    I bought this book when I brought home my boxer puppy. I started using these techniques right away and was amazed at how quickly he began to learn. My dog is now 13 weeks old and has mastered many of the tricks found in this book. The "long down" has been especially useful in teaching my energetic boxer to stay and obey commands. If you will take the time to practice, you WILL see results.
