Fortunately for me, my dog is not as scared as the ones she describes were. That said, many of the techniques she outlines have been saving graces for me. Most importantly, I now use a crate in the car when I drive with my dog. No more barking wildly at buses, motorcycles, other dogs, and trolleys! No more trying to clamber out the window after those offensive pieces of machinery! I have no more fear about how my dog is going to act in the car, and she has a lot more security while being in the car.
There are many other strategies I will consider using with my scaredy dog. If your dog is the kind of dog who reacts unpredictably in a wide variety of situations and you want to keep your dog, other dogs, and other people safe around your dog, this book provides a strong and solid base from which to begin your work. Highly recommended!
Ali's long discussion of diet did not seem as useful as her hands-on advice. Overall, though, if you have a reactive dog this book will help you and your dog.
What I appreciate most about Scaredy Dog is that it moves beyond explaining that my dog is scared. Ali Brown provides very clear advice and exercises to do with your dog. I do wish that the training program had been more clearly laid out. On the other hand, this gave me the freedom to use the various exercises to create a training program that addresses my dog's needs.
I highly recommend this book. I feel like I have goal and a way to get there now.
