This in-depth look at dogs is a phenomenal tool for owners who either have trouble with their pets, or would like to begin training dogs. Most, if not all, questions are answered, and readers will walk away feeling 100% more confident in how to handle their beloved pets.

When we adopted our 10-week-old Australian cattle dog mix rescue four years ago, we immediately went to Kate (who was highly recommended by our vet). That's when we began our incredible training adventures beginning with puppy socialization classes and continuing through all kinds of intermediate and advanced commands and tricks in group and private sessions where, in addition to the fun stuff, we also worked on a variety of issues that make life in the city so challenging for a herding dog and his guardians. Kate's extremely professional, generous, cheerful, positive approach, which she tailors perfectly to the needs of each dog, has helped us to build an amazing relationship with Ollie, which wouldn't be what it is without her. With Kate it's not about telling your dog what to do, but about learning to communicate with him, understand what he's telling you (and other dogs), and work with him in a way that he will comprehend. People need training as much as their dogs, and Kate shows you how to travel that two-way street successfully with smiles on both ends of the leash. Kate and her book get four paws up from us! Thanks, Kate!
