Produced by the award-winning maranGraphics Group, Maran's Illustrated Guide to Dog Training is a valuable resource to a wide range of readers - from individuals picking up their first puppy to those who are looking to eliminate their pet's annoying behaviors. Instead of describing the myriad ways to perform each task, Maran's Illustrated Guide to Dog Training shows you the best way, while the full-color photographs and clear, step-by-step instructions walk you through each task from beginning to end. Thorough topic introductions and useful tips provide additional information and advice to help enhance your dog training experience. Maran's Illustrated Guide to Dog Training is packed with essential information for teaching simple commands and performing the most impressive tricks. Maran's Illustrated Guide to Dog Training costs less than the price of one private training lesson, and will be a permanent resource that can be accessed at any time.
