Join us next Saturday, April 6th for the second meeting of the Dog-Eared Book Club. We’ll be discussing Chase! Managing Your Dog’s Predatory Instincts, by Clarissa von Reinhardt.
About The Book
Almost every dog has some degree of prey drive – it’s in his genes – some more than others. You may experience it when your otherwise well mannered dog suddenly takes off chasing after a rabbit, squirrel, or a jogger. The old approach to solving this problem involved the use of corrective devices like choke chains and electronic fences. A better approach includes training and management techniques that reward your dog for choosing to focus on you.
Clarissa von Reinhardt has been working on the issue of how to deal with unwanted predatory behavior for many years. In this fascinating and inspiring book, she takes the readers step by step through her training methods, inviting them to learn more about a dog s complex spectrum of behavior, and ultimately to maintain as much control as possible over the urge to chase prey.
