    After reading the link you suggested I did a little more research on Ian Dunbar and I found a download off one of his websites "dogstar" It was the entire book of "After the puppy is home" I read it all neally yesterday while my daughter was at gymnastics. When we got home I tried a few of the training ideas and they all worked almost instantly. The only one we strugged with was "speak" It worked but he also jumped and snapped a little at the same time as barking.
