Current Titles by Steve Duno

Steve Duno's "Be the Dog" (Sterling 2008)presents a revolutionary approach to dog training based on observing what “natural” dog owners do instinctively— that is, they intuitively understand the canine mind and relate to a dog by thinking like a dog. Instead of trying to make your pooch into a proxy person, just turn yourself into a proxy dog!

All of Steve's books are available through Amazon, Borders and Barnes & Noble, or from your local independent bookstore. Steve is especially fond of Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park, Washington; so, if you happen to be in the Seattle area, please drop by!
