This review is from: Training Dogs: A Manual (Paperback)
My adopted Malamute (very difficult dogs at times) only listened to my commands (sit, down, stay) when he was on a leash and when he felt like it. "Come here"? Forget it, leash or no leash, he didn't listen to that one at all. Oh, and he always jumped on counters, yes, even while I was in the room at times.
6 months of problems I've had with this dog practically disappeared in the one week I've been putting this book in practice, and he's still learning.
He was a spoiled princess who couldn't be trained with "positive" methods, but by following the stricter methods in this book, he actually took things more seriously. He's now more attentive than ever before, comes when called and responds to orders. A bit slow on responding to the orders sometimes, but the transformation alone is enough for me to want to put this book on some kind of alter though. Honestly. Hahaha.
I did have difficulties understanding some parts in the book straight away, but I really do recommend this book.
5+ stars, man.
