Dog University offers expert training techniques to teach your dog skills that help stimulate his mind, provide a source of fun to help relieve boredom, and make him a better companion. This interactive guide explains how dogs learn (an understanding of which is essential for skill building) and outlines training basics before delving into more advanced tasks like target training, signal control, directions, discrimination tasks, and behavior chains. Each complex concept is explained using easy-to-understand and fully-illustrated lesson plans. More than 300 vibrant color photographs highlight every step of each command. An exclusive at-a-glance star symbol system identifies each task as easy, medium, or difficult. The book even includes a preface by animal trainer Bob Bailey, a well-known pioneer of operant conditioning (the basis of reward-based training).

With Dog University , discover the tools to teach your furry friend how to perform exciting and challenging activities while increasing the bond shared by dog and handler.
