Only Dog Tricks You’ll Ever Need (the)

bielakwiewicz_only_dogtricksPUBLISHING YEAR: 2005

SUMMARY: Series of dog tricks and how to teach them with excellent supporting explanations on training theory.

AUDIENCE: Owners who want to learn the industry secrets in a non-intimidating volume, for practical, witty, real-life tricks. Also very useful as a trainer to spice up your classes with a ‘fun’ section.

REVIEW: Despite its modest title, this is one of the best books I have read on dog training in general (not just tricks).

It gives you clear, thorough methodology to teach each step, from basic manners to intricate tricks.

The book uses specific examples to beautifully illustrate generic training principles (backward chaining, behaviour shaping, intermittent vs. continuous ratios, etc.).

I found it full of fantastic training suggestions, and it gave me second wind when I was hitting a dry spot with my own rescue dog.
