Family Friendly Dog Training:  A Six Week Program for you and your Dog,  by Patricia McConnell and Aimee M Moore.  Dog’s Best Friend Limited, 2006.

This user friendly and engaging book describes a 6 week program to get dogs and owners off on the right paw.  It includes humane and scientifically based methods to teach basic exercises, but also how to make training from both ends of the leash fun, and how to ensure reliable responses while still being your dog’s best friend.  Equally useful as an adjunct to training classes,  or for people who are “home schooling”.  ( review)  This is another wonderful book from Patricia McConnell, who is the well known author of For the Love of a Dog, and The Other End of the Leash.
