As a dog lover/parent, I found this book very helpful. I much prefer Victoria's approach to that of Caesar Milan and similar trainers. In my opinion, she's more respectful of the dog, and doesn't base everything on dominating the dog and establishing oneself as the "pack leader". Maybe the dominating approach works for some people & dogs, but Victoria's approach is simple and I think works for all.

Victoria Stilwell's new book explains to the doting pet parent what is going on in the entirely unregulated dog-training field what to look for in a trainer. She argues convincingly that Positive Reinforcement methods are all we need and supports her position with scientifically-based research and fact. If you want a great relationship with your dog, as well as terrific manners, check out this entertaining and very readable cutting-edge dog lovers book. Thank you for writing this, Victoria Stilwell!  LInda Michaels, MA -- Dog Psychologist

After 2 years, I still use this book as a reference guide for training our little rescue dog, Sofi. She is the dog that Victoria is holding on the cover of the book. You will be very happy you purchased this book and so will your dog! Matthew from Atlanta
