Line Training for Dogs
Unless they're on a lead, many dogs refuse to come back to their owners, and simply do as they please. Dogs like these commonly spend their lives on leads that are much too short, so are unable to enjoy the privilege of running free in meadows and fields, because they haven't learned to take notice of their owners and come back on call or whistle. The advice that's often given to anyone who owns a dog like this is to give line training a try, but not many people know how it's done. This is the first book published on this subject and provides step-by-step guidance on how to perform successful line training with your dog. Monika Gutmann runs the Modern Dogs school together with her husband in the Allgäu region of Germany, where she focuses on training puppies and young dogs, clicker training, recall and discouraging hunting behaviour. She has successfully trained all kinds of dogs on tracking leads over many years and has developed a step by step dog-training programme that dog-owners everywhere can follow.
