Gentle Dog Training – Michel Hasbrouck (translated by Jean Gill)
At last! Gentle Dog Training, the method that proves that every dog can be trained.
Here is the tried and tested method, the fruit of 40 years experience with every breed of dog. A complete handbook for every dog-owner, guiding your dog through a basic education and into a happy relationship with its owner. A mthod that involves no hitting and no shouting. All you need to train a dog is clear authority, gentleness and to treat the dog as an intelligent being who is frequently rewarded and rarely punished.
Michael Hasbrouck has worked to this formula for decades, with thousands of dogs and he has proved that it is always possible to solve the dog-owner s problems with the right attitude in an atmosphere that makes the dog feel comfortable. When an owner is with their dog, the dog is aware of every gesture, movement, even thought, as training signals. Owners need to watch their behaviour as much as their dogs. Fully illustrated throughout.
