10-Minute Obedience reflects the author's belief that daily ten-minute training sessions best suit a dog's attention span and lead to rapid learning. This book is easy to use for the absolute beginner and yet deeply informative for those who have covered basic training and now want to make their dog as well trained as possible. The text has the information most needed by the owner of a pet dog: how to make it reliably obedient and well-mannered.
