The authors have gathered all the requirements for Canine Good Citizen tests around the world and presented a book that shows you how to train your dog to pass each of them. Each skill is taught step by step, accompanied by instructive photos. While readers have the fun of setting a goal for their training (to pass a local Canine Good Citizen test, or to have all the skills to pass every CGC test in the world), they also get clear instructions on all the lifestyle training any dog will ever need. The book includes a section on how dogs learn, and why having a mannerly, well-trained dog is important.David and Ruth Weston are professional dog trainers and founding members of the Kintala Club in Australia. They are the authors of the highly successful Dog Training: The Gentle Modern Method and Dog Problems: The Gentle Modern Cure (both from Howell).
