About the Author
Laura VanArendonk Baugh CPDT-KA KPACTP has been working with dogs and horses since childhood, and she began training professionally in 1999. Laura was one of the earliest dog trainers to achieve national certification, scoring 98% on her written exam. She enjoys pursuing continuing education more than anyone should, and she has presented internationally on behavior. Laura is particularly fascinated by the science of altering behavior. Her instructional videos are popularly recommended and used in presentations on clicker training, and one has even made its way into a Harvard behavior class! In January 2008 Laura became a Certified Training Partner with the highly-regarded Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training & Behavior, and she returned to the Academy as an instructor, teaching certification workshops around the country. You can find Laura at www.CaninesInAction.com and at www.LauraVanArendonkBaugh.com.

What I especially liked about the book and I wish she had talked more about it, is your dog doesn't have to be a snarling, aggressive dog to be freaked out. Mine, for instance, simply cannot contain himself when he sees people on the street or when they come to the house. He just has to jump all over them and let them know how glad he is to see them. It takes him about five minutes to do this and then he is fine. I'm planning to try her approach to see if I can get him to settle down.
I would highly recommend this book to owners who have a dog who fits the description from the title!!
