This poor man keeps writing books and giving speeches full of absurd and out of date information. He says things like "don't make your dog sit before you put his food bowl down because he'll be doing it for the food and not for you." It would be funny if his methods didn't promote violence and mistreatment of animals. His reputation has taken a hit since he was filmed on the street in Toronto choking one dog, running another dog into a tree, and screaming at a woman while he slapped and choked her dog. I'm not kidding. This particular book of his is full of outdated nonsense on alpha theory and unnecessarily complicated solutions for behavioral problems. One thing Mr. Pattison does do 'right' is to promote a good diet and exercise plan, and that is indeed important for a dog's quality of life. In light of videos in which dogs cower at the sound of his voice, however, that slim redeeming feature just isn't enough.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Don't buy his books, don't watch his shows. Check out Jolanta Benal's book for some solid info and science-based information.
