I agree with a lot of the comments already stated. I also am buying it in bulk to hand out with every rescue dog I place. I found it agrees with my methods of training and is so easy to read that the adoptive families might actually bother to do so -- hopefully someone in the car will read it on the way home with their new dog. It does lack specific help with serious problems that many rescue dogs may have. But hopefully, those problems have been addressed and worked through by the rescue group prior to placement. And the person who did that training will further advise the new owners on the care and special needs of that particular dog. This is a great general book. And priced so that everyone can own a copy!

I found this book to be useful when I adopted a shelter dog a few years ago, and ordered another copy for my parents, who recently adopted and adult dog from a shelter. Although not the most in-depth training book available, it helped all of us understand the psyche of the dogs better, and eased some of the confusion and frustrations (for the owner and the dog) that can be associated with the experience. Our dogs are now happy, well-trained family members, and this book certainly contributed to that.

A straight-forward and quick read about training your dog with great pictures that will help a preteen (8-12) and older children and adults understand what needs to be done. I agree that it lacks the information about rescue or rehomed dogs.A better source for a rehomed/rescue dog is Second Start: Creative Rehoming by Jacqeline O'Neil.
