I posted this yesterday in the "Cockers, cockers, cockers" section, but also wanted to post it in the regular "Training" section and in the "Therapy, Assistance and Service" section (it's really that good!) for those who may only read certain sections of the forum. I feel that the book, website, and PBS program have a lot to offer to every dog owner in the way of training, relating to, and bonding with their dog. I have no connection with any part of this other than being excited by what is being offered in the way of new ideas of how we view, understand, and work with our dogs.

Anyone with a dog will benefit from this book, but it is especially good for those who have a closer than what's considered a "normal" relationship with their dog.

There is also a wonderful website: http://www.throughadogseyes.com and a PBS full length special about the training and placement of some remarkable dogs: http://video.pbs.org/video/1475527358

I was especially pleased to see that the training method I have been using with my dogs not only has a name, "Choice Training," but also is the method used to train and bond with these service dogs.

Thanks Cindy! That's very interesting stuff. The trainer I work with for my pups used a smattering of that with Cody and I didn't realize it was a training method beyond the little we did with him. Cody is especially sensitive and the usual "NO!" - pop collar training was too much for him. She incorporated some of the choice training with the verbal corrections and it made it much nicer for my sweet boy.
