  •  Three years ago, we made the best decision in deciding to adopt another ESS.  Zoey then came to us and is the BEST dog ever.  She is not only beautiful but so well behaved and is loved by everyone. We can't thank MAESSR and Debbie enough for giving us Zoey.                                                                                                                                                                                                  Judy Minnick, NJ

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 into 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
