Working with a 10 week old Malinois puppy using this book recommended by our puppy's breeder, I am amazed at how quickly and fantastically he is learning - and it's all fun and productive! Love this book!

HASH(0xa2b32318) out of 5 stars Excellent!!! July 5 2006
By Jasmin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book not only easy to read, but the authors genuine love and appreciation for her dogs is evident on every page. The information regarding how and why dogs react to emotional energy, body posture, breathing and even eye contact is fascinating, and the training techniques in part 3 are extremely useful. The underlying and best quality about this book is how the fun times and the relationship a person has with their dog is the most important part of dog ownership.

HASH(0xa2b3236c) out of 5 stars This book is for anyone interested in dogs. Oct. 24 2006
By Michael T. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one incredible book. It is exactly as the title states, Companion to Competition. The book starts out with basic rules or concepts that apply universally to teaching your dog good house manner or competitive obedience. The techniques are foolproof and can be easily incorporated into every day interactions with your dog. I started reading this book when my most recent dog was 8 weeks old. This book has allowed me to achieve a bond and level of trust with my dog that I did not realize was possible. I have read many dog training books and this book is the best by far.

It has now been 7 years since I first read this book and I continue to rely upon it's methods and concepts in training my own dogs. We now compete competitively in varios dog sports and 99% of the trainers/handlers utilize these concept in their training.

By Catherine Molligi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was recommended by the German Shepherd breeder whom we bought our puppy from. Not only good training, but explains about the dog from puppy on. You and your dog will be much happier. This book is easy to understand and techniques are simple and WORK. You have a much happier puppy. Even worked with our 8 year old GSD. Positive training only - no snapping of collar, etc. A must have for any dog owner!!!

By Marbles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very well written, one of the best dog training books on the market. I'm not a completely positive trainer, however this book is still excellent and not preachy like so many positive training books. Everyone who trains dogs should have this in their library.

HASH(0xa2b32b4c) out of 5 stars Read this book over and over! Dec 27 2007
By Gsullen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the best dog training book I have read amongst many, and yet it is so much more. It is a blueprint for a wonderful relationship of understanding with your dog. Written with a sense of humor that really struck my funny bone, it says so much that you can't absorb it all on the first pass. Read it again and again, and then use it for reference. You won't regret it!
