 PAMPHLETS -ALL BREEDS

Many of these are available in two formats: Either for owners of bird dogs, or for general purposes. Please specify the pamphlet number when you place your order. Page lengths vary according to subject matter. Each pamphlet is $3.95.

P501 -- Housebreaking Your Dog - Once you know when dogs relieve themselves, and why, you can housetrain your pup or adult dog in as little as three days. You'll even be able to teach him to "go" on command. You'll be amazed at your own success.

P504 -- Three Ways to Teach Commands Without a Chokechain - You can teach your dog its basic, stationary commands (sit, lie down, and whoa or stand) without ever having to use a choke-chain or pinch collar. These methods take all the stress out of teaching your dog these important basics. (Covered in Your Baby and Bowser and M301 - Command-Train Your Dog to Performance Levels.)

P505 -- Proper Use of the Chokechain – If  you insist on using a chokechain in dog training – not recommended by the author -- the techniques described will guide you in the principles of "escape/avoidance" training rather than punishment. The pamphlet also explains why the leash should remain loose at all times except when the dog yanks his own chain

 P506 -- How to Use Treats in Training - Using treats as positive reinforcers in training your dog can be one of the most highly effective ways to help your dog learn. This publication shows you when and how to use them, and how to phase them out so your dog doesn't become dependent on them.

 P507 -- You Can Change Your Dog's Disposition - Change the demeanor of an overly bold dog or an overly shy dog just by the way you pet its ears, tail, mouth, and so on? Yes, when you follow the guidelines shown. Based upon the proven, behaviorally sound principles incorporated into all Starfire's work. Special emphasis on the timid dog: Simply reverse the process for overly bold dogs. (Covered in M302 - Speak Your Dog's Language.)

 P508 -- How to Have a Behavior-Balanced Litter - Follow the instructions offered here and you won't have any extremes of behavior in your entire litter of puppies. Minutes a day are all you need to give your pups so your customers will have the kinds of dogs they will be pleased to raise. (Covered in M302 - Speak Your Dog's Language.)

 P509 -- Using Rapport Skills™ to Establish Leadership - Now you can learn to take charge of your dog by using human approximations of the most essential signals dogs use among their own kind to establish or maintain leadership. These interactions produce remarkable results even in difficult situations. (Covered in Your Baby and Bowser, and M306 - How to Be A Dog’s Leader.)

 P511 -- Correcting Minor Behavior Problems - Does your dog nudge to be petted, bark to be let out, or do anything else you'd like to change without having to go through a major program? Here are three ways you can correct minor behaviors you don't like and you never have to touch a chokechain. (Covered in Your Baby and Bowser.)

 P512 -- Separation Anxiety - Latch-Key Dogs - If your dog is left alone hours at a time and is carrying out destructive, or other undesirable behaviors while you're away, the dog is most likely experiencing separation anxiety. Simply put, he doesn't know how to be successful when left alone. This pamphlet helps you understand your dog's response to being "abandoned" by its "pack" and provides you with a behaviorally sound approach to eliminating the problem.

 P513 -- Sniffing Stuff - Does your dog spend its time sniffing anything in sight (or scent)? Would you rather have him stop and come to you on command? If so, this pamphlet may be just what you need. Discover the reasons behind this behavior and follow the step-by-step program provided for your success.

 P516 -- Play Training for Results - If your dog doesn’t respond well to routine training methods, you may want to consider this pamphlet. It’s called “Play Training” because it’s pleasurable for the dog: However, “motivational training” might be more accurate. In either case, it will help you produce results in dogs that need that extra encouragement when starting a training program.

 P518 -- A Dog’s Zones - The way a dog responds to things, people, or other animals is often governed by distance from the object or individual. This pamphlet discusses the study of zones or “proxemics” and describes the comfort levels of dogs and humans as distance either increases or decreases, and explains how we are likely to react.

 P519 – What is a Yawn? – Fads, superstitions, and urban legends are set aside and disproven in this simple pamphlet. Finally, a logical explanation of what yawning really is and why it occurs – in humans as well as in dogs. These two pages are based upon years of study of the research in this field.
