Holiday Gift Guide- The Love That Dog Training Program Book Review and Giveaway





(Using Positive Reinforcement to Train the Perfect Family Dog)

By Dawn Sylvia-Stasiewicz and Larry Kay

Hardback Book
Pages 224


About The Love That Dog Training Program
(from the Workman website)

"Dawn Sylvia-Stasiewicz is a very special trainer. She knows dogs instinctively, and, drawing on lessons she learned from raising three children, she uses the power of positive reinforcement and bonding to train dogs to be joyful, obedient, and devoted members of a family. Dog lovers throughout the Washington, DC, area know her: She trained each of the late Senator Ted Kennedy’s dogs, and when the Obama family were deciding on a puppy— and could have chosen any trainer in the world to work with—it was Ms Sylvia-Stasiewicz who trained Bo.

In The Love That Dog Training Program, a lively, accessible, authoritative book, she shares her invaluable and proven program. Her method is based on positive reinforcement. She believes in trust and treats, not choke collars; in bonding, not squeezing or hitting. Her dogs are happy and self-confident, spirited yet very well-behaved. The basic program is five weeks, it takes only 15 or 20 minutes a day, and it works for both puppies and dogs, including retraining a dog with bad habits. Illustrated with step-by-step photographs, The Love That Dog Training Program covers hand-feeding. Crate training and potty training. Simple commands—sit, stay, come here—as well as more complex goals, such as bite inhibition and water safety. It shows how to avoid or correct common behavioral problems including jumping, barking, noise phobias, hiding, and more. Then: how to make your dog comfortable in the world—a dog that travels well, knows how to behave in a dog park or vet’s office, is comfortable around strangers, and more. As the author points out, dog training never ends, it just gets easier—and even more rewarding. "


     We have been blessed to have a pretty good dog that we rescued! He was a frightened dog at first and has bloomed into a happy energized dog. We have tried our own little ways to train Lucky to do certain things. I believe we have done a good job, but I am happy to now have the experience to read the book, The Love That Dog Training Program, so I can learn more helpful information on how to train a dog in a positive way.

I love that this book can help us teach our dogs to:


- Never pull on his leash
- Be relaxed around food
- Enjoy spending time in his crate
- Calmly accept grooming and bathing
- Stop begging, barking, and biting
- Respond to verbal cues
- Give up jumping and furniture chewing
- Learn tricks
- Be safe around water
- And much more!!

     This book has 12 easy to read chapters! I love the fact that this book has pictures to show you what to do! It is very helpful to have the pictures! This book is also a really nice hardback book.


     I look forward to reading this book more and to learn more helpful tips! I have enjoyed this book so far and I would recommend it to you! This book would be great for an animal lover, pet owner, or the soon to be pet owner who is thinking about getting a dog this holiday season!
