Australian Shepherd Training: The Katz Way by Adam G. Katz is a brief overview (76 pages) to training your Australian Shepherd. Katz, a professional dog trainer with over 25 years of experience, provides a more balanced approach to training than many other trainers today. Katz’s training methods utilize both positive reinforcement and corrective action to help your dog learn and build a strong relationship. He emphasizes the importance of consistency and patience.
The book is divided into two parts: the first part provides an overview of the Australian Shepherd breed, including their temperament, history, and training needs. The second part of the book is devoted to specific training commands and exercises, from basic obedience to more advanced skills. He highlights both proven techniques and pitfalls to help you develop an effective training regimine with your dog.
The Australian Shepherd Training: The Katz Way provides a different perspective on how to effectively train your dog than many of the “food-bribe” methods that are so popular today. It is well worth a read if you are training a new puppy or struggling with behavior issues with an older dog.
Australian Shepherd Training: The Katz Way
Adam G. Katz
Australian Shepherd Training: The Katz Way shows you the same techniques, strategies and training tools used by Master Dog Trainer Adam G. Katz, the man who has taught thousands of Australian Shepherd owners how to get their dogs to listen to them, anywhere they go.
As the publisher of a dog training newsletter read by over 65,000 dog owners and having owned three dog training companies (South Bay K-9 Academy, Adam’s Las Vegas Dog Training Company and Katz Trains Dogs) the Katz Way is the method for getting maximum results with your Australian Shepherd in minimal time… using the same methods that Katz uses with his own dogs.
The Australian Shepherd is one of the most versatile and interesting of breeds. But it can also be one of the most difficult, depending on your individual dog’s temperament, bloodlines and nerves.
Australian Shepherd Training: The Katz Way details a balanced approach to training your dog. Katz has traveled the world and worked with some of the best trainers he could find. Techniques and approaches are borrowed from those who train police dogs, search and sescue dogs, guide dogs for the blind, therapy and service dogs– and anyone else who must have 100% reliability from their dog.
The Katz Way is not a “purely positive” or “cookie bribery” approach to training. Katz believes that dogs are intelligent, thinking animals. The Katz Way seeks to let your Australian Shepherd make the decision (instead of trying to restrain or bribe!) If your dog makes the right decision, he receives praise. If he makes the wrong decision, he receives a correction and then the opportunity to make the right decision.
The information in Australian Shepherd Training: The Katz Way will transform your dog into a happy, reliable and confident companion you can take anywhere and know that he will respond eagerly and joyfully.
