KIRKUS REVIEW

A sound and thorough guide for the novice handler on the Obedience Show circuit specifically and for the hopeful home trainer in general, by a top handler whose German Shepherds have consistently earned their Phi Betas in American rings. Before introducing the dog owner to the AKC Obedience curriculum, Mrs. Strickland, after general tips on selection and care, sets out a regimen of training for the house dog, and imaginatively, delightfully, relates such old chestnuts as ""Shaking Hands"", ""Rolling Over,"" to future formal Obedience work. Then follows a step-by-step manual for all phases of show training from Novice Exercises to Advanced Tracking.
