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 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.

this book was written in stilted language, hard to get excited about. For the most part, the ideass here were less than useful and in some cases peculiar. Read morePublished on Sept. 18 2011 by Levendis
