What People are saying about this

Jack Canfield
Jack Canfield, Co-author, Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul and Chicken Soup for the Soul

This is an important book. Paul Owens offers a powerful voice of nonviolence and a truly enlightening approach to raising and training your dog. I wholeheartedly recommend his message of compassion and joy.

Michael Fox
From the Foreword by Dr. Michael W. Fox, Senior Scholar, Biothics, The Humane Society of The United States, Washington, D.C.

This wonderful book will help break the cycle of animal suffering caused by wrong-mindedness and harmful training methods. [The nonviolent process] helps us develop our empathy and understanding, making us more humane-and more human-and thus more deserving of the company of dogs whose virtues we so often fail to live up to.
