    "Buy it!"

    This was the third book I've listened to and, in my view the best yet. The first was a scientific view into dogs (yawn). The second was a celebrity with his own show.
    Maybe its because I'm a former soldier and appreciate the authors style but I found this book very informative. I recommend it.

    "Here's what's wrong with the book..."

    I am both a HUGE fan of Navy Seals and of dog psychology. So when I saw this book I was needless to say pretty damn excited. But I was pretty let down. Here's why:

    1. It doesn't actually teach you anything about training a dog the "Navy Seal Way". It merely has the same dog training advice you can get in any other book, only this one is poorly explained and there's far less information overall. The title is completely misleading. Although I suppose I should of seen that coming because to train a dog the "Navy Seal Way" would mean that you'd be training a war dog. Which is neither practical nor safe.

    2. This book should have been called "Dog Anatomy", because that's what it's mostly about. It goes into GREAT length about the science of nutrition, how it affects the dogs muscles, tooth care, bite force, raw diets vs. dry diets and the science behind each. The book goes on and on about the color of a dog's gums and what that means, tongue color, texture, eye discharge etc... etc... etc... It describes every possible health scenario, and then proceeds to describe every possible symptom and every possible cure, no matter how rare or obscure. I'm not a vet, nor do I aspire to be one. I wanted to learn about dog training, not dog anatomy.

    3. His training philosophies are sound, but poorly explained.

    4. Narrator was a bit sing-songy for me. He sounded like he was talking to children.

    When he was talking about training, the book was good. But honestly maybe only 20-30% of the book is about training. The rest is about how to be a vet. It left me very disappointed.

    "Good Book"

    I really enjoyed this book, recommend it to anyone with a dog. Most of the advice is great to help you understand a dog, and why it does some of the things they do. Narration is giod as well makes it very enjoyable.

    "Fantastic for any dog owner!"

    Great book for a dog handler or any dog owner. Great detail and explanation regarding how dogs interpret the world through senses which leads to putting displayed behavior into context.
