51 Puppy Tricks

Rating
Most other puppy training books focus on curbing bad behavior. Some have training, but only the most basic tricks. Kyra's curriculum differs from that of "101 Dog Tricks" in that the instructions are geared for the less mature dog. Young puppies are not yet well-tuned to humans, and respond better to a clicker than to a voice. Also, young puppies have so few skills that we benefit from a technique called 'shaping' which breaks a behavior into minute steps for easier learning. And, of course, with puppies we are extra gentle when we teach, and we focus more on instilling a love of learning and a communication pathway rather than accomplishing the goal behavior. Each trick is taught as discrete units, but similar tricks will be grouped into chapters such as: 'Build Confidence', 'Build Coordination', and 'Build Communication'.
