Most dog owners tend to think of games as the reward that comes after a training session with their pet. But there's no need to separate play and work-play makes a terrific training tool if you just know which games to pick. Fun Games for a Smarter Dog offers dozens of options to help you build your bond wth your dog, work on his obedience, boost his thinking skills, and ramp up his fitness levels. It's tailored to suit different canine personalities so that you can pick and choose between appropriate activities, and it explains the benefits your dog will get from every trick or game you teach. It covers the rules of dog/dog play, too, and, best of all, it ensures that your pet will be having so much fun that he'll never even know he's been taking classes.
