So you want a dog, or maybe you’ve already adopted a dog, and it’s a lot more trouble than you expected? You can picture a furry little ball of energy coming home in a box, tail wagging, ready to meet you and become your new best friend. But what happens next? In your imagination, maybe it’s a great day full of fun, bonding, and absolutely no accidents…but how likely is that, really?

Adopting a new puppy is a high-risk, high-reward situation for a lot of people, no matter what previous experience they might have. Every dog is different, and even the best research won’t prepare you for unexpected quirks and issues. The good news is that everything your dog does or doesn’t do is completely trainable.

From potty problems to obedience training, you can handle it all with just three tools: positive reinforcement, patience, and Dog Training 101 to guide you along the way!

Dog Training 101 offers training guidance for the most basic tasks, like sitting, staying, and fetching, to more complicated canine etiquette, like leash training and socializing with other pets. In addition to instructional exercises, Quinn also dives into the ins and outs of working with different dog breeds, and training theory on the advantages of various methodologies.

With a firm belief in positive reinforcement training, Quinn strives to train your dog from puppyhood to adulthood, while maintaining a healthy relationship with you. He highlights the advantages of using positive methods and shows how they are much more successful than using harsh punishments or negative incentives for dogs while training.

Beginners and experts alike will be able to latch onto the straight-forward information and step-by-step exercises outlined in each chapter. Whether you adopt an affectionate, long-haired big buddy, or an aloof, toy-sized little pal, you should be able to start off on the right paw with these tips and tricks.
