And, her cat training book, Cat Training in 10 Minutes, won the Muse Medallion for best training book of the year (in 2003) and resided on the best seller lists of pet books for over a decade. As a professional pet trainer, Miriam Fields has designed her own positive, humane training methods, along with training tools, to ensure your dog can learns to focus on you, while also enjoying the training process. These training tools give you the means to gently redirect your dog's attention, and focus, without having to use any restraint or heavy muscle work. A large dog who is reactive is easily redirected and quickly calmed, returning to the learning process in seconds. An untrained dog quickly learns how to perform appropriate behavior patterns, while extinguishing inappropriate behaviors. All without using constant punishment or assertive training techniques!
Throughout her career, Miriam Fields has published more work about pets than most other pet trainers worldwide. She knows her subject matter so well that she often jokes that she has a pet encyclopedia in her head. Many other professional trainers have learned their craft by reading her published work. Countless pet owners learn how to communicate with, and train, their own pets by using her methods and, if lucky enough, working with her directly via her facility, Shady Mountain Pet Retreat.
She has put together a training system to aid you in your endeavors to teach your dog how to focus and learn. These training tools also help you understand how to approach training your dog using positive techniques. Through reading her book Click and Easy: Clicker Training for Dogs, you will learn these techniques. The training tools in this system give you the means of teaching your dog in a gentle manner, through redirection, praise and consistency.
