|Tamar Geller Helps You Train
Your Own "Loved Dog"
Barbara Benvil Photography
More than a conventional dog trainer, Geller is really
a "life coach" for dogs and their people. Her goal
extends beyond solving individual dogs' problems.
Like The HSUS, Geller wants to keep millions of
dogs out of shelters by strengthening the bond
between dogs and their families. She knows that
behavior problems are one of the main reasons
dogs are given up. By addressing those problems,
more dogs can spend their entire lives as members
of a happy family.
At the heart of her training approach—and heart is
the operative word—is the belief that a dog's better
nature and best manners can be brought out
through mutual understanding and respect, not
physical dominance, aggressive techniques, prong
collars or choke chains. She uses games to engage
dogs in "play-training" and teaches people how to
really communicate with their canine companions.
Until now, most of the dogs and people who were
lucky enough to benefit from Tamar's approach
lived in Southern California, where she founded the
area's first cage-free dog boarding and day care
center. Now, her book, published by Simon
Spotlight Entertainment, is available to everyone.
Because Tamar is a good friend and advisor to The
HSUS, she and Simon Spotlight Entertainment
included a foreward by HSUS President and CEO
Wayne Pacelle and a brief overview of our Pets for
Life campaign at the end of the book. So hundreds
of thousands of readers will be introduced to The
HSUS as they enjoy the book.
The 2-disc "Celebrate Your Dog" DVD provides an
entertaining and visual guide to Basic Manners, with
a Bonus Housebreaking Lesson and Quick Tips.

guests by jumping up; if you want to change your
relationship with your dog in a way that's fun for
both of you, then you're ready for Tamar Geller's

Nonaggressive Way to Teach Your Dog Good
