about

When the first volume of The Dog Trainer’s Resource was published in 2007, it became a resounding success among professional dog trainers and behaviorists. It also introduced a new generation of dog trainers to the profession and started them on the road to success with information from experts in the field. This new volume, The Dog Trainer’s Resource 2, contains more cutting edge information collected from dog training’s most influential magazine, The APDT Chronicle of the Dog, published by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. Subjects covered in this book range from puppy training and socialization to working with veterinarians and how to run the business end of the leash. A special emphasis in this volume is on behavior problems including how to diagnose problem behaviors, training, and management strategies. It includes detailed case studies that give the reader insights from experts. Both new and seasoned dog trainers will benefit from the 73 articles written by 43 authors.

What reviewers are saying...

MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
“Dog Training is a lucrative business, and "The Dog Trainer's Resource 2: The APDT Chronicle of the Dog Collection" is a solid reference for dog trainers who want an encyclopedia reference available for them. With theories touching upon dog psychology, socialization, and more, it also touches on the business model suggestions for this business. With additional asides on training not just the dog, but the dog owner, "The Dog Trainer's Resource 2" is a must for any dog trainer looking to turn it into business.” James A. Cox

BARK MAGAZINE
“Learn from the best! Dense with cutting-edge information from experts in their respective fields, this collection was gleaned from the APDT Chronicle of the Dog, and everyone from newcomers to the dog world to those who are long time residents will find something of interest between its covers. Curious about dogs’ physical and emotional health, developing a dog-training business, or the theories behind current thinking on training and behavior? Is so, you’ll find good information here. As a bonus, this edition includes a detailed bibliography, an aid to your own exploration of the research.” Jo Haraf

DOG WORLD
“The Dog Trainer’s Resource 2, a follow-up to a 2007 collection of articles from the APDT’s Chronicle of the Dog, presents innovative information on topics ranging from new theories in puppy socialization to the role of medications in behavior therapy. Each chapter features articles by authorities, such as the well-known positive reinforcement expert Ian Dunbar, PhD, certified professional dog trainer, and Jim Barry, known for gundog training and ethics. Readers may not totally agree with all the opinions, theories and methodologies presented, but the material is thought-provoking. In the article, “Sibling Rivalry,” author and trainer Daphne Robert-Hamilton explores factors that exacerbate dog-to-dog aggression in a household… As Robert-Hamilton notes, dog training is rife with controversy, and The Dog Trainer’s Resource 2 attempts to present a balance of alternate views. For instance, an article on behavior-modifying drugs is followed by an article on using Bach flower essences in behavior-modification therapy. Readers should not expect the comprehensive presentation they would find in a manual or textbook. Nor is the material intended for novices. Familiarity with behavior, psychology, and terminology are essential to fully appreciate the content. Each article is well-referenced to facilitate additional research. This is the kind of book you may want to read.” Amy Fernandez
