Format: Paperback
I have bought many dog associated books in the past but this is a must for anyone who really want to understand their dog. Although it is easy to dip in and out of I think its worth reading throughout in order to gain a full understanding of your dog. If you are reading this review its because you are genuinely interested in what your dog feels and how you can relate to each other and this book will certainly help you to do all of that. Im sure if you buy it you wont be disappointed but thats just my opinion!!

this book is ok, although to be fair it didnt answer many of the questions I had. That said it has been useful enough to me, but I cant stay its particularly stunning! found out more from reading a dog training magazine, which has worked instantly.
