The rescue origanization woman who left a 1 star review for the book as a personal vendetta is patently unfair and vindictive. She openly admits laying in wait for a book, ANY book, by Ms. Peak to target her based on the reviewer's own poor decision making and assessment of a dangerous dog in earlier years. It is NEVER OK to put others at risk in the name of "saving every dog." If the reviewer read and gave a balanced and fair assessment of the book, perhaps knowledge would be gained that would prevent the reviewer from adopting out dogs who put humans at risk of physical injury.
There is a lot to be gleaned from the book and pet adopters are well-served to be as knowledgeable as possible when adopting a dog. It is never a good idea to assume all rescues organizations have the skills and education to take in and adopt out, every dog they bring in. If you encounter a rescue group with members who are so blatantly vindictive they admittedly lay in wait for opportunity, that is NOT the person whose opinion you want to trust or rely upon when assessing a dog for placement in your home.
Assess the source of your puppy as much, or more, as you assess the ability of the dog to fit into your home. Always consider the source and much of the educational insight you need to make those decisions can be found in Ms. Peak's book herein.
Karen Peak's new book is a must for those considering adopting a puppy or a dog. She goes into detail about the different choices and changes a new four-legged friend will bring.
A good title for both the novice or experienced dog person.
