Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
A breakthrough approach to dog training, tapping the power of cooperation by integrating a dog's natural instinct with an owner's personality. Kate Perry has seen it all: the secret pee-ers, the delivery-man harassers, the agoraphobics. Every dog presents a unique set of drives, traits, and needs--and so does every owner. Delivering the effective approach that has made her a highly sought-after canine consultant, "Training for Both Ends of the Leash" incorporates the owner's lifestyle and household setup to create a balanced training program and reliable behavior for dogs and their owners. "Training for Both Ends of the Leash" helps identify a dog's dominant drives and personality so that owners can develop a personalized training system that targets specific problems. Only positive reinforcement is permitted, and owners are taught how to appropriately accommodate a dog's tendencies, leading to a fun, loving, and respectful atmosphere in which owner and pet can forge a strong bond based on trust. Featuring personal stories from her client files, along with Perry's unique Canine-ality Quiz to determine your dog's temperment and advice with Professor Sophie (Kate's pug, who has helped train more than 3,000 dogs), the book covers every concern, from housebreaking and socialization to street smarts and anxiety.
For anyone who is struggling with a new dog or simply wants to improve a situation with a current dog, "Training for Both Ends of the Leash" puts people and their pups on the road to domestic bliss.

Review by Library Journal (2012-10-01)

Perry, a dog trainer, and Conza, the founder of woof patrol. com, here explain how different training methods, which take into account an individual dog's drives and personality ("canine-ality") and the owner's lifestyle, can be combined to create a tailor-made program. Drawing from the foundational work of such trainers as Turid Rugaas and Joachim Volhard, they developed their own program to teach owners how to build a mutually happy relationship through positive reinforcement training.

Their comprehensive, jargon-free guide addresses everything from bringing home a new puppy or rescue to training challenges. Canine body language, house training, loose-leash walking, basic commands, desensitization, and counter conditioning are all explained, as are equipment, exercise choices, health, and behavior issues. Particularly noteworthy are the chapter on early socialization experiences and the list of additional resources.

Verdict: An excellent manual for novice dog owners and those looking to improve their dog-training skills. On a par with Beth Stern's Oh My Dog and Victoria Stilwell's It's Me or the Dog.

A breakthrough approach to dog training, tapping the power of cooperation by integrating a dog’s natural instinct with an owner’s personality.
Kate Perry has seen it all: the secret pee-ers, the delivery-man harassers, the agoraphobics. Every dog presents a unique set of drives, traits, and needs—and so does every owner. Delivering the effective approach that has made her a highly sought-after canine consultant, Training for Both Ends of the Leash incorporates the owner’s lifestyle and household setup to create a balanced training program and reliable behavior for dogs and their owners.
Training for Both Ends of the Leash helps identify a dog’s dominant drives and personality so that owners can develop a personalized training system that targets specific problems. Only positive reinforcement is permitted, and owners are taught how to appropriately accommodate a dog’s tendencies, leading to a fun, loving, and respectful atmosphere in which owner and pet can forge a strong bond based on trust. Featuring personal stories from her client files, along with Perry’s unique Canine-ality Quiz to determine your dog’s temperment and advice with Professor Sophie (Kate’s pug, who has helped train more than 3,000 dogs), the book covers every concern, from housebreaking and socialization to street smarts and anxiety.
