Jon Katz, the New York Times bestselling author of The Dogs of Bedlam Farm, takes a bracing look at the booming industry of dog training, which he dubs "a catastrophe in America." Listening to Dogs is not a training book; it is an empowerment book. In it, Katz asks dog owners to stop before reaching for the latest training manual or watching the latest TV show, and to invest that time designing their own personal training programs for their and their dog's individual needs. Why pay for a dog training guru when you can be your own for free?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Jon Katz makes a lot of sense when it comes to the training of dogs. You need to understand your dog, it's breed and breed traits when it comes to specific training ideas. What works for a lab might not work for a pug. All in all I enjoyed reading this book and have successfully put a couple of his suggestions into the training of my goldendoodle.
