About the Authors

Jack and Wendy Volhard share their home with two Labrador Retrievers, a Landseer Newfoundland, three Standard Wirehaired Dachshunds, and one cat. The dogs are more or less well-trained, depending on who you ask, and the cat does his own thing. All are allowed on the furniture, but do get off when told. The Volhards are true practitioners — they have obtained more than 50 conformation and performance titles with their dogs.

Through their classes, lectures, seminars and training camps in the United States, Canada, and England, the Volhards have taught countless owners how to communicate more effectively with their pets. Individuals from almost every state and 15 countries have attended their training camps. Veterinarians, breeders, trainers, and dog owners like you, regularly consult them on questions about behavior, heath, nutrition, and training. Internationally recognized as "trainers of trainers," they're also award-winning authors, and their books have been translated into three languages. This is their ninth book.

In addition to their work together, both Jack and Wendy are well recognized in the training community for their individual accomplishments.

Jack is the recipient of five awards from the Dog Writers' Association of America (DWAA) and an American Kennel Club obedience judge for 30 years. He's the author of more than 100 articles for various dog publications and senior author of Teaching Dog Obedience Classes: The Manual for Instructors, knows as "the bible" for trainers, and Training Your Dog: The Step-by-Step Manual, named Best Care and Training Book for 1983 by the DWAA.

Wendy is the recipient of four awards from the DWAA. She's the author of numerous articles, a regular columnist for the American Kennel Gazette, and co-author of five books, including the Canine Good Citizen: Every Dog Can be One, named Best Care and Training Book for 1995 by the DWAA, and The Holistic Guide for a Healthy Dog, now in its second edition.

Wendy, whose expertise extends to helping owners gain a better understanding of why their pets do what they do, developed the Canine Personality Profile, and her two-part series, "Drives — A New Look at an Old Concept," was named Best Article for 1991 in a Specialty Magazine by the DWAA. She also developed the most widely used system for evaluating and selecting puppies, and her film, Puppy Aptitude Testing, was named Best Film on Dogs for 1980 by the DWAA. Wendy specializes in behavior, nutrition, and alternative sources of healthcare for dogs, such as acupuncture and homeopathy, and has formulated a balanced homemade diet for dogs.
