This is a must for all dog owners and dog lovers out there.
Graeme Sims knows his dogs and much can be learned from reading his book, in particular should you be thinking of taking on a puppy from a working breed.
The Dog Whisperer should be read by every dog owner for it is impartial , making no exaggerated claims and could go a long way to helping you understand how your dog thinks,
I found the chapter dealing with rescue dogs and the one on vets , extremely good , and typical of my own experiences during my years as an R.S.P.C.A. warden.

As a teacher here in the countryside I couldn't help seeing so many parallels with humans and dogs. I have recently had a student teacher come up and ask for some advice about working in a tough ole boarding school environment. I directed him in the usual directions, offered websites, reading material.... and also gave him a copy of this book. He looked mildly surprised but he came back to me today and told me he could completely understood why I gave it him and it was the most useful of all the aides I'd given him....funny that.
The thing is Sims seems to have an approach to all things that is centred around patience, care and love. He reenforces these things constantly and seems to 'invite' the dogs to do things rather than bark orders and use force. He is not either suggesting that it will be a short road without a lot of work; its time consuming and requires effort but the rewards are well worth it.
Get this if you want to read a witty, touchingly sentimental, practical and rewarding book that will help you train your dog. Also though, its a superb read for those without a four legged friend; it tells us how much things can be achieved with a healthy dose of tolerance, compassion and time....two books in one. A Bargain.
