Product Description

Product Description

In the dog training book Bonding with your Rescue Dog: Decoding and Influencing Dog Behavior, you'll find a gentle approach to understanding your rescue dog and learn how to influence his or her behavior. You'll also come to understand the joy of rescue dogs and become better prepared to enter into that special relationship that only occurs between a dog and his or her human family. Your discoveries will include:

• learning the various types and personalities that shelter or rescue dogs exhibit
• understanding what to expect when you bring your rescue dog home
• discovering how to help your dog transition into the family
• exploring what to do during the first 24 hours you are together
• gaining tips on potty training, using crates and kennels, and more
• examining how to handle negative behaviors
• receiving additional training and caring in a 27-page bonus GOOD MANNERS TRAINING GUIDE

Don't have a dog yet but you're ready to open up your home and heart to that special dog? You couldn't do any better than taking in one of the many rescue dogs that are in shelters and with rescue groups waiting for their "forever homes." While puppies are certainly available, there are so many dogs that are still in growing and in the full throes of puppyhood or have reached their adult maturity and are in need of homes. Senior dogs who have been abandoned or have suffered the loss of their owner are in great need, too. Consider all your options and then make your decision. In the process, be sure and read BONDING WITH YOUR RESCUE DOG: DECODING AND INFLUENCING DOG BEHAVIOR, as well as the free 27-page bonus book Good Manners Training Guide. You'll be better prepared to enter into that special relationship that only occurs between a dog and his or her human family.

The author has lived with dogs all her life and shares stories of her own dogs. She is a huge advocate of rescue dog adoption and encourages everyone to see what they can do to help the many dogs in dire need today and every day. She's studied dogs, read about them, handled them, and received guidance and training from professional dog trainers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much I disagree with to write it all! 21 Oct. 2014
By sue666
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm well aware that there are as many dog training theories as there are dogs! Each one has, in someone's opinion, good points. Those same points can be considered very bad by someone else.
In my opinion a lot of this little book is bad. Check (choke) chains? Electronic collars? Whilst talking about positive training!
I have had rescue dogs all my life, some have been very easy to train, others less so! But I have never considered resorting to an instrument of torture for any of them.
Also I love my dogs but since I routinely have more than one at a time I feel a "me" place, where it is understood I can have a break, to be very important. My "me" space is my bedroom, so I would not consider bringing a crated, newly rescued dog upstairs, to be good practice.
All these thing are, of course, my opinion.
But in my opinion kick out the shock collar and double up the sausage buying.
They'll love you for it. And that's what it's all about.

4.0 out of 5 stars rescur dog or rescue owner? 13 April 2014
By walter kane - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this is a book for people that are thinking about adopting a new puppy or are a first time dog owner.
it;s a must for first time owners and should be read by everyone thinking of adopting a new dog.
even if you've had a dog since the begining of time, read this. you'll find things that you may have forgotten
or even something new. Oh yes, you are not the owner of that rescue dog your thinking about,
you are a partner with your new buddy.
the more love you try and give him the more he'll give back to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Both heartwarming and practical - a must read! 18 Feb. 2014
By Anne - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Every one of our dogs has been lovingly adopted, accepted with open arms, idiosyncrasies and all. We've always just muddled through and done our best, but getting this book has been a revelation to me - now I actually have some clear, practical advice! I wish I had read this book before adopting our dogs but even reading it now is giving me new insights into their behaviour.

Apart from the valuable content, this book hooked me right from the start due to the obvious love that Vikk has for dogs; it absolutely oozes off the pages. She's mixed in personal stories about dogs she's known throughout her life and it's an absolute joy to read real life examples.

Highly recommended to all dog lovers as well as those considering adopting a dog!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dog lover 12 Mar. 2014
By Amy Ryan - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I have six dogs so it goes without saying I am a dog lover. I love reading about dogs too and this book is great for anyone thinking of adopting a dog as some people are just not suited to dogs! This book details what will be needed after you pick your new pet, how to look after them, what to expect from them and of course how to bond with them.

The book also cover house training and basic dog training - tips and answers to regular questions like "Why doesn't my dog respond to training"

A great read full of information and I highly recommend it for anyone with dogs or thinking of adopting.

This is a fantastic book that offers a ton of reliable resources! The author does a wonderful job at explaining everything you need to know about adopting a dog. If you follow these exact steps, you'll become a better pet owner with a better understanding of your pet. I especially liked how she outlined the entire process: things to know before adoption, bringing the pet home, what to expect, transitioning, and much more! Such a great read for all pet owners! Highly recommended!
