Firstly, this is not an everything dog training book. This is specifically for training recall or the "come" command.
We recently got a new puppy. While, I have trained several of my own dogs over the last 25 years I needed a refresher course. I got this book because of its total focus on recall or "come". Recalling your dog could be considered the most important command your dog needs to know, and many dogs simply don't do it reliably. Especially if they are happy sniffing at something or distracted in any way.
I took her recommendation of using the whistle because kids and visitors contaminate the "come" by using it inappropriately and not controlling the outcome or consequences. As she says we can teach her come when she is older and after recall to the whistle is fully and totally proofed (if you don't know that term- she explains it perfectly in the book.
It is required reading for my new trainers.
