First of all, this book is a wonderful format as a training guide as well as the inside scoop on how trainers get dogs to do all those amazing things that you see on film. The guide is full of simple things that actually work! I tried several of these with my dachshund and I actually got her to do quite a few with the methods in this book. She can now belly crawl, but then again for a low to the ground dog, that is not so hard. I don't know if she is ready for her close up yet, but I am going to keep trying.
