Summary

Teach your dog something more substantial than cheap tricks.

Your dog may be barking all night, keeping you up, and annoying your neighbors. Or they could be chewing up your furniture and leaving a total mess in your living room. Whatever the bad behavior, these situations are usually manageable when they just occur a few times.

If you’ve reached your breaking point in getting your dog to behave, don’t give up just yet. There are a number of things you can do to teach your dog to not just follow your commands, but to also behave in the right way without having to be told.

In Dogs and Goals Training vs Behavior, you will find out how to deal with your dog’s problems, as well as the other aspects of dog rearing that you need to know. Inside, you will discover:

  • How you can prevent your dog from ruining your precious flower bed without depriving them of their desire to dig through stuff
  • The innocent signs of affection you shower on your dog that is actually harming your bond with them, and the alternative acts that they prefer
  • The useful tool that assists you with training, safety, and cleanliness, ensuring that both you and your dog feel secure, even when you’re away from home
  • The most effective dog training method that will not only help you teach tricks but also improve behavior
  • And much more

Being attuned to your dog’s needs will bring you a long way in fixing their behavior. You can find out what is causing your dog to act up and resolve this in a more constructive way that sets them up to behave better in the future. 

By putting in a bit of effort today, you will have years of effortless dog rearing, spending less time on discipline and more time on bonding with your dog instead.

If you want to make more wonderful memories with your beloved dog rather than spend time cleaning up their messes, then scroll up and click the “Buy Now” button right now. You need this audiobook today!

Interesting insights into dog ownership

This book surprised me in the most positive sense of the word. It approaches training from a long term behavioral standpoint rather than just using Pavlovian conditioning which doesn't form a bond between you and your dog. I'd recommend it to any dog lover, especially those who are bringing one into their home for the first time.

Quick and simple, much like the commands.

A consise guide to all things dog training. Some interesting insights into (you and) your dog's behaviour. Felt some areas could have been more in depth and there was some repetition but definitely a good "starter" book.

So informative!

So so informative! It was really interesting to hear some of the perspectives on behavior - from the perspective of someone who’s just bought a dog, this had everything I needed to know and more.

I bought this book for my friend whose children have been petering her to get them a dog for a long time. I thought I'd read the book before giving it to her. this book gives information about everything from choosing a dog to training and bonding with them and everything in between. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for information about owning a dog and what skills they'll need to make that special relationship last a lifetime.

So Thankful for this Book!

It's not an easy feat to train a dog, and I've been trying it out for too long without help. I finally purchased this and feel much more equipped now to tackle this. It's helped already, actually. It's easy to listen to, and mindful of the basics and some tougher aspects to training a dog. I appreciate that the author focuses on alpha dog training, and how to tackle this. This book is straightforward and recommended.

More Practical and Intuitive Than Competing Titles

Bought this audiobook as I'd tried a number of other titles, each of which didn't work well for myself or my Terrier. This title takes a different approach to training, grounded in understanding your dog's pscyhology, its biologic tendencies, and the logic behind the behavior it displays.

After listening to this book and applying the techniques included, my dog was acting out less, and deferring to me in a variety of scenarios it hadn't before. While much of this is understanding your dog's perspective, the training is practical, no-nonsense, and easy to apply strategies.

For anyone with a hard to contain or train dog, Dogs and Goals Training vs Behavior is a functional, intuitive, and well laid out title that will definitely help you work with your dog more effectively.

I'm now ready to get that dog!

My 7 years old daughter has been on my neck about buying a puppy for a while now.
I've been reluctant because I wasn't too sure what it would take to own and raise a dog.
Well, all my worries have been put to rest completely, thanks to Alex's book.
I highly recommend it if are thinking of getting a dog or if you just got one.
