Book Description

Even the most unruly dog can be trained if you just know how to talk to him!

If you are a dog owner, you probably already know how challenging dog training can be. Dogs have their own personality and their own ideas about what they want to do and it’s not always what you want them to do. Couple that with the fact that most people aren’t born being able to simply “whisper” to dogs and get them to do their bidding and you have a recipe for frustration.

All dogs are not created equal so it stands to reason that not all dogs should be trained the same way.

In fact, in order for dog training to be successful, you have to learn how to talk your dogs language. Not just “dog language” the language that your specific dog talks.

The mistake that most people make with dog training is to try to get the dog to understand them, when they should be working to understand the dog. And that's what this book will help you do - talk to your dog in a language that HE will understand!

Once you do that, you will find that dog training is not only easy and fun but you will quickly be able to turn your dog into the obedient companion you always wanted.

Review

***** 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

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally My Dogs Behave!! January 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
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!

1.0 out of 5 stars uninsightful March 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

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!

Written by someone who obviously cares and is on your side. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Some cheap books aren't worth even free June 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for beginners or pros. July 16, 2010
Format:Paperback
"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.

3.0 out of 5 stars needed a proofreader March 29, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mix but mostly good. June 6, 2012
By Lonnie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
