My dog is very lead reactive, i.e. barks and lunges at other dogs. This slim volume gives great advice on how to manage as well as improve the problem. Also gives guidance on what to do when other dogs run loose around your problem. Highly informative and recommended if this is your dog.

I've used this book to help my reactive dog be able to see other dogs without barking. The advice is clearly written, and easy enough for a novice dog owner to follow. There is lots of similar advice available on the web, but this booklet does the best job of detailing exactly the steps you should take, without jargon or complexity.

I don't know how many times I've recommended it to people who've found themselves with a reactive dog (a dog who barks and lunges when he sees other dogs, i.e. "reacts" to them). But even more often, I've wanted to recommend it to people I see on the streets as I walk every day, people who are struggling to get their dog to stop barking at mine, who is behaving like an angel as we pass! So I'm seriously thinking of getting some cards made to hand out as we pass, recommending this book to people who I know are at their wits' end.

our lurcher girl barked, lunged and generally went beserk when we met other dogs, this book has been fantastic. We now have lovely relaxing walks, and whilst we are not quite there yet, she has made fantastic progress in two weeks.

brilliant book. crammed with effective practical and humane approaches to tackling dog - dog aggression. Gave me a lot more confidence to help my own dog, now recommend it to anyone adopting a dog with similar issues from us.

My Akita was extremely dog reactive, made worse by being seriously attacked by 2 off leash dogs when she was younger, It got to the point where I couldn't walk her in public places where there were other dogs at all. I've tried so many different methods to try to be able to walk her in public without her wanting to attack every other dog we come across but until this book, all else had failed.
Its only been a few weeks using this method and we've still got some work to do, but since using the methods described in this book, she's gotten to the stage where I've been able to enrol her in obedience classes, in a whole room full of other dogs, and she hasn't shown any aggression to any of them and walks past them easily. She still has the occasional problem when are out on the beach and there are dogs that are off leash and running and barking, but it's more like she gets excited and wants to chase them, whereas before she'd act like she wanted to kill them!!
She isn't treat orientated or toy orientated so it took a while to find something to keep her focus, now I wait until after walks to feed her so she's hungry while out, and take chopped up sausages out with me. The sausages definitely keep her focused

Patricia Mc Connell's books were recommended to me by a dog training forum and I'm so glad I've discovered her. This book was exactly what I needed to help keep my terrier mix from spiralling out of control at the sight of another dog. As the authors say in the book, it is designed to help deal with dogs who need help whilst walking on the lead, it's not a catchall dog aggression book.The tone of the book is supportive and you don't feel as if you are being lectured. The strategies are practical and broken down into simple steps. The authors encourage you to work with your dog rather than chastising it and knowing that both authors have Ph.Ds made me feel that I was following the most modern, positive methods backed by scientific evidence. If you have a dog with issues on the lead this book is well worth a read.

Interesting read for those of us who love our dogs but perhaps don't always understand their behaviour. This book was recommended to me by an Animal Behaviour Therapist and has proved a good purchase, easy to read and understand.
