51 Puppy Tricks gives puppy owners the tools they need to teach behaviors and tricks to their puppy through step-by-step instructions and photographs. Most other puppy training books focus on curbing bad behavior. Some have training, but only the most basic tricks. Kyra's curriculum differs from that of 101 Dog Tricks in that the instructions are geared for the less mature dog. Young puppies are not yet well-tuned to humans, and respond better to a clicker than to a voice. Also, young puppies have so few skills that everyone benefits from a technique called "shaping" which breaks a behavior into minute steps for easier learning. And, of course, puppies receive extra gentle care when we teach, focused more on instilling a love of learning and a communication pathway rather than accomplishing the goal behavior.

Great resource for 51 quick and easy tricks to teach your puppy. I love its color photo illustrations, very informative and visual. The book also provides verbal clues, hand commands, tips, and thoughts on how to address common problems specific to each trick. Although using a clicker could help speed up the process a little faster, I didn't use one for my training sessions. Wonderful book overall.
