From the description of this book, I expected information on how to live in better harmony with our K-9 friends. The cover of the book states this book contains information regarding understanding the relationship between humans and domestic dogs. This is a book about TRAINING your dog primarily for showing. I didn't expect a lot of jargon for me to retrain my dog into what someone else thinks he ought to be. I have a very small dog who doesn't require the same training that a larger dog does, in my opinion. She's always had a loving, and happy attitude towards everything. According to this auther, it's a rarity for a dog to behave like this one it's own. I'm not so sure it is such a rarity. If you pick your breed carefully, you don't have alot of the types of problems the author describes. Contrary to what this author says, my dog DOES know the difference between her toys and what she's not to get into. If I tell her not to get into something, she doesn't. This book is full of the author's opinions and even states on page 139, 'Dogs are nowhere near the league of kids when it comes to making (these) links, largely because they have no language.' Anyone who knows much about dogs, KNOWS they have their own language and their brian is completely different than a humans. This book might benefit those wanting to train their dogs for 'lures', 'clickers' and for the show ring, and for those with larger unruly dogs. I prefer to enjoy more of my dogs natural spirit and not have her trained to be able to show. I got her for companionship, not to be a show toy or to be a remote control dog.
