Imagine a dog who listens to you, comes to you, follows you, and looks to you for guidance. Imagine a dog who adapts to your lifestyle -- quickly, successfully and without time-consuming practice. This ideal relationship is possible with the techniques of veteran trainer Paul Loeb, whose groundbreaking theories and humane, holistic teaching style will help you learn to teach, care for'''''''' and understand your dog...in just a few hours

Paul Loeb's lifelong passion for animals -- and his desire to communicate with them -- has brought him four decades of leadership in the field of animal behavior. His philosophy is revolutionary but simple: your dog can learn more -- and more quickly -- if information is delivered properly. Now you can reach a new level of communication with your dog, and get visible results in approximately three hours. Paul Loeb's techniques are geared to respect your dog's ability to learn complex behaviors. Not only will you find step-by-step methods to teach housebreaking, paper training, and the basic commands, but you'll also discover:

Why one-word commands, including "No, " are ineffective Why gimmicks like water pistols or pennies in a can don't really work Why food rewards and choke chains are "not" good training tools Why "crating" is unnecessary and can jeopardize your dog's life in an emergency Why teaching your dog to come to you is essential -- and teaching your dog to sit is not How to adapt your dog's behavior to your lifestyle -- whether you need your dog to walk without a leash, ride politely in a car, sit near the dinner table without begging, never jump up, remain on your property...or do just about anything else you can imagine

Thiscomplete guide also tackles problem behaviors like barking, bolting out the door, aggression and biting. And Paul Loeb reveals an alternative to commercial dog-food diets that can enhance your pet's behavior and health.

Now you can have the well-behaved dog you've always wanted -- and your dog will have an owner who understands his or her language. With "Smarter Than You Think," you and your dog can share the special bond of true understanding.
