Training is the first concern of every new puppy owner, and this Smart Owner's Guide Puppy Training offers 176 pages of concise guidance to get every owner and puppy on the right track. As Dog Fancy Editor-at-Large states in the introduction: Once your puppy is well trained, he'll be a joy to live with. He will be welcomed in your community and will make you proud whether you're traveling with him, entertaining guests at home or just hanging out with the family. Toward that goal, Puppy Training begins with Part 1: House-Training, written by long-time Dog Fancy contributor Bardi McLennan. This section discusses everything the owner needs to know to start off with the puppy in the home, getting him acclimated to the new environment, and teaching him the basic principles of house-training. A detailed chapter titled The Doggie Den discusses how to crate-train a puppy and the best ways to use (and not use) a dog crate. The second part of the book, written by award-winning dog trainer and author Miriam Fields-Babineau, is dedicated to Obedience Training. In this section of the book, the author discusses canine communication, good manners, and socialization. The basic cues are explained, beginning with walking on a loose leash, and progressing to sit, down, stay, come, and stand. Each lesson is broken down into steps and illustrated by photography to assist the owner. A chapter on advanced training coaches the owner on how to work with his or her dog off leash, adding distance and distractions, and more. Critical to the success of every puppy owner is solving potential behavioral issues, and the book offers solutions to various problems, including jumping up, garbage picking, excessive barking, stealing food and other items, counter surfing, cat chasing, door darting, mouthing and chewing.

Great Dane: Training, Grooming, and Dog Care
This book is part of Hyperink's best little books series. This best little book is over 3,600 words of fast, entertaining information on a highly demanded topic. Based on reader feedback (including yours!), we may expand this book in the future. If we do so, we'll send a free copy to all previous buyers. ABOUT THE BOOK Great Danes, sometimes known as German Mastiffs, are powerful dogs with robust, galloping figures and a majestic stance. Their even temper combined with their charming and affectionate nature often leads them to be referred to as gentle giants. The lineage of the Great Dane can be traced back to at least 36 B.C. where images of the breed appeared on Roman coins. It is possible that their history goes back even further. The American Kennel Club reports how historians have found ancient carvings of animals resembling the Great Dane on Egyptian monuments dated around 3000 B.C. Chinese literature from 1121 B.C. also provides a written description of dogs similar to Great Danes. One of the tallest dog breeds in the world, the Great Dane could never be described as diminutive in stature. Although the breed is often characterized alongside other giant dog breeds like the Old English Mastiff, New Foundland and the Saint Bernard, in practice it is often a Great Dane that is announced to be the tallest living dog in any one year. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Crate training can be useful when housetraining a Great Dane. A crate with warm bedding and chew toys will allow your dog to indulge in his natural instincts to make a den. Dogs are reluctant to soil the area in which they sleep. Crates must always be introduced gradually and should never be used as a punishment. Keep in mind that the crate will need to be sufficiently large enough to accommodate the rapid growth and size of a Great Dane. Socializing Your Great Dane It is imperative that you properly socialize a Great Dane puppy. This process will ensure the emotional health of your dog and the physical safety of people and other animals. You should aim to introduce your dog to a wide variety of people, animals and environments. A Great Dane socialized in this manner will be a happier, more confident dog and less prone to skittish behavior. The process of socializing your Great Dane should start by introducing him to many different people who should be encouraged to pet him and offer a small treat. Your dog will learn to associate the people around him with positive experiences... Buy a copy to keep reading!
