Format: Paperback
This is an excellent all-round book for any dog owner, which covers everything from choosing the right breed and bringing your new puppy home, right through to training your dog to fetch your newspaper or deliver messages! Despite covering such a broad base, it still manages to go into plenty of detail on each subject.

It is well-written and has lots of glossy photos to illustrate all the points.

I would highly recommend it, especially if you are looking for just one book that will cover all you need to know.

Format: Paperback
Being new to owning a dog, I have purchased a number of books on dog training. This book is the best book I have seen to date (17th May 2010).
My dog (an 8 month old Black Labrador puppy) and myself are students at a well regarded dog school and have been awarded a Bronze Obedience Award by the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers (BIPDT).
The book re-enforces what we are and have learned on the course. I believe anybody reading the book and allowing sufficient time and patience will achieve an obedient and well trained dog. It takes time and effort and cannot be learned in a day!
Just be patient, follow each exercise carefully, most dogs I believe have a 10 to 15 minutes attention span so limit your training sessions to frequent short periods. The aim is for the owner to understand how a dog behaves and how the training is fun. Do not force the issue, go at the dog's pace, the author has not set out a timetable for achieving success, some dogs are quicker at picking things up than others, but every dog is trainable.

This is an excellent book, I feel that if I bought this book a few months back I could have saved money on the other training books.

I bought this book on the advice of the animal behaviourist I got in to help sort out my resource guarding dog. My dog and I have responded well to the extra training advice given in the book. Its full of good common sense advice and tips.

This book is really great - it starts from the very beginning of choosing the right pup for you - and goes into great detail about theaching that pup right from wrong, and quite literally training a superdog! All the while this book entertains you with some fantastic photographs.

If you're reading these reviews because you're researching which training manual to buy, look no further! This is a fantastic training book - written with a lovely, encouraging tone and based entirely on a positive, reward-based system. It is very comprehensive and the many photos make each technique clear and easy to follow. I am using it with my slightly wayward Lab, Max, and we started seeing results right from our first session. I couldn't recommend this book highly enough - it's brilliant and is equally suited to new and experienced owners alike.
