Sit Stay Fetch is one among the more popular dog training products on the web and for good reason. The 186 page book is broken down into different sections, every one coping with a distinct aspect of dog ownership. Each section is broken down into 5 or 6 subsections and a review of that specific section. The review is especially nice because it condenses the essential points of every section onto one page for simple reference. That is to not say that skipping to the top of every section is the perfect technique to utilize this book. There may be a wealth of data contained in each section in addition to case studies for particular doggy problems (aggression, barking, chewing, leaping on furniture, leaping on people, etc.)
The initial chapters are mainly for people considering a dog or who’ve recently obtained a puppy. These chapters deal with points comparable to selecting a breed, responsible ownership, canine growth stages, and selecting your vet. The third chapter is where the dog training begins. The kinds of training are outlined in addition to some secrets to training a dog. Crate training can be discussed on this area as well. For individuals who have already got dogs, the primary three chapters don’t really provide a whole lot of pertinent information; nevertheless, for somebody seeking to get a dog, these chapters are invaluable.
The fourth chapter gives insight into how dogs use their senses and the way their body language gives an insight into their feelings and attitudes. I discovered it interesting you could dog’s are very expressive and their moods are sometimes ignored by their owners. This chapter also covers how dogs communicate with each other in addition to the similarities between wolves and dogs.
Of the remaining chapters, two are dedicated to dog problems, two are dedicated to teaching commands, and one deals with the positives and negatives of dog whispering. The 2 chapters coping with problems are two of the longest chapters within the book. The primary chapter on dog problems deals with behaviors comparable to aggression, biting, chewing, digging, and barking. Case studies are supplied with most of the issues to point out why a dog could also be exhibiting these problems. The second chapter on dog problems deals with allergies, fleas, chasing cars, and jumping on people. Again, relevant examples are supplied with each section to further illustrate the difficulty at hand.
The chapters coping with dog commands are divided into basic or starting commands and advanced commands. A number of the basic commands include “Come”, “Sit”, “Down”, “Heel”, and “Stand.” These commands are provided in a simple to follow method and could be implemented fairly quickly with some practice. What I liked is that there is a training schedule provided to help with training the dog. The advanced commands section covers “Catch,” “Fetch”, “Shake”, and “Rollover.” Based on my experience, a few of these commands are tougher than others to coach a dog on and it is not really helpful that teaching these commands begins until the dog is over 6 months old and has mastered the fundamental commands from the sooner chapter.
Sit Stay Fetch is a superb product that touches on a whole lot of ignored points of owning a dog. Even some lower than common problems are discussed and suggestions are given on address these problems. I discovered this book to be specified by a logical manner with the training points occupying a majority of the pages, but with other areas comparable to body language and sense getting a superb deal of coverage as well. The creator also does a superb job of supporting the product by providing a free newsletter that incorporates more suggestions for solving dog problems. Granted, you don’t want to read every chapter with the intention to address a specific problem, but it surely is sweet to see that a nearly every common dog problem is addressed.
