Feeling a bit outnumbered by your pack of dogs? Maybe there's a bit too much excitement at the door when visitors come to call? Or perhaps there's some tension between two of your dogs and you want to be sure it doesn't escalate. Feeling Outnumbered is designed to help with all that and more, by emphasizing fun, positive exercises that teach your dogs to be patient and polite, rather than pushy and demanding.
Included is how to teach dogs to be polite at the door, how to stop dogs from competing for your attention, the value of a 'Group Stay,'ť and much, much more. The exercises, clearly illustrated by Patricia McConnell in her own home, will be most useful if you and your dogs have a few basic signals under your belt, but whatever your stage of training expertise, this video will help anyone who loves their dogs, and wouldn't mind living with a little less canine commotion!
