According to the book description of Canine Reflections, “this book is a personal, candid journey with the author that begins with a dog he briefly knew in his youth that belonged to an Uncle; to when he became a new Police K-9 Handler having never had a dog of his own before; through his evolution to becoming a Behaviorist Dog Trainer and “Dog Whisperer” that today helps dog owners learn.”


With co-author wife Jane Lueder, Duff Lueder recently published Your Personal Guide to “Dog Whispering”: & “Helping Dogs with People Problems.”


According to the book description of Your Personal Guide to “Dog Whispering”: & “Helping Dogs with People Problems,” “If you have ever wanted to learn more about the concepts and training principles of the "Dog Whispering" world, this "guide" will take you there. Complete with photo illustrations and specific instructions, you'll learn that "obedience techniques" are not just tricks to have a well-mannered dog, but are actually a "communication process" by which you and your dog can avoid misunderstandings.


You will enjoy a unique and eye-opening opportunity, maybe for the first time, in understanding what obedience techniques actually mean to the dog. You'll be enlightened about the myths and misconceptions in dog training so you can recognize which training processes can work the best for you and your dog together. You will learn step by step how to be your dog's calm, benevolent leader and how to demonstrate "alpha leader controls" that your dog can naturally relate to. You will learn why and how you will never have to say "no" to your dog again. Plus, you'll learn to recognize different forms of aggression, what they mean and how they can develop and that "Leadership Controls" along with specific "Obedience-Communication" techniques deal with these aggressions, other behavior issues and much more.


Through this personal guide, you will discover a less stressful way to train your special four-legged friend and enjoy him more than you ever imagined. It will open your mind and provide common sense insight into the wonderful world of communicating with your dog, just like you have always wanted. You will also recognize that whatever training methodology you choose to employ, that the principles you learn here can be used to enhance the proficiency of any process. If you are seeking that positive and fulfilling relationship with your dog without the confusion, frustration and guesswork, then it already began the moment you picked this book up.”
