Here is yet another fabulous book by Patricia McConnell and Aimee Moore. I am a reward-based professional dog trainer and have been using their new book, "Family Friendly Dog Training- A Six Week Program for You and Your Dog", as a supplement to my basic training program. The chapters are arranged so each chapter covers one week of a six week program. I can never cover as much material as I want in an hour class, and this book allows me to provide a more comprehensive program to my students. It is loaded with training tips and up-to-date training methods, making it a must have for the novice dog owner's library. Every professional dog trainer should be offering this book to their students. It will add value and quality to your training program. It's an easy and fun read for the pet owner, very affordable, and not lengthy, so I find all of my students can take the time to read it. I love how Patricia and Aimee describe their own challenges and experiences making the book enjoyable and personal.
Patricia McConnell has been the most influential mentor in my career. I have learned so much through her books, videos and seminars, and have read her book "The Other End of the Leash" three times.
