"the magic dog whisperer of North London" --The Times, 2004
This book, co-written with Emily Randolph (owner of a once madly aggressive Jack Russell, now a model of friendliness), is in part a training manual (written in a manner far removed from the parade-ground tones of Barbara Woodhouse) and in part a shrewd analysis of the human-canine relationship, which Dima simplifies to an almost disconcerting degree. --Trevor Grove, telegraph.co.uk, 04 Jul 2004

The book explains all the basic tools dog owners need to become good dog handlers making their dog want to learn.
Dima's Dog School's ten training sessions guide dog owners through all they need to learn to properly instruct their dogs with success. They will establish the essential foundations that can take them to any level of dog training, from general obedience to working in the show ring.
The book overs all the most common training and behavioural problems, offering both solutions and practical management methods for dog owners. It also includes case histories and shows what it takes to be a responsible dog owner.

You will also be taught how to train in a way that best applies to your individual dog. As a result, you will have a well-trained, happy dog that wants to do whatever you ask of him - and this will make you a happy and responsible dog owner. Best of all, your dog will think it's all fun and games!
