The Dog Trainer’s Complete Guide to a Happy, Well-behaved Pet
St. Martin's Griffin, 288 pp., 2011; $15.99

That seasoned trainer Jolanta Benal provides training guidance at once comprehensive and accessible makes this book useful.  That she manages to be hilarious in the process makes it a keeper. The Complete Guide is well organized — readers can easily locate a specific cue or problem behavior, either through the table of contents or the index. Benal’s techniques, while not groundbreaking are sure-footed and handily summarized. Her explanations clear what otherwise might be stumbling blocks — common obstacles in human-dog communication or myths about dogs’ learning styles. This sourcebook is one more way to make training sessions a good time for everyone.
