***** Finally My Dogs Behave!!
I started reading Lee's book and quickly implementing the training information she included, because we were having to get a babysitter while we went out! It was amazing how the little things like putting a blanket under the table while we were gone helped her feel more comfortable at home, alone. - Mary Welfel


***** A book with a lot of heart
It's all about understanding. If you want to avoid anger and disappointment, knowing your dog is the solution. I learned a lot from this book, and I couldn't help thinking that maybe some of these insights apply to humans! - Paul J Coleman

First let me tell you about my dog:
When we left her at home, she would constantly rip the house apart. We got a kennel for her, and she broke some of the wires out. I didn't want her to get hurt, so we tried to put her in the bathroom, where she ate the toilet flushing handle, left teeth marks in the doorknob, and tore up the door frame. Next we tried to put her on a leash in the house, just while we were gone, she tore up the carpet, and ripped up linoleum. I flipped over the kennel and tried it that way, and she busted completely out of it, while we were gone, and ate my prescription medication. Finally, we put her on her chain outside while we were gone for half an hour, and came home to her running around the neighborhood, with her collar on, and the chain completely intact- she is Houdini!

I started reading Lee's book and quickly implementing the training information she included, because we were having to get a babysitter while we went out! It was amazing how the little things like putting a blanket under the table while we were gone helped her feel more comfortable at home, alone.

We had also had problems with her jumping, but since working on my leader of the pack skills I've been able to command her to be have when people come over. She understands when I tell her bed and she does it. I've read a lot of puppy websites, and books and none seemed to include as many ideas to help like this one did. I can't wait to see if Lee provides another book on dogs, because the insight to their psyche is definitely useful for anyone with dogs, and I've had them my entire life. Thanks again, and I definitely recommend!

This is a brief overview of what a dog is and how to moderately train it. There is little insight into the nuances of dog training, nor is there anything of worth in the explanations of how a dog thinks or why it acts like it does. It references outdated thinking, and recommends things I would never tell anyone to do (grabbing a dog by the scruff and growling into his face). If you really want directions on how to train your dog responsibly, look elsewhere.

In this day, with so much out there of positive updated information on dog training, why do we have another book telling people to use dominance based training, and siting the old outdated and disproved idea of wolf pack dynamics??? We don't!

Skip this and get a book from Karen Pryor, or Patricia Mcconnell or any other positive based, or clicker based training. IF it works for dolphins where we can't choke hold them into submission, then it will work for dogs that actually WANT to please us!!!

The training in this book is dangerous and wrong. Don't waste your money!

"Do You Speak Dog" is a very well written and easy to understand dog training guide. Whether you have just gotten your first puppy or you have had dogs your entire life, you will be able to glean some great information from this book. I was especially impressed with the chapter on dog ancestry and the history of dogs as domestic companions. This helped me to understand where my dog is coming from so that I can better know how to train him.

I also really enjoyed doing the lessons at the end of the book with my dog. We are both still learning, but this book is making the experience much, much easier.

Full of typographical and punctuation errors, this book is difficult to read. The content is decent if the material had been proofread prior to publication.

There is a lot of good information in this book including an acknowledgement that positive reinforcement training is the new way to go. However, there are some dangerous bits of advice mixed in - including growling in the face of a dog that is growling at you and playing tug of war. Read critically and be careful.

A client told me she was reading this book and had noticed a few references to old hypothesis (dominance) that she knew from her research had been long ago disproven (excellent client!). So I had a little "look inside". Indeed there are some glaring factual inaccuracies in this book (quite damaging ones at that - google APBC 'why won't dominance die?' to learn more) but I was more appalled at the use of the words "Spack attack" to describe a dog's behaviour. A derogatory word stemming from the term "Spastic" to describe people with learning difficulties. Horrified. Do yourselves a favour and buy a book from an educated, ethical behaviour professional like Jean Donaldson or Karen Pryor.
