As a canine behaviourist I am often asked which books I recommend for clients. The honest answer was in fact, very few. There is a plethora of training guides, books and manuals on the market which mostly seem to confuse most dog owners! Now there are many I recommend, this is one book of them, I just ignore the stuff where it says 'pack leader'! It is laid out in a simple yet effective manner enabling the reader to see exactly what behaviour is being shown and the explantions Brenda makes are easily understood. I actively encourage owners and clients to learn their canine friends language to reach a better level of understanding of their dog; this book is a valuable tool for that learning.
