Dominance is an outdated concept. ( read "in defence of dogs"!) Despite this there was on the whole a focus on positive training methods and on being consistent and fair (ie not expecting a dog to understand a punishment that was for an error committed some time in the past) however it felt bitty especially in the spoken format were navigating the tips was difficult and it only really focused on sit down come and stay with its version of heal. I liked the explanation of the reasoning for teaching your dog to have food taken away mid eat to mimic the whims of children it might encounter since it seemed a pragmatic safety point but overall i still felt using the concept of dominance was too much of a fault to ignore.
Short & sweet. Helpful tips. Provided some good ideas to help us with training our 5 year old rescue. Liked the audible version.
Basic but contains good tips for those of us who are not natural dog whisperers.
"good fot beginners"
Good basic tips for the new dog owner, A good place to start. Start with these, once these are mastered you can move on to a more expensive book
"I love this book"
I love this book learning to be a dog trainer and this take a lot of time off when I can sit and and listen to the book instead of trying to eat it all I want some good from this book
Just from talking to friends I already 90% of the book. But it did Give
me a little structure and order where that was missing.
