Book Overview

Show off your dog And let your dog show off, too

Using the secrets of professional dog trainers, this fully illustrated guide with hundreds of step-by-step photos show how to teach your pet 118 tricks and stunts. Organized from beginner level to pro, these tricks run the gamut from the kinds of things any well-behaved dog should know--fetch, paw shake, roll over--to stunts that will delight your friends and family, from dance routines to flying disc acrobatics. You'll even learn the tricks behind filmmaking with dogs to create your own movie magic and performance showstoppers. And there are benefits far beyond the wow factor. Teaching your dog tricks will not only reveal more of your dog's real personality, including hidden talents, it will also improve your pet's behavior, reinforce socialization, prevent boredom and restlessness, and instill your pet with greater confidence. And dramatically enrich the relationship the two of you already share.

   I wish I had bought this book earier!
This book is by far the best. It breaks down the tricks step by step with pictures and splits them into beginner, intermediate, movie tricks, live performance tricks, dancing, extreme stunts and more! The game teaches your dog how to turn the teaching into a fun game. I wish I had known about this book when I got my first rescue dog. The book is full of inspiring stories of other trainers working with rescue dogs. There are some basic things that everybody can do with their dogs -- including some of the basics like recall to the dog parents favorite game or trick put away your toys. There is also an appendix to the AKC program that provides more information about the AKC program for tick dogs. The book is well written and easy to follow, and has given me so much inspiration for my own dogs and their ongoing training, said Ms. Cowger.
   Buy it!
What she can do is spin and twist, circle and around, shake and paw, drop and stay, she said. This book makes it so easy to learn, said Mrs. Goin. Brand new York is probably going to have a few more people buy guns, Taylor said. It's just make sure your consistent and practice are paying off.
   Best Trick Book, Better than 99% of the DVDs
Professional dog trainer and breeder, Bob D'Antonio, has had clients for over 100 years. This book is written for beginners but can be good for others as well. It is far better than any other trick book and it is even better than the majority of DVD trick books. I deal in Precision and Protection dogs but unlike many I Behavioralists and I know the Biological Trick of Canines and I synthetically use things from the Agility, Hunting Dog and Sled Dog Worlds. What I am saying is I know the canine field, and I recommend this book.
   Fun for both of us
My dog has been getting rather bored during the COVID lockdown, so I'm not going to let him out. He's a big kid, so I wanted to get him something to help me teach him fun tricks, Mrs. T. Cowger said. Even though he has some training, I don't know how to properly teach a dog, Bruno said. It's a good book, but the author has done a good job of explaining it. He already knew all the basic tricks in this book, sit, down, stay, touch, come, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Thanks to the ingenuity of JK Rowling, the Harry Potter series made many of the tricks easier to learn. But he has a good bit of wiggle room, so I've already taught him how to shake his hands. I've also taught him to'snap' ears, Mrs Hughes said. We are working on it, and we are going to play dead, Tunick said. I'm having a blast, Bruno told the judge. Freddie was also present at the meeting. Thanks to Furby, we can now bond over food, too.
   Don't believe the Title
He also criticized Gillian Flynn's book, "The Dark Knight Returns: A History of Violence Against Women." Gives you ideas for the tricks but no instructions or follow throughs. Some suggestions as to how to train things, but this book is just as bad as all the Sundance Kyra books.
   Unless your dog is young and/or extremely healthy, do not buy this book
It looks like a great book, especially if I had a very healthy dog. My dog, unfortunately, has had surgery for hip dysplasia with some arthritis so there won't be any tricks in the first section of the book. She is extremely intelligent and looks very bored at times, so I was enthusiastic that we would not have some new fun things to do together, she said. No wonder AOL lost money on the sale. He said he'll keep looking.
   Best Book I've Found for Teaching Tricks
It is fully illustrated with pictures of each trick, plus step-by-step instructions on how to perform them. The part that I liked most was that they had the requirements of each AKC trick dog title and gave the instructions on how to teach each trick. The only criticism I have is that they used medium to large dogs, Raymond said. I have Corgis, a medium-sized dog with short legs who can't do some of the tricks. There are still loads of useful information about dogs available on the Internet. It has sound training information, too. This book is a must-have for your canine library.
It's a great book, I have several other trick books but this is my favorite. Like the layout of the book, I'm not a huge fan of the cover. Just follow the instructions on the next page. Each week I pick a new trick to try out with my dog.
   A great book for beginners and old timers
I've read all the books, but this is by far the best. It shows some incredible tricks and some great illustrations, too. I don't consider myself to be a pro nor a beginner. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn the different stunts and commands. They say you can't teach an old dog any tricks, but this old dog learned a lot from following the different commands in this book.
   good pix and description
Good pictures of the kids helped me with the trick, he said. I haven't all the tricks out yet, but there are plenty of beginning types to check pro tricks. I am very excited to be working with my dog, Bruno, and having great fun, Bruno said. A total of 19 people were killed in the attacks, the Web site said.
