A well-trained dog rewards you with a kind of love and loyalty you won’t get anywhere else. But the secret of this relationship is not in the dog; it’s in the owner. Here’s a revolutionary approach to dog training based on observing what “natural” dog owners do instinctively- that is, they intuitively understand the canine mind and relate to a dog by thinking like a dog. Readers who follow their example will discover that, instead of trying to outsmart the dog, they’ll build up his IQ. Instead of trying different forms of punishment, they’ll enrich his environment. Together, owner and dog will throw away the old ideas of obedience and control, and build a deeper relationship based on mutual respect.
