ADVICE FROM "DOC" LOMBARD:
Love to learn dog training insights from the pros? We are pleased to offer as an
extra feature an article by Nancy Cowan on sled dog training ideas from Roland
"Doc" Lombard, one of the most famous sled dog racers of all time. Nancy draws
on the content of her new book, The Training and Racing Journals of Roland and Louise
Lombard," for an example or two of how Doc approached training challenges and dog
psychology. The article is published online in our Racing Siberian Husky Online section.

PUPPY SCHOOL: Everything you need to know to raise the perfect pup
By Maggie Holt & Stella Sweeting
The two authors of this new book together have more than 40
years of experience in dog training athletes, and the book uses a very appealing approach
filled with photographs. You have the opportunity to see exactly how a dog can be trained
for a specific skill or activitity. Often that skill is illustrated with three or four
photos, so you see each step along the way.
Dog behaviors addressed including such
things as bite inhibition and the command "watch me" to increase your dog's
attentiveness. There is emphasis on teaching dogs the right cue commands. For beginning
owners, there are the basics including getting your puppy used to being touched from head
to tail. Even long-time dog owners and trainers will find the book of interest, and
may find it a good book to recommend to new puppy owners.
