After looking for a long time for a book that would help me to train my dogs (that are both rescued) I was really pleased at last to find one specifically for this task. Whereas other books concentrate mainly on training puppies, this one addressed the issues behind the behaviours and offered realistic guidance for training adult dogs.

This is a great book if you are thinking about adopting a rescue dog or if you already have one with 'bad manners'. It is an enjoyable read and very imformative. Would strongly recommend.

Essential reading for those thinking of getting a rescue dog....the highs and lows, the choice, the upkeep. A good guide to dealing with a dog that has suffered trauma, and how to deal with the animal, bearing in mind the history that he/she has been through.
Thoroughly recommended.

Great insight to the rescue dog who has different needs and issues that puppies do not have. It was a great help to us before we rehomed our two new rescue dogs. I would recommend to anything thinking of rehoming a dog.

Even as an experienced dog owner I found this book to be a very valuable source of common sense advice when re-homing a dog. We had a great deal of experience with puppies but had never taken on an adult dog before. With this book we were able to prepare ourselves and our home to receive our new dog. The guidance on how to introduce the dog to its new environment and how to set the boundaries worked perfectly and we have had virtually no problems as a result. The text is well written and applies a common sense approach to the issues while providing practical advice and achievable solutions. With the help of this book you will be ready for your new pet and can anticipate and overcome issues before they become problems. As a result of applying the principals of the book George is now a happy dog in his new home after only 4 days with us.

This book has done what it says on the tin. Our rescue dog (Collie cross, 19 months old and with us for just 9 days) is testament to the advice given. Very slightly scientific, just sufficient to gain understanding, and with loads of practical advice unique to rescue dogs, I can thoroughly recommend this book. May I suggest that you buy it before you take the decision to rehome a dog; it will repay the time spent reading it.

I highly recommend reading this prior to visiting a rescue centre, adopting a rescue dog or even if you have already rescued your new member of the family. It gives great insight and knowledge you can definitely use at what ever stage you are at. I even found sections that I skimmed past because I thought I knew it already or didn't apply to me turned out to be not so at all when I finally decided to read them. Worth a read

We have a rescue dog and have found this book really useful to help break 'bad habits'.
Essential reading for anyone considering taking on a rescue dog and for those who already have one and need some guidance.
Highly recommended.

I couldn't be more pleased with this book it is easy to read and packed full of useful insight into the furry mind of man's best friend as well as informative instructions on how to better deal with doggy actions. The book is well laid out with great pictures and it's a joy to pick up. Well worth a read.
