Imagine a dog who listens to you, comes to you, follows you, and looks to you for guidance. This ideal relationship is possible with the techniques of veteran trainer Paul Loeb. His revolutionary philosophy is simple: your dog can learn more -- and more quickly -- if information is delivered properly. Loeb's groundbreaking theories and humane, holistic teaching style will get visible results in approximately three hours. Not only will you find step-by-step methods to teach housebreaking, paper training, and the basic commands, but you'll also discover:
• Why one-word commands, including "No," are ineffective
• Why food rewards and choke chains are not good training tools
• Why teaching your dog to come to you is essential -- and teaching your dog to sit is not
• How to adapt your dog's behavior to your lifestyle -- whether you need your dog to walk without a leash, ride politely in a car, remain on your property...or do just about anything else you can imagine!
Now you can have the well-behaved dog you've always wanted -- and your dog will have an owner who understands his or her language.
With Smarter Than You Think, you and your dog can share the special bond of true understanding.

Essential Book for Dog Owners
This is absolutely the best book ever written for training you (and your dog) to have the relationship you've always wanted.
By the way, I don't know the author and no one is paying me to write this review. It's just that this book helped me to understand my dog in ways that I never would have imagined.
I know how frustrating it can be to train a dog, and how sometimes you just want to give up, even though you love your dog and want the best for him/her.
