    Don't know if this helps, as the book itself is more expensive, but they seemed to have better shipping costs... Wag School Books

    EDIT: I haven't bought from them, so can't recommend, just found them when I was investigating the book too.

    Hint... if clean run's postage seems over the top - it's because they use a wine carton sized box for small things like a book or a tug toy...

    But you can email them and ask them if they can get the postage for what you want to be cheaper.

    I just wait until the stuff is on free shipping...

    LAT and BAT

    LAT - is "Look at That" (not look at me)

    BAT - is behaviour adjustment training.

    So for a very exciting distraction over there - get sufficient distance your dog can still pay attention to you, then point out the exciting thing "Look at That!", and the dog looks - and if the dog remains calm and looks back at you - then reward.

    If the dog gets uber excited DO NOT USE TREATS to lure back attention. Or you will get a dog that gets really excited when the lawn mower man shows up and will happily nip him too.

    The dog only gets a treat if they can remain calm - sitting - no pulling. If they can't - you're too close and you need to move further away.

    The book goes into a lot more detail about how to get it right, and various ways to calm the dog down. Which I needed.

    It also covers quite a few other foundation and relationship building exercises to help your dog to listen and do what you want them to.
