Editorial Reviews

Review

'Enchanting, moving, well-constructed,informative without being heavy.'  Michel Hasbrouck,international dog trainer and author of bestselling 'Gentle Dog Training'
 
'I've never read anything like it. Very entertaining.' Dr Florence Guérin, dog breeder and Crufts winner with her O Nut Glen Irishterriers'

From the Author

I've always loved dogs and as well as observing my own Pyrenean Mountain dogs, I've read thousands of true stories from dog-owners, many of whom need help. I read the Pyrenean rescue forums and one particular dog's story touched me so deeply that I couldn't put him out of mind. This dog was the basis for the story of Sirius but I included true stories of other dogs, both funny and sad. Everything in this book is true but it didn't all happen to one dog. My own male Betel provided some of the stories, and that's his beautiful face on the book jacket. My female, Blanche, injected a lot of her character into Sirius' sister, Snow. 

I really hope that the story will touch people, as I was touched, and that it will also make them think. I was lucky enough to work with top French dog-trainer, Michel Hasbrouck, after I translated his bestseller into English as 'Gentle Dog Training'. From him, I learned so much about how we accidentally train dogs to behave 'badly' and I thought it would be interesting to show this from a dog's viewpoint. By the end of four months writing this book, I was a dog, and if any of my readers feel the same way, then I think I've succeeded.
