In the Main Floor section, Terry discusses training basic obedience behaviors. This is an area that has fallen down in the last 10-15 years. Trainers have started focusing on relationship issues and socialization to the detriment of obedience. Of course, relationship and socialization are crucial, but so is obedience, and we need to bring obedience back into the equation. This will be the mark of a \"good\" trainer in the future - being able to help owners have a well-rounded dog. In this section, Terry gives great information on how to actually train a dog - she covers acquisition, fluency and generalization in step-by-step format and even throws in a few games to make it fun!
