  • Adopted Murdock in December 2006 when he was 10 Mos old. He has been the best boy ever! We just learned he has Lymphoma & are devasted. I can't imagine life without him & am hoping he responds well to treatment and lives many more months!!

  • I lost my best friend, Evie, a year ago September. I adopted her in 2006, she was 2 years old. That sweet girl was the love of my life and I miss her dearly. Thank you MAESSR for bringing that beautiful dog into my life.

    Obedience training does not have to resemble Marine boot camp, with the dog as the recruit and the trainer as the drill instructor. Nor does it have to be work. Rather, as the title of this comprehensive guide suggests, it can be playful fun for both -- with a few rules thrown in to shape the game itno an obedience exercise.


    Playtraining Your Dog provides an alternative to the violence that conventional training methods inflict on the minds and bodies of dogs. Using widely known, standardized exercises from the American Kennel Club, and written in a clear, informative style, this book contributes to realizing the full potential of both the dog and the dog/owner relationship.


    Topics covered include:

    - instructors & training classes

    - training time

    - motivation

    - advice for showing a dog

    - cues & body language
