Format: Paperback
I knew there would be a lot of baggage involved when I adopted a young greyhound who had been neglected, starved, and beaten prior to rescue. Although his fear did not make him agressive it did pose problems with daily activities: loud sounds, anyone walking behind him on the street, men, angry voices on TV, the clicking sounds from soda cans, cameras, or ball-point pens, anything remotely shaped like a stick...the list of things that completely paralized him went on and on.
My sister, who is active in Aussie rescue, suggested this booklet (she was coping with a rescued fear-biter at the time). The suggestions in this book enabled us both to help our very different animals blossom into the confident, well-mannered, loving, envy-inspiring dogs they are today.
Of special help to me was understanding that 'comforting' behaviour on my part just gave my dog the certainty that there really was something to worry about. As soon as I changed that he began to act less anxious. When rescued he was never supposed to be allowed to be an only dog because of his nervous anxiety and self-destructive coping methods. So when my elder grey passed some months back we worried about regression. Thanks to this booklet he is more happy, playful, and calm than ever before. He even lies tummy-up on the grass a few feet away as my husband swings his golf clubs and works on his game. His utter indifference to a big stick was something I never imagined possible and would never have happened without the wisdom in this little booklet.
Thank you, Ms. McConnell!

I ordered several Patricia McConnell books at the same time, based on reviews by other people and/or descriptions of the books. I was not disappointed. Each book is clear and helpful, easy to read and understand. Well worth the price.

The 'book' is more like an essay in size. Great information, though. I think this is a good read, even if your dog doesn't have cautious signs all the time. Every dog has a cautious moment, though, and it would be good to read those and know what to do.

This isn't really a "book" per se, but more of a booklet. It IS filled to the very last page with great information for owners of shy or aggressive dogs. My puppy was a bit shy (not a biter, though, thank goodness), and I used some of the tips in this little book and, lo and behold, I now have a much more confident, happy dog. He still won't walk up to a complete stranger for petting, but he's a lot more tolerant of them coming a little closer without cowering behind my legs. I absolutely recommend this!

Wonderful, to the point. Easy to follow. All around good book! I suggest all her books to my clients. Her books may seem short but they have a huge amount of information. Don't pass these books over just because they are short!

Just be aware that this is a small booklet, and not an actual book. It surprised me when it arrived in the mail since I was expecting a soft bound book. The information is helpful, but I could certainly benefit from a larger compilation of examples and tips.

This book is really short, but the ideas put forth could be very helpful to anybody with a fearful dog.

I believe the author has really got something here, but I was not able to put it into practice, because I realized my dog is not fearful as I had thought. My dog has a different problem, so I was not able to try out the exercises.

This book does have practicable plans in place for the owner of a fearful dog to work on with their dog.
