This book will teach you everything you need to know to get your dog ready to pass the American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Test. While I was reading it, I came across a few interesting ideas that I wanted to share.
- Use pleasant experiences, such as inducing your dog to sit with a treat.
- The most important benefit of training your dog is safety.
- Dogs are social animals, and one of the cruelest forms of punishment is to deprive them of the opportunity to interact with family members.
- Well-behaved dogs control their impulses around others and listen to their owners, making the dogs a pleasure to be around.
