I enjoyed this book immensely. We are planning to get a sighthound sometime next year and the instruction here will come in very handy during training, which is fairly specific for the Saluki.

The author is a bit of a purist when it comes to food and fleas and chemicals. I appreciate the advice and definitely something to keep in mind, but just say it once and move on. That would be my only complaint.

I have been a fan of Only Angels and Saluki Secrets since their earliest incarnations, even before the days of STOLA Saluki Rescue. The affection training methods outlined in Only Angels are perfect for not only sighthounds, but for any dog who is sensitive and intelligent by nature. I'm a strong proponent of positive training approaches, and have found these methods to work wonders with my own Salukis.

One thing I truly like about the training methods in Only Angels is that they don't just "teach the dog stuff". They open an entire way of communicating with the animal, and helping the animal to communicate with their human, that extends to every aspect of life. By using these methods, starting with the basics as outlined, you develop not only a well-behave and safe canine companion, you develop a relationship.

The safety and health advice is great as well, and the fact that the publisher donates proceeds to the rescue organization is a great bonus.

This is a fabulous book. Beautifully written and wonderful photographs from cover to cover. I have a shy saluki and found the section on socializing (the correct way) to be very informative. I have owned (or been owned by ???) sighthounds for years but this book has enlightned me on so many topics from feeding to grooming. I'm so glad I bought it.

I highly recommend this book to all sighthound and scenthound owners. This book will teach you how to treat and train your hound. You and your dog will be happy with the training results.
