started. There are also quick solutions for common problems, as well as build-on ideas that can level up a basic trick. At the end of the book, you can also find appendices for tricks by skill level and by sport.
