The Best Dog Tricks on the Planet: 106 Amazing Things Your Dog Can Do on Command
If you are wanting to teach your dog some tricks or just teach him/her to sit and stay, “The Best Dog Tricks on the Planet” is the book for you. Written by celebrity dog trainer, Babette Haggerty, this book covers it all. Well organized with super easy to follow instructions. I love how each trick has hand signals and verbal cues for your dog to follow. All of the tricks give you a degree of difficulty and an average time it will take for your fur baby to learn them.It also shows gentle ways to get your pet to obey without forcing them to.This makes it fun for both of you.
I am super impressed with the diversity of things that can be taught to your dog. Everything from the basics to teaching your dog to dance and sort laundry are covered. Yes I said sort laundry. There are games, fun ways to impress your friends and even tricks that can help you out like ringing a doorbell and wiping their feet. If you have a dog you need this book.
