    better than Cesar's books

    Jan Fennell shows you how to teach your dog to "want" to please. Thanks to Jan I tell my dog to "go to her bed" and she runs to her crate. It's her safe place.

    Worthy ideas, poorly presented

    Fennel's ideas about how to correct behaviour problems in dogs are original, simple, inexpensive, easy and they work. However, this book is easily 4 times larger than it has to be and is not well organized.

    A must read for dog owners!

    I purchased this book before we picked up our hunting dog. My husband and I read it cover to cover. With respect to our puppy - we live by the principals laid out in this book and our puppy lives a very happy life. The first few chapters lay out the ground rules and techniques and the following chapters give specific examples of how the author was able to help people get along great with their dogs by following the rules! These additional chapters really help you learn how to apply the techniques in different situations. This book will turn the light on for you and you will be able to relate to your dog in a totally new and better way. It's a must read for any one who truly wants to live with their dog as a part of their family. Also, it's important to note that it's never too late to start the techniques. With this book in hand, you can teach an old dog new tricks!

    Good Book But....

    The author realy knows what she is talking about but it is more like an autobiography than solutions to helping you understand your dog. She gets into details in some areas that are not very important and then moves on to a story and then gets totaly off the subject. Her stories are very interesting but you kind of get sick of them when you are really wanting valuble information and all you get is a story. She is very braud in almost all sircumstances. Her chaper starts off with for example 'Teething' There is only one our of the 6 pages under that heading that has to do with teathing. Its a good book if you want to learn about the writter.

    I loved this book.

    I just read this book this summer before our little puppy arrived. It is so helpful. It will be a great reference book too. I hope it works, our puppy is now home for a week.

    Wish all dog-owners knew how to be alpha

    The author's concept is clear and logical: your dog IS a wolf-successor so deal with it at those terms, applying positive reinforcement only (I believe anything else is animal abuse). She gives plenty of guidance and examples how to turn the basic rules of (wolf) pack-life to your benefit in your home and control your dog instead of him/her controlling you. Her fairly complete method however fails to reach beyond obedience and companionship and does not give you any clue how to build on this basis when training an independently thinking working dog.
