Do you have an impossible dog? Does your dog come when called, heel properly when you go for a walk, and sit quietly when you ask him to? If your answer is a resounding "No!" then you may think you have an impossible dog, a "Pigs Fly" dog, one you may think can never be trained. But think again! Most kinds of dogs that people have trouble training (typically Hounds, Terriers, some Northern Breeds) actually have many characteristics that make them quite trainable - they are smart, they are good problem solvers, and they have strong drives to get what they want. If this describes your dog, then it's time to start working with your dog's nature, not against it. The key to training success with these dogs is to figure out what they find rewarding and then use those rewards to get the behavior you want. You'll be amazed at what your "bad" dog will do when you know how he thinks and what turns him on!

"Training the Best Dog Ever", originally published in hardcover as "The Love That Dog Training Program", is a book based on love and kindness. It features a program of positive reinforcement and no-fail techniques that author Dawn Sylvia- Stasiewicz used to train the White House dog, Bo Obama, and each of Senator Ted Kennedy's dogs, among countless others. "Training the Best Dog Ever" relies on trust and treats, not choke collars; on bonding, not lead-yanking or reprimanding. The five-week training program takes only 10 to 20 minutes of practice a day and works both for puppies and for adult dogs that need to be trained out of bad habits. Illustrated with step-by-step photographs, the book covers hand-feeding; crate and potty training; and basic cues - sit, stay, come here - as well as more complex goals, such as bite inhibition and water safety. It shows how to avoid or correct typical behaviour problems, including jumping, barking, and lead-pulling. Plus: how to make your dog comfortable in the world - a dog that knows how to behave in a vet's office, is at ease around strangers, and more. In other words, the best dog ever.
