Positive Training for Show Dogs by Vicki Ronchette

Train your dog to love showing!
Most people learn how train their show dog by trial and error—emphasis on “error.” Much of the information about show dog training is learned by ringside observation or word-of-mouth from experienced exhibitor to novice. The results are mixed—some things work well, while others don’t—and you may not know why! 

Positive Training for Show Dog is the first book to apply the latest scientific research on how dogs learn to the world of dog showing. Whether you are just getting started in the breed ring or are an experienced show dog handler, you will enjoy learning how to work with your dog as your partner to get outstanding showing results by using positive reinforcement without punishment. 

What you will learn 
• How to crossover from correction-based training to reward-based training.
• The role of the clicker and other reward markers in your training and problem solving. 
• Methods for key show ring skills like gaiting, stacking, and standing for examination.
• Positive solutions to common show dog predicaments including fear of the judge, poor head position, picture taking problems, and more.
