I currently don't even have a copy of this book, because I gave it to one of my clients who urgently needed help with her dog. Highly recommended!
This is a positive and delightful outlook on training dogs. Her love and genuine understanding truly shine in her words.
I would recommend this book to anyone just starting out, or for someone like me who just thought they knew it all, but needed a little boost! She really made me stop and think!
This is also a book that speaks for today's world. It is updated and current, not something from ten years ago repeating the same tricks that we've all heard for years.
Her approach is fantastic and inspiring. There is even a true story at the end that will bring you to tears as well as warm your heart.
She gives lots of tid bit about helpful snacks to buy, other books that she recommends, and guidance on finding a good trainer of your own.
I am quite impressed with the powerful punch this little book packs!
5 stars all the way!
