“Hands-off” training means teaching just that—without force or confrontation—and having some fun along the way, too. It is designed to ensure that you have mind control over your dog—not just physical control. Most of all, your dog should love it!
Much talk about dogs these days revolves around rank—leadership, the “pack structure,” dominance and social hierarchies. However, contrary to popular belief, dogs are NOT trying to challenge you for leadership or take over the world, they are just doing what comes naturally—and what feels good!
This booklet is designed to help you teach your dog or puppy the basics for everyday living.
