Patricia McConnell believes that play is THE topic in dog training right now and while play is supposed to be fun, don't be fooled into thinking it's just goofy or frivolous. She says that "play is powerful stuff, and it has a profound influence on your relationship with your dog."
This engagingly written booklet shows how play can improve your dog's responsiveness, and provide your dog with the mental and physical exercise they need. Inside is up-to-date research on how to tell your dog you want to play (most of us aren't very good at it!), some (non-offensive) charming tricks and games to wow your friends, and an important section on how NOT to play with your dog. If you'd like a happier, more responsive dog and a closer relationship with each other, than this booklet is for you.
