It’s so hard where to decide to begin this review. The author has really created an awesome book that discusses how both training and nutrition can help you make your dogs life longer and more fulfilling. Personally as a single person I always find it difficult to cook for just one. In the past I found myself wasting so much food. Dog Bites by Steve Brooks really educated me not just on recipes, but also on what foods were safe for my dogs. We’ve all spent countless hours typing-“can my dog eat…” (followed by whatever you have extras of ) into the Google search bar. This book helps by educating you on the vast foods that are good for your dog so that you can spend more time bonding and less time researching. In addition, the book is also filled with amazing tricks for training your dog, some of which involve using food. One of my favorite sections was “Real Life K-9 Rewards” where the author explains different ways to reward your dog. One huge step for me was understanding that everything, even your dog’s water bowl, can be used as a reward to strengthen the bond between you and your dog. There is also an awesome section on positive training. For those of you pet owners who don’t like using spray bottles, hitting, or other physically domineering forms of training- this chapter is great at explaining how to motivate your dog with positive reinforcement. In short this book is a MUST BUY in my opinion. You get a book that shows you ways to train and feed your dog in a safe and healthy way!
Dog Bites is a fabulous resource for recipes you can share with your dog! Many delicious options. My dog and I are both enjoying them. Fun read that includes training tips as well as tasty recipes :)
The way to a man's heart is through his stomach, but that's also the path to forever commitment from your dog! LOL In "Dog Bites," Steve Brooks, a renowned obedience trainer, shares exceptional tips on teaching manners as well as yummy recipes to help enforce the lessons. Being a Pet First Aid & Safety Instructor myself, I emphasize the importance of teaching pets manners to help prevent injuries from ever happening, but...Steve also hit on another high note in this book by sharing which foods are dog safe! Human and canine bodies are not alike, so educating yourself by reading this informative book may help you become your dog's best friend!
There is really no other book out there like this! If you want to safely feed your dog AND yourself a healthy balanced diet, it's all in this book. The recipes are simple yet fun to cook, anyone can follow along. No need to be a chef, but your dog will think you're one.
I LOVE STEVE BROOKS! And this latest book, Dog Bites!! It is BEYOND helpful for healthy, delicious, human recipes that you can share with your canine babies!! Invaluable, out of the box, healthy ways to train your dogs that have lasting benefits for your health, their health, obedience, training and making sure your dog is a member of the family using brilliant, positive reinforcement, with knowing things like: which foods are dangerous? Which foods are good for weight maintenance, bad breath, mood disorders, recovering from cancer, AND all while learning so much about how YOU can be a better parent:-) Steve gives you every possible scenario; from behavior challenges to health challenges, and how to give "bite sizes" of your healthy human food to set your dog up for everlasting success. Both my boys were trained by Steve, and as a result they got over everything from motion sickness, child fear aggression, submissive and compulsive behaviors (that other vets said would require medication!) so that we ALL were set up for success!! He has made my kids real gentleman, lovely to babysit (happily crate trained), and vets are always so thrilled to see/examine them because of their great disposition. Who knew that Fennel helps with Harry's breath and digestion?!? OR Banana chips and roasted chicken are healthy delicious meals we can share, that make ME look like a rockstar in the kitchen:-))) Thank you Steve for helping so many with your recipes, love and sharing your true calling.
