This book was written for people who feel overwhelmed, confused, or simply “turned off” by all the conflicting dog training methods available to us today. There is so much information (created by people) on the subject that it is difficult to sort out who’s right, who’s wrong, what works, and what doesn’t work. I have designed this simple book to touch on the basic things that apply to all dogs and their owners because it’s not my way, it’s nature’s way—a sensible, universal place to start regardless of what kind of dog or puppy you have because it’s encoded in their genes.
As an educator, I enjoy teaching people how to live more balanced lives with their pets because I believe dogs are meant to be in our lives as stress reducers, not stress producers. People should have a pet to enjoy them, not to annoy them. If your dog is causing you stress, chances are you are doing the same to him. Who you are and how you interact on a daily basis with your dog will determine what kind of leadership style you represent and what kind of feedback your dog will give you in return.
Good Puppy Academics incorporates the science of the mind along with canine psychology to achieve a balance that enhances the human and canine partnership. You will discover how pain versus pleasure, problem-solving and having the no skill no kill mentality can help you to tap into your dog’s primal intelligence and train your dog more efficiently and humanely because it’s not my way, it’s nature’s way.
