K9 Obedience Training
Teaching Pets and Working Dogs to Be Reliable and Free-Thinking
Obedience is the foundation of any reliable, well-trained dog. Without obedience, working dogs are ineffective in operations and pet dogs can be annoying and possibly a danger to themselves or others. In K9 Obedience Training, veteran search and rescue (SAR) dog handler and trainer Susan Bulanda shares the secrets of building an effective obedience training program. SAR dogs need “thinking” obedience: they sometimes need to exercise intelligent disobedience in the field. You can use the same training program for any working or pet dog.
Susan also includes a few basic exercises to start training dogs for SAR work. Pet owners who just want a dog that’s easy to be around will find lots of tips and tricks, along with plenty of fun exercises to do with their animals.
