TRAINING FOR BOTH ENDS OF THE LEASH
A Guide to Cooperation Training for You and Your Dog
Whether you are working to set ground rules with a new dog or strengthen bonds with an existing dog, Training For Both Ends of the Leash offers a unique comprehensive, user-friendly read that supports the cooperative training process.
In TRAINING ON BOTH ENDS OF THE LEASH, readers take the same tried-and-true quiz Kate provides her clients in order to assess their dog’s canine-ality and dominant drives (pack, prey, fight, flight). Discerning your dog’s behavior is the first step to creating a personalized training system that will help you to help your dog develop techniques and skills and target problematic or challenging drives.
And of course it’s all done through Kate’s unique approach to cooperative training, which includes adjusting training to accommodate dogs’ behavioral patterns and tendencies, and uses only positive reinforcement. Cooperative training aims to create a fun and loving atmosphere and a relationship of respect, trust and understanding in order to establish a strong bond between owner and pet. Through the lens of cooperative training, Kate covers all of the essential training categories: housebreaking, socialization, exposures (including Kate’s unique “100 Exposures in 100 Days” technique), street smarts for dogs, play, exercise, and dealing with anxiety (a behavioral trait more and more dogs are dealing with today). Each chapter will include a personal story pulled right from her client files, user-friendly instructions and exercises, visual aids and photography, and sidebars with Professor Sophie, Kate’s own pug who has helped to teach over 3,000 dogs.
Kate Perry is owner of Kate Perry Dog Training (servicing six NY locations).
