Description from the dust jacket: "Dog Training Made Easy" is written for the average dog owner who wants his dog well trained but has no particular interest in making a show dog of his pet. Out of his long experience as both dog expert and writer, Mr. Duncan has written one of the most practical and useful books in its field.
The book begins by discussing what breed best fits your purse and personality. Then it helps you to select a pup, with tips on the tricks sometimes worked on the cocksure buyer. It guides you from the time the pup arrives, car-sick and bewildered, at his new home, until he is a perfect canine gentleman. Such subjects as: the first meal, the matter of bedding, house-breaking, motor manners, the chronic barker, chicken killers, training for simple Obedience Tests - are discussed in easy, friendly fashion and with the authority of Mr. Duncan's vast experience.
The late Wm. Cary Duncan was dog editor of "Outdoor Life", director of the American Kennel Club, a breeder of setters, judge in many leading dog shows, lifelong dog trainer and sportsman.
