I have two reservations about the book. First, it seems to me that the predictions about how quickly a canine (any canine) will learn new behaviors are overly optimistic. Training takes time, and for almost all dogs that time is measured in weeks, months, and sometimes in years. Second, I wonder if a wolf hybrid is the right dog for a person or family who is brand new to canine ownership/leadership.
But this is still a superb book for any dog owner/leader/handler, especially for the "newcomer".
I had intended to get this for her earlier but life sorta got in the way, but managed to get it for her this year. From what I've been told, she loves the book and found it very informative as to why her hybrid does the things she does. I'm still skeptical as to the success they'll have with the hybrid (considering they've failed to properly train the expensive hunting dog they bought a few years back), but hopefully this book will allow them to understand a wolf hybrid isn't a typical domesticated dog, she can't be treated as such and prevent a tragedy (since they live right next to a highway and are surrounded by cattle ranches).
Buy this book and have a wonderful day!
