In this well-written, easy-to-follow dog training manual, authors Fisher and Delzio provide gentle, humorous advice for training "hard to train dogs." They outline specific training disorders and motivational techniques that will work with many breeds of dogs, and they advise common sense, patience, and diligence, especially when working with animals that were originally bred to display qualities of independence and dominance. Readers will appreciate the encouraging, simple instructions and examples, the humorous anecdotes, and the easy recipes for baking training treats. The book will appeal to dog owners frustrated by previous training attempts, and even those interested in training for show purposes. Kathleen Hughes
