Topics include: can a small dog be competitive, puppy and pre-training, training plan and philosophy, equipment, heeling for handler and dog, sit, down, stay, recall, finish, stands, retrieve, jumps, signals, drop on recall, directed retrieve, scent discrimination, handling. Authors train Papillons.
