While animal restraint is a very unpredictable situation, this book outlines the basic methods that will lead toward keeping everyone involved as safe as possible. Animal restraint is not something you can learn by reading, and therefore this book uses numerous photos to guide you. It is evident that the reader's safety while restraining is clearly the top priority.
