Her summaries are great and suggestions for re-directing these people appear to be very valid; so while the book wasn't what I was expecting, it is a worthwhile resource with some great information for anyone dealing with people and their personality quirks, whether it be in a dog training scenario or otherwise.
This book is really well written, packed with advice and a nice easy conversational style.
I'm studying for a Canine Behaviour Certificate course and found it much more practical than many of the books my college has recommended so far. Highly recommended for dog trainers.
After 20 years in the military, it was really helpful to read about some ways to work with difficult client personalities. The reminders about positively reinforcing the owners, practicing good verbal skills, and even using the owner's names instead of 'Rover's owner...'(my biggest weakness), were, and are still, helpful.
This book abounds with suggestions such as "Continually assess your clients' skill levels and observe their movements as you would a dog's. Keep adjusting your program accordingly, and be patient." This has become a standard with clients and saved much frustration for both parties.
I teach at the local junior college, and have volunteer helpers. I have them read this book, especially the "Ten Tips For Keeping Your Cool" and write-ups on the personality types.
A must for any trainer's library!
Thank you, the book is well written and highly recommended for all dog owners to read.
