This undated image provided by Candice Ball shows Ball holding her dog, Toshi. Ball, of New York City, was tired of wasting money on training classes that didn't work for her or her 6-year-old shih tzu Toshi. "I failed the classes. He wasn't treat-motivated. We sat and stared at each other. Then someone recommended Babette Haggerty's and her praise-only training methods." she said. A well-trained Toshi has since appeared on "Law and Order: SVU," the final episode of "30 Rock" and in a New York Yankees commercial for MasterCard. (AP Photo/Candice Ball) less
