Product Description

Here's the #1 problem you face today if you want a well-behaved dog: There’s so much conflicting information, you don't know what to do, and what you’ve done so far hasn’t gotten you the results you wanted.

Also, you're concerned you’ll get stuck with a dog that will never be trained -- or worse, you’ll have to give up your dog because you couldn’t find the right training methods – But don't worry! Why?

Because you can use the proven methods, techniques, and scientific understanding about dogs I share with you in this book to have a well behaved dog who does what you want. You’ll also be able to prevent future problems so your family can stop arguing about your dog. And you’ll avoid harming your dog because of bad training advice.

In this one of a kind, NEW dog behavior and training book I’ll tell you how to avoid the harmful mistakes that make your dog's behavior worse and keep you and your family annoyed and frustrated. You’ll also discover what you DON’T have to do so you won’t waste your valuable time and still not help your dog.

Heck, I'll even show you why having your dog do what you want has nothing to do with "being dominant" AND I'll expose many of the dog training myths you’ve been told (or seen on TV) so you can be confident about the best ways to get your dog to do what you want!

In fact, here's just a sample of the dog behavior and training pitfalls and landmines I'll help you avoid in this unique book:
•Why believing the myth of "pack leadership' may be the biggest mistake of all!
•Why believing the answer to unwanted behavior is finding the right discipline method actually dooms you before you even get started...
•The consequences of allowing your dog to be a couch potato (hint: they aren't good!)...
•Why it's so critical that you avoid having your dog spend too much time in a crate...
•How and why you must avoid allowing your dog to repeat unwanted behavior (and how to interrupt these behaviors quickly and humanely)...
• Why believing your dog knows right from wrong will instantly sabotage your results...
•How to sidestep permitting your dog to greet another when they’re both on leash (and why this can be so dangerous)...
•Why you should never worry that comforting or reassuring your dog when he's afraid will WORSEN his behavior (it won't - you really can’t reinforce fear!)
•How letting good behavior go unrewarded can backfire (and really bite you on the butt - literally!)...
•How to recognize signs of fear, anxiety, and stress in your dog (and why you can't afford to miss them)...
•Why disagreement among family members about how to work with your dog really hurts your chances of success...
•How relying on physical methods such as collar grabs, leash corrections, and prying items out of your dog's mouth won’t give you the results you want (and can actually worsen your dog’s behavior with a single incident)...
•... and much, MUCH More!

Don't miss this cutting-edge book by internationally known Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist Dr. Suzanne Hetts so you can STOP worrying about the mistakes you are (or could be) making in your efforts to have a well behaved dog, have the peace of mind knowing you CAN train your dog, and finally start making progress improving your dog’s behavior.

By the way, this book is NOT about focusing on the negative, it's about focusing on people who love their dogs, want to do right by them, but also need to see real improvements in their dogs’ behaviors quickly. So, if you're a dog owner who wants to avoid making the dog behavior and training mistakes that regularly sabotage other people's results, grab your copy today!
