Training dogs is often simple and straightforward, but sometimes training their owners is a bit more of a challenge.
In this book on "people-training for dog trainers," Nicole Wilde shares advice based on years of experience as a professional dog trainer. She teaches the reader the basics of "people training," how to coach clients using positive reinforcement, and other techniques. In a humorous section, Wilde describes specific types of difficult personality types, from Angry Agnes to Unmotivated Mo, and how to deal with them. Also covered are handling students in a group class setting, working one-on-one in private lessons, and understanding and working with family dynamics. An invaluable resource for any dog trainer.
