Gone are the leash "pop" and harsher corrections of earlier obedience methods. Nonviolent dog training shapes appropriate behavior with rewards such as food and games. Incorrect behavior is punished by ignoring the dog and by verbal cues.
There are chapters on clicker training, target stick training, and training gear, such as collars and leashes; the nine ingredients of canine optimum health (diet, play, socialization, quiet time, exercise, employment, rest, training, and healthcare); and human-canine communication.

"great for beginners or to refresh memory"
This is an audio book for those who are trying to train a dog for the first time or those who have experience with dogs but need updating or refreshing. I have tried most of the techniques with great success over the past two months. I would recommend to anyone.
"Loved this book"
I could have done without the yoga part but the rest of the book is great. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a dog or is considering getting one.
