Teamwork, Book 1, Revised & Expanded Edition

The hope is that more and more people with disabilities will realize that they can share the companionship and joy of owning a dog, and with a little work and dedication, they can learn how to make that dog a better behaved friend and companion. They don’t have to rely on someone else to do it for them, they don’t have to forego the pleasure of canine company. It is all within their grasp. The end result of Teamwork is TEAM-a person and dog who understand one another and bond strongly together. TEAMWORK concentrates on understanding your dog and learning to teach basic obedience exercises, such as sit, down, come and heel. Each exercise is explained clearly, step by step, and includes tips for people on crutches, in manual wheelchairs or power chairs. Praise and food reward are explained and emphasized. Equipment is discussed so that the novice trainer will have a better idea of what’s available.

While some suggestions may not work for every dog or every person, the book gives you ideas of where to start and encourages you to do what works. Before I read this book I was a little overwhelmed that I was unable to…
