Dog Obedience Training by Ross Allan is an easy to read step by step training guide providing the reader with practical training and an insight into the canine physic. The book begins with a background into the Author and his family. It talks about his qualifications and experience which I found very important. The approach of the book is practical and in a sense 'obvious once you and your canine know how'. It teaches the reader to train their animal with praise, corrections, repetition, bonding and eye contact. I have found this book to be the most effective training tool for both myself and my German Shepherd Kayla. We are both much better for it and enjoy a greater bonding as a result.

Dog Obedience Training by Ross Allan is an excellent book for anyone seeking serious advice on training their dog. It is clear, concise and easy to follow with a step by step process outlined for each exercise along with wonderful colour photos demonstrating the correct handling procedure. I have used Ross Allan's training methods on my own two dogs and have achieved the desired results when all other avenues have failed. The years of experience and dedication to dog obedience training by the author have produced what I consider to be the best book available for everyone from beginners to the more advanced dog handler. I have witnessed Ross Allan's methods work time and time again and thoroughly recommend this book to anyone in need of guidance with the training of their canine companion.

At last a useful,back to basics,thoughtful book on obedience. This is a book to use from the very beginning of your dogs training as a puppy or in his middle or even later years, the principles applied suit all. I thought I knew it all having trained all my dogs to competition level until this one dog beat me. Using this book and referring to it I can now take my well behaved dog anywhere. I found that a lot of methods I had first learnt 20 years ago using working dog principles as I was taught I had forgotten in shortcutting. This book brought me back to the solid foundation I needed. All the pages are laminated so one can refer to it as needed without the pages wearing.

The quallity of material and contents of this book made it a must for my personal library. The informative contents and ease of reading made understanding each exercise a simple task when it came to implmenting my dogs training. The obvious knowledge and experience of the author showed through clearly as someone who takes dog training seriously. The books picture illustrations were invaluable in understanding the basics of each exercise. This book is well worth the expense, a very well presented and set out guide to dog training.

How often have we wished someone successful would show us the ropes? With Ross Allans Dog Training it's easy to tap into the experience and hard work that often take years and years to accumulate. The efforts of Ross Allan in this book show simple straight forward techniques on how to avoid and correct the problems most of us experience with our dogs every single day. I had a bit of a stint working as a Dog Handler in the South African military. Now I work for Guide Dogs Queensland Australia. To see Ross work with his dog "The Cisco kid" was something harmonious. Kind of what we all strive for in our relationship with our companions. Give it a read, and pick up the phone... the author is a nice guy too.

I have a 6 month old American Pit Bull and the day I got "Cross" is the day I also started reading this book. Today he is a trust worthy and obedient dog. What Ross does is breaks down how you train the dog and also gives you an insight into why your puppy or dog does what they do. ANYONE who has a dog should read this book.
