“If we are the most intelligent creatures on Earth, why do we try to make our domesticated animals understand our
language, instead of us understanding theirs?”
From the paddocks of New Zealand and Scotland to the untamed hilltops of Ethiopia and the valleys of Alaska, Stuart Barnes has tracked, observed and trained dogs all over the world for over 25 years. In this book he shares his incredible insights to help us all learn to communicate with our canines on the level they understand.
The Way of the Dog will give you a better understanding of why dogs behave the way they do, as well as straightforward, easy-to-follow techniques on how to correct many unwanted behaviours.
With clear, step-by-step instructions, this book will help you with all the essential aspects of owning and training a dog, including choosing and raising a puppy or an older dog, housetraining, effective walk routines, mealtimes, playtime and boundaries. With Stuart's help, you can unlock the secrets to building the long and happy relationship with your canine companion that both you and your dog deserve.
