Urban Dog: The Ultimate "Street Smarts" Training Manual

Owning a dog in the city has a completely different set of challenges than owning a dog in a rural or suburban setting. The city is full of distractions for a dog such as congestion, noise, crowds of people, cars, buses, bicycles, rollerbladers, trash, sewers, alleys, roadways and other dogs. Where you can exercise your dog is limited, and maneuvering a dog through city streets and across busy roadways is often hazardous. Rat poison sprinkled in alleyways, garbage on the sidewalk and around bins, and city puddles filled with unknown substances are all threats to any dog's health. In this book, Cis Frankel, an urban dog trainer who has trained thousand of dogs including Oprah Winfrey's cocker Spaniels, Solomon and Sophie, explains how to deal with the specific difficulties of living with a dog in the city. Believing that the best city dog is a well-trained dog, Cis explores the basics of puppy training (housebreaking, obedience, basic commands) and then delves into the particularities of training and owning a dog in the city. The informative and easy-to-access text covers collars and leash handling, navigating the streets, housebreaking in a high-rise, managing parks, crowds and roadways to create street-smart dogs, stressful situations to avoid, and health care specifics for city dogs. This one-of-a-kind book shows how to get the most out of your dog while living in the city, and how to get the most out of the city for your dog.
