by Dani Weinberg
This book is about the dog-training instructor's first job: teaching people. Our human students require much more attention and understanding than do their canines. If we don't inspire their interest and cooperation, they will not be successful in training their dogs. It offers insights, information, and ideas to help you work more effectively with your human students. It urges you to engage your intelligence and curiosity and courage to try some of these ideas in your own classes and private lessons. It will help you open your mind to new ideas, consider other views, and explore new possibilities in your instructing. And if you are training your own dog, it will enhance your efforts by suggesting new ways to think about the teaching and learning process.
Dani's experiences will help all levels of instructors both develop and maintain dog training enthusiasm!
