5.0 out of 5 stars Essential book for dog owners - easy to read, humane, and effective, 5 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Train Your Dog Positively: Understand Your Dog and Solve Common Behavior Problems Including Separation Anxiety, Excessive Barking, Aggression, Housetraining, Leash Pulling, and More! (Paperback)
If I had to choose just one book about dog behaviour and training, it would be this one! I've been interested in dog behaviour for the past few years and have read every book I could get my hands on - this one tops them all by far, providing a thorough and easy to understand guide to canine origins, behaviour, training techniques, and more.

Victoria's book covers essential information about canine behaviour, language and how to train effectively and humanely. Most importantly, she clears up some of the many misconceptions regarding dogs: dominance, pack theories and the misguided application of wolf behaviour onto dogs. Many people end up on the wrong path after being convinced they must 'dominate' their dog and everything will then fall into place. Victoria sets the story straight once and for all, explaining in an almost effortless way the latest research and information in regards to these important facts about dogs.

Victoria is one of the more modern trainers who is showing the world just how damaging punishment and pack theories are to our canine friends. Highly recommended book in an age where there are so many opinions, theories and bad dog trainers out there.
