Better Together is Coming Soon

Better Together: the Collected Wisdom of Modern Dog Trainers

Hey, there’s a great new training book hitting the shelves!

Better Together: The Collected Wisdom of Modern Dog Trainers is a comprehensive collection of both practical and inspirational advice from some of the best trainers in the world. Learn the methods of modern dog training through more than 60 articles from 28 experts, specially selected by world-renowned trainer Ken Ramirez.

You can find it first at ClickerExpo this weekend (where many of us will be happy to sign it for you and your dog), or pre-order it at KPCT or Amazon. Here’s the book:

Better Together addresses the most common, the most vexing, and the most important challenges faced by pet owners today—from nuisance barking to reactivity—without the use of force or punishment. Re-imagine what your dog can learn. Whether you are a first-time dog owner or a seasoned trainer, Better Together is the indispensable guide to make both you and your dog happy, smart, and  confident.

Topics and trainers you’ll find in Better Together include:

  • Benefits of modern training—Ken Ramirez
  • Principles of modern training—Kathy Sdao
  • Getting started —Karen Pryor
  • House training—Debbie Martin
  • Polite greetings—Laura VanArendonk Baugh
  • Relaxation—Nan Arthur
  • Reactivity—Emma Parsons
  • Resource guarding—Hannah Branigan
  • and many more!

Better Together takes the reader on a journey that begins with an introduction of clicker training and the basics for puppies and all dogs. The book then progresses into more advanced concepts, with chapters on solving problems, dealing with aggressive dogs, and creating the thinking dog. I particularly like Karen Pryor’s new “Modern Principles of Training” – just one of the many highlights included in the book. I am hopeful that Better Together will be a valuable resource for trainers of all levels.” —Ken Ramirez

I’m excited to see this compiled final product!

  1. Oh, this sounds like it would be good. I have 2 dogs and one absolute refusing to train or learn anything. The other is super smart and knows a lot but I am stuck at what to try with him next.

  6. I feel very happy to read this great book. I love dogs much. This book is very helpful for dog lovers ! Thanks admin for sharing such a great book, please keep it up !

  7. This looks like a great book to have! I have been taking care of a Chihuahua named Zoe for the last couple of months. She is great and full of life and love. I realized since I have been taking care of a dog, once they know and trusts you, it is easy to train and tell tem things you want them to do or not to do. When I go out with Zoe a leash is not neccessary because I know once I call her she comes instantly. Why? Because she trusts me.
