For anyone driven to the brink by his or her canine, author Randy Grim presents this unlikely, but practical guide. Don't Dump the Dog is brimming with Grim's acerbic wit and good-natured take on doggy behavioral issues, giving dog owners a chance to relax and share a laugh. Performer Erik Synnestvedt is bright and playful, seamlessly blending clever quips with more serious subject matter concerning abandoned dogs and overcrowded shelters. A decorated advocate for four-legged friends, Grim backs up his practical advice with years' worth of research and instructive anecdotes.
Good advice - "Dear Abby" style - for bad dog owners.
Do you want to dump your dog because he tries to escape your yard? Barks too much? You-know-whats in the house? Doesn’t play well with others? Chewed up your favorite pair of shoes? You wouldn’t be the first person asking to “return” your pet. And dog rescuer Randy Grim has heard every reason under the sun. But before you load Fido into the back of your car, listen to this book.
In it, Randy addresses the concerns of dog guardians everywhere by responding to letters that he’s actually received. With humor, and from his vast experiences with abandoned dogs, he reveals exactly what you can do to remain calm and fix every bad behavior problem. (Even if it means dumping your husband instead of the dog.)

I have bought several training books and this was one of the best read out there.
This is a really high quality recording.
One note about dog training every trainer is different. No matter what book you get you will have to use and implement techniques that you are comfortable with. With that said this book is not ground breaking . But the delivery is great. It is funny and will give you some great insight into the word of rescues.
He was pretty funny. I laughed quite a bit. Unfortunately, I was looking for useful info. He left HUGE holes. Train the dog to play fetch. HOW? I have tried and tried. My dog has her own crazy way of playing, none of which is useful to me.
He was trying a little hard.
No thoughts one way or the other.
This book is great,A little laugh,A little dog raising tips and a lot of solid advice about what to expect before you get a dog.Think about it before you adopt, Dogs are not disposable they are for the life of the dog, hopefully 15 years or more! What a good book !!
