Arden says to them, “Thank you for providing me with greater insight into the hearts and minds of dogs.”
Arden begins by pointing out the importance of understanding canine psychology, temperaments and a dog's learning capacity as necessary prerequisites to effective and humane training. The book contains veterinarian-approved advice on housetraining, including crate training and creating an effective schedule, socialization, with reference to handling and gentling, bite inhibition, and social skills with people and other animals.
