What reviewers are saying...

DOG WORLD
“Ronchette’s instruction manual is derived from two decades experience as a professional trainer. In addition to conformation, she competes in several performance events. In all of these, she utilizes positive techniques such as luring, shaping, targeting, and clicker training that have become staple tools of so much training methodology. The book covers all the basics of choosing leads, using bait, free stacking, hand stacking, and gaiting. Each one is carefully explained and readers are guided through their application. The author provides abundant suggestions to deal with common frustrations such as dogs that hate table exams or persistently sit down in the ring. There is no shortage of advice on socializing puppies, keeping your dog calm, and reinforcing a positive attitude. She also explains the use of desensitization and counter-conditioning to revise problem behaviors… The book is presented as a guide for both novice and expert but confines its scope to the basics. Overall, it’s a valuable guide for beginners and handlers interested in repurposing positive training techniques to a new sport.” Amy Fernandez
