Book Description

5 May 1994
Dr Bruce Fogle's behavioural approach to training is based on praise and reward and is suited to dogs of all sizes, breeds, ages, and temperaments. Starting with how your dog thinks, its personality and social development, Dr Fogle's training system covers everything you will ever need to know from basic but essential puppy training to advanced training in the young adult dog. The last third of the book is devoted to overcoming bad or unwanted habits such as chasing cars, or excessive barking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Intresting and worth every penny 30 Aug 1999
By A Customer
I bought this book when I was about to get my first dog, and I'd no idea how to properly look after the animal, even though I really wanted one. I bought this book and thought it was perfect for anyone who's going to get a dog. The Complete Dog Training Manuel ranges from what to do when you've first get the dog to your home, to how to train older dogs, and how to stop your dog barking... I definatly think that for those doggy lovers out there, young and old, this is a very handy book to have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comprehensive and useful guide 13 Mar 2000
By A Customer
My friend had this book from the library. I'm not a dog owner, but she is! On inspection this book seemed to cover everything a dog owner could need to know - even how to save a dog's life after it has practically drowned. Pictures are very clear. Book is quite large - but a handy, practical and easy to look up reference manual. I'm ordering it for my friend today. (There is a cat version which I believe is equally good.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow with good illustrations 26 Sep 2013
By Bessy
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This looks like a good book to get to follow through training your dog so that you are in charge not them! The illustrations are clear which helps us new owners a lot. Doesn't replace classes but helps in between to keep it up and ensure other family members are consistent in the messages we send our dogs! Recommended
