Above all, I appreciate this book because it helped me work in an upbeat and positive manner with my own dogs in managing their sometime fear related idiosyncratic behavior.
I highly recommend this easy, quick read. Debbie's techniques make so much sense. I was so impressed with this book, I donated several to the rescue organization where I adopted my dog.
I found this volume to be very understandable. She offers clear insight into psychological concepts in training, which affect the way we train. And, she clearly describes training methods so that I understood why they might work, and how to apply them. You know, real life is almost NEVER like the examples in a book, right? Well, from this volume, I could figure out how to change what I was doing to help train my dog better.
Not just for fearful dogs, the guidance in this book can be applied in other difficult behavior and difficult training situations. For instance, my dog is not so much a problem because he is fearful, but because he is submissive and sensitive. He is not timid, but if he were a person, he would be "thin-skinned". I have a neighbor with a dog who has aggression problems with other dogs. The concepts here can be applied to either situation.
I got two other books at the same time as this one ("Control Unleashed", and "On Talking Terms with Dogs"), and I am glad I did. I learned something from each one that I now apply when training my dogs. And, I am getter better results than I used to!

This book was okay. I give it three stars because it did have some useful information and nice explanations on different types of training but I would not call this a guide. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Elise Baird
