Self Help Dog Training By K9-1

On a beautiful late spring afternoon, 18 years ago, three young dog enthusiasts graduated from high school. They were very much alike, these three young men.

All had been better than average students, all were personable and all – as young graduates are – were filled with ambitious dreams for the future working with their passion… Dogs.

German Shepherd Handbook

f you want a happier, healthier and more well-behaved German Shepherd Dog, then this is going to be the most exciting message you’ll ever read…

First, let me ask you a question… Did you get the “owners manual” the day you chose your German Shepherd?

No? I’ve been in contact with many German Shepherd dog owners (and owners-to-be) over the years and I’ve realized that most actually need one! 🙂

My name is Michael Tapscott and I’ve owned several German Shepherds (even a white one once), and I have also been a volunteer with a dog rescue organization for years, so I have a lot to tell you about this wonderful breed.

As I’m sure you know, each dog breed is unique, and the German Shepherd is not an exception. The German Shepherd is among the most popular of all breeds, most likely for its loyalty and courage. But most owners don’t realize how much attention, training, love and firm guidance is needed to get their dog to develop these characteristics.

That’s why I’ve spent months and months of research, interviewing German Shepherd trainers, vets, importers, dog owners and well-known breeders to compile the complete “German Shepherd Handbook”!

Everything from how to choose the right German Shepherd and housebreak it, to the history of the breed and how to train your dog to obey your every command…

Imagine being able to get your German Shepherd to listen to you anywhere you go… Wouldn’t that be nice? What about knowing that your dog is perfectly happy and healthy because you know exactly how to exercise and feed your dog?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could teach your German Shepherd to stop biting and chewing everything in sight? Can you imagine how great you’ll feel when you know that your dog loves you as much as you love him/her?…
