If you're like most dog owners, you want a trustworthy companion you can take on family vacations, on hikes, and to cafes and festivals. You want your dog to behave when you have guests, stay peacefully at hotels, ride calmly in elevators, and maintain proper doggie decorum in all kinds of situations. This book taps into the secrets of assistance and therapy dog trainers and shows you how to use focused foundation socialization training to make sure your dog is well behaved--even in unfamiliar environments loaded with distractions and temptations. It goes beyond typical behavioral training and basic commands to cover: evaluating your dog and recognizing traits that will affect her needs; using reward-based processes to teach complex behaviors and self-discipline; creating a socialization program that makes your dog confident in different environments; reading your dog so you can keep her focused on your directions. --From publisher description.
