In the world of mobile phones and e-mail, where communication is available at the touch of a button, are we leaving man's best friend in the dog house? The modern dog has more frustration, is more sheltered and has less freedom than his ancestor and it is becoming alarmingly clear that we are in danger of losing our ability to understand and communicate with our canine friends at the most basic level. If you have ever wanted to know what makes your dog tick, why he acts the way he does, how to change the way he behaves or how to commumicate and train him to a standard that you might not dreamed possible then The Dog Vinci Code will get you back on track. The essential manual for any dog owner, John Rogerson outlines, step by step, training techniques so simple that even your dog can understand what you are trying to teach him. This book is about learning how to communicate with your dog on an emotional level, which will in turn give him the ability to understand everyone in your family. By understanding 'the code', you will gain more control over your dog and thereby be able to offer him more freedom and less frustration than ever before, making for a more contented family companion. John has devoted his lifetime to the study of dogs and their owners and has gained a unique insight into the workings of the canine mind. John should need no introduction to anyone currently engaged in the study of canine behaviour and training as he is one of the world's most sought after speakers on the subject.
