Helpful, insightful & informative, this easy to read book is a must before embarking on a dog training program. Understand just how much damage you could be doing to your canine friend by jerking on his lead & losing your temper. This might not be the bible for a caring dog training program, but it comes close.

I appreciated the detailed explanation of what it takes to learn something - many repetitions plus variable rewards and why that works; also how to tell when you should move on. It was nice to go from a broad overview of all the components of the dogs life, food, schedule, etc. to the specific training details.

If you are totally frustrated with trying to find a compassionate yet effective way to train your dog, this is the book for you. I learned so much about my dog and how to train him while making it fun for both of us. I highly recommend this book. "The Dog Whisperer" was a Godsend for me and Rocky.

A. Neder from California said that the book recommends ignoring bad behavior. There's more to it than that. A little background in operant conditioning, like the book Don't Shoot The Dog by Karen Pryor can help. It's not that you allow bad behavior and allow it to continue. You instead learn how not to reinforce bad behavior. Sometimes you can do this by ignoring it. Sometimes other steps must be taken.
