Downloadable in 3 different formats, so it should work in pretty much any eReader (ePub, Mobi, and PDF).
The Ahimsa Dog Training Manual is also available as a paperback book.
What is Ahimsa?
“Ahimsa” is a Buddhist doctrine of nonviolence to all living things, reflecting my focus on force-free dog training and behavior modification.
I use progressive, science-based training to build two-way communication between humans and their dogs.
Who is This For?
Everyone! This guide has specific, practical exercises: straightforward enough for dog families to put into practice, but also helpful for professional dog trainers.
The Ahimsa Dog Training facility in Seattle alone has helped tens of thousands of dogs with this book.
Different ways that dogs learn.
Clicker training, from beginner to more advanced.
How to stop unwanted behavior (puppy biting, fear/aggression, separation anxiety, etc.).
How to teach behavior you like.
Coming when called, the name, watch, relaxation, sit, down, stay, wait, touch, walking on leash, give, go to your bed, and more!
Also available as a paperback book and in eBook bulk (10 codes) or paperback bulk (box of 20 copies) to share with your clients or adopters. Set your clients up for success by including a book with your dog training classes!
The Ahimsa Dog Training Manual eBook is included with the Diamond Membership All-Access Pass (see below).

Practical, step-by-step training solutions
I'm fascinated by animal behavior, somatic awareness, and psychology. I'm passionate about wholehearted living for all beings, including dogs with a history of aggression, frustration, or fear as well as puppies and my other favorite species: humans.
My Behavior Adjustment Training technique (BAT 2.0 and the new BAT 3.0) is used worldwide to help dogs gain confidence and social skills. A conservative calculation is that well over 100,000 people have learned about BAT so far.
I have always loved teaching. I earned a Master's in mathematics and taught college courses, but I found my true calling in dog training. I have been teaching dog training and behavior since 2003. In 2010, I started traveling worldwide to teach dog trainers about BAT. In 2014 I developed BAT 2.0 and also started my online dog training and behavior school, which now has over 100 classes from my favorite emotionally intelligent dog experts. My new podcast, The Lesson is Love launches in 2023.
As an outgoing introvert, I enjoy traveling to cooperative conferences and love teaching about dogs online. I refresh my batteries by savoring life in the woods with my husband (Tom), Labrador (Joey), cat (Garbanzo aka "Adventure Kitty" and "Baby Panther"), and Little Brown Dog (Zuki).
