   schema:description ""Training dogs has traditionally been done by using negative reinforcement and brute force (take the choke collar as an example). But the tide is turning, and Terry Ryan, well-known dog trainer, is at the forefront of a revolution. This book draws on her twenty-five years of hands-on experience helping people understand and train dogs, and solve dog behavior problems using kinder, gentler methods. It uses more brain than brawn to motivate dog behavior with positive training techniques, and helps readers truly understand the minds of their canine friends (and even enemies). Chapters cover: .outwitting puppies, housebreaking, curing the chronic chewer, how to cure the leash puller, the dog that jumps on people, the dog that hates to be left alone, the dog that won't come, the dog that barks too much, the biter, the aggressor, how to outwit the neighbor's dog, how to teach your dog tricks, how to outwit dog trainers, and even a chapter on outwitting dogs and kids at the same time, and much more"--Publisher's description."@en ;
