A brand-new training regimen—off-leash in 30 days!—from the pack who brought you The Art of Raising a Puppy.
The Monks of New Skete, longtime breeders of German shepherds and established dog trainers of all breeds, have developed a new training technique. A decade in the making, this program represents a leap into the future, using cutting-edge technology and a game-changing tool: the remote electronic collar.
The Art of Training Your Dog presents their compassionate and efficient system for the first time, with background and advice on choosing the right collar. Employing a method designed by trainer Marc Goldberg, readers integrate the e-collar gradually, laying the foundation for good behavior with intentional and purposeful walks. Using very low stimulation at just the right time focuses a dog’s attention for effortless learning moments that tie into a dog’s natural pack instincts and help strengthen the bond between dog and human. In no time, readers will see their pups master commands like “sit,” “stay,” and “place”; stop troublesome behaviors; and run safely off-leash with consistent recall.
