Understanding dogs, what they are, and why they do the things they do, gives an insight into what makes them tick. Understanding how they are affected by the things we do enables us to train, and live with, our pets more effectively. These are the "Dog Secrets" that your dog wishes you knew. There is no mystical "secret" to training dogs, as professed by some dog trainers. Dog training and owning can be perfected through simple yet effective methods that are well known to science. Illustrated by real life examples of how they have helped others, Dog Secrets explains how understanding these methods can make you a better dog trainer and have a more rewarding relationship with your dog.
