Cant praise this book and Ian Dunbar enough!!! everyone should read and get to understand how you dog would see a situation. Makes life so much easier when you can take a step back and view what you are doing from your dogs perspective!!! Fantasticly humane techniques, and proves there really is no need to ever punish your dog, Love it, backs up how i train and all my apparently namby pamby methods!!! and shows that a real qualified expert who not only has years of experience and qualifications is training dogs positively without punishment and getting results, if your getting a puupy or even if you have an older dog that 'wont do as its told' by the end of this book you will have stood yourself in the corner, maybe even slapped your own wrist and started to implement methods and will be seeing how quickly your dog will 'do as its told' as you will now be starting to communicate with your dog in a way he understands rather than taliking a foreign language to him and then blaming hm for 'not doing as he is told'
