    I picked this up looking for some new dog training ideas. On the advice of his behaviorist, we've started clicker training and the actual tricks aren't what's important, but the mental and physical stimulation. I was actually hoping to get Sundance's "101 Dog Tricks", but my library doesn't have it. So settled for this instead. Also, I was partially curious as to what crafts I could do with my dog.

Unless you consider breaking lamps, destroying windowsills, and other assorted home destructions as crafts, in which case we have that down. Bentley is a bulldog and has some anxiety, aggression, and obvious physical limitations. I had to laugh when going through this book - windsurfing was out (he can't swim) as was truffle snuffling (like the pigs typicall used, he'd no doubt eat any finds) and geese wrangling (though I admit, this would be hilarious to watch). I also don't foresee the high or long jump in his future not to mention dogrobatics, hoop jumping, tandem paragliding, or dog sledding. In the end, I believe we'll stick with clicker training, hand signals, a skateboard I've always talked about getting him. It was a cute book, though, and there are tons of ideas of things to do with your dog if they're more social, mentally stable, and physically capable than my guy.

    I got this book along with another by this author from the library in order to find some fun things to do with our rescue dog, Moose. I didn't realize this is literally a list of 101 things people train their dogs to do in the way of complicated sports and occupations. Each one is covered in one double-page spread with lots of photos of dogs doing that behavior. Examples -- skateboarding, truffle hunting, windsurfing, sled pulling, tracking, etc. A few basic steps are listed for how to teach eac I got this book along with another by this author from the library in order to find some fun things to do with our rescue dog, Moose.

Examples -- skateboarding, truffle hunting, windsurfing, sled pulling, tracking, etc. A few basic steps are listed for how to teach each skill to your dog, but this is probably not going to be enough for a dog to master them well. Most of these are not going to be options for our dog. It's interesting seeing all the things people have trained their dogs to do, but then you'll need to find actual instructions for more detail elsewhere.

    It's not exactly a training book, but rather a book about what other people do with their dogs. This books covers 101 ways you can have fun with your dog. Crafts, games, activities, etc. However, of the 101, maybe 10 of them my dog can do (I own a papillon). It doesn't actually tell you how to do any of them, just says they exist. For example, "doga" (yoga with your dog) sounds fun, but it just tells you to go to a class. It also has things like "weiner dog racing", "terrier hurdle racing" and " It's not exactly a training book, but rather a book about what other people do with their dogs.

The book does a nice job explaining each activity and I did learn about things I never knew about- (like I never knew there was such a thing called working dogs for conservation). I did enjoy this book (which is why it has 4 stars), just don't get it thinking it's a training book.

    2.5 stars, rounded up because I fully support encouraging people to do more with their dog. This book was a bit hit or miss, with full sections being completely irrelevant to my dog and me. For example, if you aren't interested in doing water activities with your dog, then there's 10 activities and nearly 20 pages that won't apply to you. There is a heavy focus on things to do with purebreds, including activities that are only relevant to one to a few breeds.

There is a heavy focus on things to do with purebreds, including activities that are only relevant to one to a few breeds. This book definitely felt like it was trying too hard to find 101 activities. I would have much rather this book focus on activities that most dogs could enjoy, including mixed breeds, in more depth, than listing out 101 activities many dogs won't be able to try at all. There were a few activities to do with your dog that made no sense, like "teaching a blind or deaf dog" or "physically challenged dogs." Am I supposed to make my dog deaf or blind to teach him? Am I supposed to have my dog around while I teach someone else's deaf or blind dog? These didn't really seem like activities I could do with my dog rather than ways to fill the pages and meet an arbitrary number of activities. I did like that there were some "how to get started sections," though many were so brief, they weren't particularly helpful to novice trainers. For example, dog carting is reduced to 4 steps. For an activity that has high potential for injury, it seemed irresponsible to reduce this to so few steps. I did find ideas for my dog and I to do and there were definitely some things I'd like to try at some distant future point with a different dog. I'm glad I skimmed it, but it's probably not the best book for the intermediate to experienced dog owner.

    This book is not really what I was expecting. I was kind of expecting a continuation of the 101 dog tricks book but this was more of an introduction to dog sports and dog activities.

    I just thumbed through this. I thought it would be more how-to and it seems to be more "your dog might like this." I just thumbed through this. I thought it would be more how-to and it seems to be more "your dog might like this."

    It is literally a list of sports you can do with your dog, equipment needed and references on where to find out more.

    Lots of ideas but not all practical depending on your location or fear of heights ... nice recipe though.

    Great summary of all the options out there for dogs and their humans. Really just a summary though, more in depth info is out there if you're looking for it.

    Nice pictures. Creative activities of all kinds one can do with a dog. Unfortunately, very few appealed to me that I'm not already doing with my dogs Nice pictures.
