3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but i would recommend something else 13 July 2008
By L. Ficks - Published on Amazon.com

This is a good book on a topic that needs much more information out there. that being said, it's basically just a diary of her training sessions. She takes you through each training session with her reactive dog class and describes the progress of each dog each day.

Pros: Great to see the ups and downs of each dog. Also nice to see how different dogs needed different things

Cons: If you're looking for things to do with your own dog, there's no apendix that explains the exercises she does. It's sometimes hard to get a good picture, even though there are diagrams. Also, it can be confusing trying to remember which dog was which. In addition, it's very repetitive and doesn't keep one's interest.

Overall: I recommend the book Controlled Unleashed instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wondered What a Reactive Dog Class Looked Like? 21 Feb 2008
By Tami M. Hawes - Published on Amazon.com
Ali's Focus Not Fear walks you through the classes of a group of dogs over a period of seven months. You get to meet the dogs and their issues as well as their handlers. Then Ali details how the classes went over that time, and the ups and downs that happen over that time.

Training behaviors or dog behaviors are in bold through the sections, so if you wanted, you could skim for those in the training logs. They are also easily indexed in the back of the book for quick page finds.

Photographs! Tons of photos in here and not hard to see black and white ones but full beautiful color ones. Diagrams are also in color!

Ali was our guest author in November 2007 at CSDogBookReview for this book, check out our archives for that visit.

This book is like having your very own support group-next best thing to being in the class. Thanks to Ali and her clients, I dont feel embarrassed when I take out my "reactive" boy! I'm focusing on him focusing on me-one step at a time.
