This review is from: Bones Would Rain from the Sky: Deepening Our Relationships with Dogs (Hardcover)
Though not a training manual, this book teaches you to appreciate your dog for himself and trains you to watch out for subtle canine signals which your dog is always sending out to try and communicate with us if only we'd listen. It makes sense really, we all know that a bite comes after a raised lip, then exposure of teeth and possibly more signals before this final desperate step to get you to pay attention.
There is much more than aggression to this book of course and I know I'll read it again when I need reminding to lose my ego and 'See the dog'. It has changed and deepened my relationship with my dog in such a way that I wasn't reading the book thinking the author had magic powers I couldn't possibly imitate.
Possibly the most enjoyable, practicle and life affirming book I have ever read.
