Synopsis

My First Dog Book Teach Your Dog to be Happy and Confident: Training, Playing, Grooming, Feeding by Dawn Bates

Your dog will become a great playmate but first you need to learn how to look after him. In `Caring For Your Dog,' discover the essentials of dog care, from exercising and feeding to keeping him safe when you're out and about. Chapter 2, `Good Dog,' covers all the basic training techniques, with easy step-by-step instructions, from sit, down, and stay to walking to heel on the lead. Find out how to read your dog's body language and help him behave well around people and other dogs. Once you've mastered all the basic training techniques, `Clever Dog,' shows you how to teach your dog some skilful tricks. Impress your friends by getting your dog to roll over, wave, or give a high-five with one simple command from you! In Chapter 4, `Fun and Games,' there are ideas for great activities to enjoy together such as Hide and Seek, Find the Treat and Tug of War.
