Fear No More: Competing with Confidence

Ebook version is available here for $9.95!

Barbara Cecil and Gerianne Darnell have teamed up again to produce the book they've been promising their readers for the last 4 years: Fear No More: Competing With Confidence.

Do you feel you are your dog's greatest asset in practice and his greatest liability in the ring?  Have you ever realized as you're leaving the ring that you were holding your breath the whole time?  Has anyone ever commented that you appear to be ill or in pain while you're showing?  In the ring, does your dog sometimes act as though he's never seen you before?  Do you obsess over your handling errors and your dog's performance?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, Fear No More: Competing With Confidence is just the book for you!  In 12 chapters and 208 pages, Fear No More covers every stress-buster and tension-reliever from Affirmations to Zen, including what you should eat, drink, smell and hear, potions and pills, relaxation exercises, proper breathing, a reintroduction to psycho-cybernetics, goal setting, 20 pages of "Quick Fixes" and much, much more!

Whatever your area of dog sports, with the information in Fear No More you can make competing with your dog the enjoyable experience you've always wanted it to be.
