SUPERSTAR DOGS: Easy Tricks

JULIE TOTTMAN    Book Number: 89078    Product format: Hardback

Lassie. Toto. Marley. If your canine companion has potential to be a superstar on screen and join this line up, the tips in this book will offer the best route to teaching your dog new tricks. Julie Tottman is a movie animal trainer who was head puppy trainer on 102 Dalmatians and the proud owner of Yorkshire terrier, Pickles, whom she rescued from a puppy farm, nursed back to health and trained for the film What a Girl Wants. In this companion, the author outlines how a dog's human can teach them how to impress audiences, from basic actions such as staying, sitting and lying down on cue, to more energetic moves such as spinning, standing up and jumping up and down. Each trick includes sections on how to start and achieve the skill as well as potential tips, projected times to master the activity and a list of any specific items needed to execute the piece. Show your puppy how to cover their eyes by putting their paw on their muzzle - an advanced trick that will make any viewer coo. Learn how your dog can bow as if it is saying its prayers or, like in the film Patrick (which the author worked on), appearing to stretch as he gets out of bed. All guidance is step by step, walking you and your pet through each task in the process, whether that is speaking, with your friendly canine barking as if they are talking to another dog or person, or encouraging your dog to hold, bring and watch objects. The author includes top tips to have the most productive training time including the best time to train your dog (preferably when not tired and before a meal time), the preferred location to teach (home) and always rewarding your beloved pet by saying 'good' and then offering a treat. Loveable illustrations of dogs are included to make the reading as fun as the training, from a dog nudging a tennis ball or cocking its head, to a puppy crouched in a begging position and cocking a leg to scratch its haunch. This companion will have you and your dog ready to walk the red carpet in no time. Illustrations, 130pp.
