Short Synopsis
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Loved Dog comes a groundbreaking thirty-day plan for training dogs—young or old—to become housebroken, happy, and well-behaved within one month.

Full Synopsis
Widely regarded as the anti-Cesar Millan by dog owners and experts, Tamar Geller's nonaggressive approach to dog training is based on love, play, and mutual respect between dog and owner—much like how a wolf plays with its young. Using a combination of child psychology and animal behavior science, Geller revolutionized the way Americans train their dogs and has won the approval of the Humane Society, for which she is a longtime adviser. Now she expands on her play-training methods and offers a day-by-day, easy-to-follow plan for raising a happy and well-mannered canine.

In this step-by-step guide, Geller gives dog owners all the essential training instructions, insights, and tips, including housebreaking, socialization, commands, hand signals, games, developing a routine, and much more.

Throughout, Geller explains theories on how dogs think and breaks down dogs' basic needs in simple yet engaging language. She also makes fascinating connections between raising a puppy and the process of nurturing a toddler that will shed new light on dog training. Whether it's a new puppy from the pet store or a rescue dog from the pound, this is the ultimate go-to reference for anyone who decides to bring a new dog into their home—or improve the behavior of the family dog in just one month. Turns out, you can teach an old dog new tricks!

"The Loved Dog method is nothing short of a revolution. Tamar Geller shows us a pathway beyond punishment, and reminds us that understanding and respect are the key words in dog training in the twenty-first century. Now these common-sense and humane principles are set out clearly in a single, accessible volume." ---Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO, The Humane Society of the United States

"A good introduction to Geller's methods and messages of positive, playful coaching for all dog owners." ---Library Journal
