"Really good book. Very pleased with it. solutions broken down in short easy sections. Not like other books where you have to read 20 pages to find the solution. Everyone should be able to solve their doggy problems with this book." - Amazon Review.
"This is a no-nonsense book about how to re-assert your leader status in the hierarchy of your pack. No punishment is used, rather a system of taking away the privileges that give your dog alpha status in the family and rewarding only appropriate behaviour."
"Like people, dogs can develop bad and/or annoying habits. The author looks at some of the most common behavioural faults and offers training solutions to resolve the problem. The work is well illustrated and easy to read. It is a good reference for anyone with a dog as a companion and/or working partner." - Goodreads Reviews.
