Are you inadvertently rewarding your dog's bad behavior? Are you misinterpreting the peeing at the door? In Dog Training Diaries, lifelong dog trainer Tom Shelby captures the basic guidelines of training dogs and offers advice, strategies, and personal insight to deal with the most common problematic situations dog owners face. Harmony obstacles include:
 
  • Pulling on the leash
  • Jumping
  • Eating chair legs
  • Separation anxiety
  • Housebreaking
  • Aggression
  • And more!
Tom’s personal stories from his life as a dog trainer allow readers to journey through all dog walks of life—from mansions to suburban parking lots—as he explains how to restore the special relationship between dog and owner. Dog Training Diaries will help readers harmonize, understand, teach, and learn from their dogs—because harmony between dog and family is what it’s all about.
