Cesar takes on the topic of training for the first time, explaining the importance of balance as the foundation for a healthy relationship between you and your dog. To provide a variety of training options, Cesar calls upon experts in the field, including Bob Bailey, Ian Dunbar, Joel Silverman, and Mark Harden, to help you find the perfect approach that works for you and your dog, whether a new puppy or an old dog. He shares the most effective and humane methods for teaching your dog how to be a happy, well behaved member of your household. He addresses the most popular training techniques, including positive reinforcement and using a clicker; ways to teach basic obedience commands such as sit, stay, and come; the importance of balance, and why a well-trained dog does not necessarily mean a balanced one; and how to use your dog's own natural inclinations to create better behavior. --From publisher description.
