Trick is in the Training by Stephanie J. Taunton
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Canine tricks are showy extensions of a dog's natural behaviour. Training dogs to perform tricks enhances the bond between pet and owner and adds to playtime fun. This updated book shows dog owners in words and pictures how to train their pet to perform both simple and complicated tricks. After reviewing four basic commands - sit, down, stand, and stay - the book instructs on progressing to behaviours such as jump through a hoop, weave through legs, balance a biscuit, and many others. The authors present step-by-step instructions for dozens of fun tricks, and offer tips and suggestions to help readers work through problems. Successful training can lead to enhanced pet therapy visits, success in talent competitions, and perhaps even a part in a local stage production. The dog-and-handler team that progresses through all of this book's behaviours will develop talents that could lead to public performance. But even dog owners who aren't interesting in progressing to that level can learn much from the ideas and instruction presented in this book. This new edition presents all-new photos plus a full chapter of new tricks - more opportunities than ever for dogs and handlers to have fun together.
