Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 11/24/2013

    " A practical guide with great explanations of why certain behaviors work and why others don't. I'm using this to train my dogs and it has worked wonders on their behavior. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 11/23/2013

    " I liked this book - it really helped me to understand dogs better. I especially liked the info on helping a dog overcome fear and agression. The only negative for me is that Cesar says that it's important to see your dog as just an animal and treat it as such. That just doesn't work for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mel | 11/19/2013

    " This is the first book I've read on clicker training, so I don't really know how it compares to the others. I'm cautiously optimistic about the method, but I'll have to try it out with my dog before I can make any real judgements. The book was well-written and easy to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 10/13/2013

    " There are some good tips to be found in this book, but the overall philosophy on how to train a dog is plagued with uneducated, unbalanced canine phycology. This book will produce more nervous, unstable dogs than well-balanced, happy dogs. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy G | 10/11/2013

    " I'm willing to give this to one of my "friends." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cate Forster | 10/9/2013

    " Helpful and dable advice for those traing a dog. It's about understanding the dog and what will motivate theappropriate behaviour "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 10/6/2013

    " Good ideas. Fair organization of ideas but not great. He could be more clear about certain ideas that I wanted more info on like why you would want a "martingale leash". He just says that you should buy one but not why. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 9/15/2013

    " This was more real and individual to dog's personality, I really appreciate the positive reinforcement of behavior in a dog. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 8/16/2013

    " An informative book, and I really like this approach to training. Every now and then, Owens gets just a bit too hippie-like, even for me, but overall I think we have a similar mindset when it comes to dogs. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shelly | 6/21/2013

    " Rather boring and not my style at all. "

    " Very informative with a lot of great training tips. Some of the descriptions are heavy handed, but overall I think anyone who would like to train their dog in a way best for both the dog and owner would benefit from reading this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristen | 2/25/2013

    " So far, I like the idea of positive reinforcement only. But, that's hard when your dog would much rather roll aroud in the wet bushes than play with his toys. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 katie | 9/28/2012

    " Great ideas, clearly explained. A lot of repetition (is he training the owners?) Overall, very much liked this. Would have only been better with a few more useful visuals and maybe some real-life examples. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marnie | 9/22/2012

    " I love this book. A lot of what he says is in direct conflict to what the Dog Whisperer says . . . so I'm not sure who is right on some things. "
