This book was written for people who feel overwhelmed, confused or
simply “turned off” by all the conflicting dog training methods
available to us today. There is so much information (created by   
people) on the subject that it is difficult to sort out who’s right,  who’s
wrong, what works and what does not work.

I have designed this simple book to touch on the basic things that apply
to all dogs and their owners, because it’s not my way, its nature’s way,
a sensible, universal place to start regardless of what kind of dog or
puppy you have because it’s recognized in their genes.

As an educator, I enjoy teaching people how to live more balanced
lives with their pets, because I believe dogs are meant to be in our
lives as stress reducers, not stress producers. People should have a
pet to enjoy them not to annoy them. If your dog is causing you stress,
chances are you are doing the same to him. Who you are, and how you
interact on a daily basis with your dog, will determine what kind of
leadership style you represent and what kind of feedback your dog will
give you in return.

Good Puppy Academics incorporates the science of the mind along with
canine psychology to achieve a balance that enhances the
human/canine partnership. You will discover how pain verses pleasure;
problem solving and having the no skill no kill mentality can help you
train your dog more efficiently and humanely, because it’s not my way,
its nature’s way.
