When you think of your dog, what is the first characteristic that comes to mind? His "smile," his gentle companionship, his good-natured bark when he sees a friend? Or, do you immediately think of his "bad habits"—maybe his tendency to jump up on people, the "accidents" he sometimes has in the house, or the way he pulls when you go for a walk?
"Change your mind, change your dog," is one tenet of Linda Tellington-Jones' renowned Tellington Method. By thinking of your dog in "perfect" terms, you can come a long way in solving problematic behaviors, training for a joyful partnership, and ensuring his health and well-being. Add to this Linda's course in gentle bodywork, known throughout the world as Tellington TTouch, as well as specialized training equipment and the Playground for Higher Learning, and you have gentle, proven ways to improve your dog's attention, willingness, and confidence. This book, now completely revised with new photos and profiles, is the key to a better quality of life for your dog.
