Bottom line in ALL of the obedience books - there is the author's "way" and there are multiple other authors who also believe they have the perfect approach to training. All I can say is none of them are 100% correct! What works for one dog won't work for another. You know your dog better than anyone else so YOU need to extrapolate what you need from various books and apply it to your dog.
I adopted my first dog this year from the local animal shelter and needed some help with his training. It turns out he's practically a doggie genius (yes, I'm biased), which is great...except he's smart and sensitive enough to need to really need (not just deserve) positive reinforcement training. Within MINUTES (no hyperbole, no kidding) he was walking with me on a loose leash! We're still working on walking on a loose leash without treats every block, but he's doing GREAT!
Reading Positive Perspectives is really helping me get a better understanding of my new family member. It's improved the dog-human relationships in my household already, and we've only worked on a fraction of the training opportunities from this book.
Thank you, Pat, for all your good work on this book and with your organization Peaceable Paws!
Pat's on a mission to not only spread the word about positive dog training, but also to help you master it step by step. In her new book, you will find information you'll want to refer to over the course of your dog's lifetime. You'll find chapters that cover basic dog training such as "Living with Humans 101," to more complex behavioral issues such as "Don't Leave Me! Dealing With Separation Anxiety" and "Bite Me! Avoiding and Overcoming Aggression." Positive Perspectives is written in an easily understandable and thoroughly pleasurable way for the general public as well as professional dog trainers.

Pat Miller is a champion of positive training techniques. She is also realistic about what the average person with a job and kids can handle when it comes to training a dog.
