10-Minute Obedience reflects Amy Dahl's belief that daily 10-minute training sessions best suit a dog's attention span and lead to rapid learning. This book is easy to use for the absolute beginner and yet deeply informative for those who have covered basic training and now want to make their dog as well trained as possible. This book has the information most needed by the owner of a pet dog: how to make him reliably obedient and well-mannered. The emphasis of this training method is on obtaining necessary control and good manners while maximizing your dog's enthusiasm by establishing training situations where your dog wants to cooperate. Addressing puppy raising, manners, and management issues in addition to formal training, this book shows you how to have fun and have success with your dog.

Each section of this book is accompanied by Dahl's real-life accounts of individual dogs to illustrate key training concepts while emphasizing the uniqueness of individual dogs.
