"Cautious Canine is another marvelous booklet by Dr. McConnell. I love seeing my students dogs transformed after their owners start using Dr. McConnell s methods. In just a matter of weeks, I will see dogs that started out in class hiding under a chair barking at everyone who got close to them, to a dog who wants to greet everyone in class with a wagging tail." --Meredith Gage, owner Pawsitive Experience Dog Training and Consulting Bend, OR
"This booklet saved my dog's life and secured his place in my heart and home forever" --Karen Vogt
