Increasingly, owners take their dogs everywhere and expect them to behave in all kinds of social situations. This book shares the proven methods of assistance and therapy dog trainers; after all, assistance dogs are models of doggy decorum. Complete with instructive photos, this guide emphasizes socialization and espouses dog-friendly, reward-based techniques. The training creates a reliable, owner-focused dog and an owner who can read his pet and proactively prevent problems. The result? A reliable canine companion who is welcome anywhere.
