Item Description...

101 Dog Tricks is the largest trick book on the market and the only one presenting full-color photos of each trick and its training steps? The step-by-step approach, difficulty rating, and prerequisites, allow readers to start training immediately. Tips and trouble-shooting boxes cover common problems, while "build-on" ideas suggest more complicated tricks which build on each new skill. No special tools (such as clickers) or knowledge of specific training methods are required. Trick training is a great way to bond with your dog and help him integrate into your family. It keeps him mentally and physically challenged and helps to establish paths of communication between you. Many tricks build skills needed for common dog sports, dog dancing, and dog therapy work. It's every dog lover's privilege that Kyra and Chalcy took time from their performing schedule to share their secrets in 101 Dog Tricks.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
What fun!  Nov 27, 2008
Although I seriously doubt that my little Nellie will ever come close to doing what Chalcy does, we are still having a ball learning together from 101 Dog Tricks. The format of this book is wonderfully easy to follow and the photos are delightful. Thanks Kyra for providing us with one more way to thoroughly enjoy sharing our lives with dogs!
Lots of good dog tricks  Nov 20, 2008
My puppy is just starting to learn "sit", but the behavior shaping that the book illustrates will be useful in the future.
Loads of fun  Nov 19, 2008
This book is great. I have a young puppy, so we haven't gone very far with the tricks quite yet, but this is sure to foster a bond between us and be loads of fun. Some of the tricks in this book are outright hilarious!
Beautiful pictures, appalling techniques and tactics.  Nov 18, 2008
The only reason I have given this book 2 stars is that it contains really lovely pictures. Beyond that, I am appalled by the content of the book.

The "trainer" advocates negative reinforcement as a training tool, which is not only an ineffective technique, it is harmful to the dog/owner bond. The proper way to effectively train an animal, whether you're teaching it to sit, stay, or not poop on your bed, is through positive reinforcement and association. "Bopping" an animal's face or shoving its nose/head down into the posture you want it to adopt is completely stupid. It's mean, it's telling the dog that you don't value it enough to refrain from physically striking it, and it doesn't *teach* the dog what you want it to do.

If you're wanting to hit your dog, or believe that negative physical contact is the best way to train a dog to sit or lie down, then this book is for you.

If, on the other hand, you are wanting to learn the best way to really bond with your dog, teach it loads of tricks and manners, and have a happy, healthy, trusting pet, stay as far away from this book as possible. Buy a book on clicker training instead. That will be money well spent.
Excellent Book  Nov 17, 2008
This book is worth every penny I paid for it. It has beautiful colored photographs of every trick with step-by-step instructions. It also provides a wide variety of tricks from the basics to the more complex agility training. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is wanting to train their dog.
