You must have often heard the phrase 'alpha male' and thought it rather cool. Well, you know what? Your dog probably thinks it is cool too, and would like to be an 'alpha dog', with some help from you. And even if you do not know where to begin the dog training book can teach everything from potty training your dog to teaching it to behave well when you have company.
When you look through the list of all the wonderful things you can teach your dog to do, you would be amazed at why you did not get the dog training book before, for it is extremely useful in teaching household applications, fetching and helping you locate pests in the garden. Dogs have an adventure seeking streak in them and can be taught to bring your attention to something they find out of the ordinary. This is why they go after any little creepy crawly thing and pester its life out. They also have a strong sense of loyalty so they will make sure that no harm comes to you or your home. Based on these characteristics, it is good to teach them where to apply their 'snooping-around-skills'.
