Foreword by: Ian Dunbar

Subject Matter:

You are a dedicated pet owner who has put considerable time and energy into training your dog.  As a result, your dog has a reliable set of behaviors such as sit, down, stay and a recall - under pristine conditions.  But now you’re stumped; you’re to sure how to get those behaviors away from home and off leash - in short; when you really need cooperation!

This book will help you gain cooperation under a range of circumstances and with only about ten minutes of training time per day! This book will take you through a systematic and comprehensive plan to get you where you want to be; with a reliable companion who cooperates off leash, away from home and….when other things are going on around you!

This book has been split into three parts:

The first part is educational. It provides information about the theory and philosophy of training. This section will be valuable for everyone, but especially if you’re the kind of person who likes to know why you’re doing something a certain way before you do it.

The second part is practical. It’s the “how-to” part of the book. Here, Denise lays out the plan you’ll be following to help your dog respond to your cues even when the world is exciting or you don’t have cookies. This portion is extremely systematic and specific.

Finally, the third part is problem-solving. It will help you troubleshoot any issues that arise. In addition, if you find that you really enjoyed the training process, it will guide you in finding more opportunities for you and your dog!
