This book specifically focuses on training and training exercises in a step-by-step manner. It contains fewer theories and philosophy and instead includes more actual training techniques with dog training tips.

The most popular current method of training is a method of positive reinforcement. The behavior is reinforced through food, kindness or praising. This method is excellent for training puppies. But the truth is that you cannot raise a dog without negative feedback. Nature is full of negative reinforcement, and parental canines use that to train their young in the wild. They do it because it is effective and it is how pups learn. On the other hand, you should not base your training on negative feedback alone. The most important guideline is to be consistent in your training and in your reinforcement. Don't let your bad day at work become a reason to over-stimulate your dog.

If you are going to train a dog, this book will help guide you through the process.
