A Training System for Raising a Great Companion & Performance Dog Book by Deborah Jones, Ph.D. & Judy Keller ©2010
A new puppy is a blank slate with endless possibilities. Anyone who has trained a dog before loves that feeling of starting fresh, believing this new puppy will be the best one ever!

The author's FOCUS program uses Fun, Obedience and Consistency leading to Unbelievable Success. In this book, they use FOCUS to present a variety of foundation exercises for your pup's first year. The book tells you exactly what skills you should be working on and when. By following each step, you and your puppy will build a wonderfully rewarding relationship that will carry over into everything you do together. 208 pages, 9" x 6.5" softcover.
