Training the German Shepherd dog begins with praise and other associative learning methods. The author advises owners on setting realistic goals.
As part of the Training Your Dog Series you will be taught just that; how to train your dog, with special emphasis on your special breed. Virtually every aspect of training is covered, including housebreaking and paper training, basic obedience, teaching the animal to obey both verbal and hand signals, retrieving and walking on a leash.
Also covered are humane methods of breaking a dog's bad habits, such as begging, jumping on people, unnecessary barking, and biting. Each book is filled with instructive full-color photos.
Other breeds featured in this Series are the Labrador Retriever and the Rottweiler.
