Celebrity dog trainer, YouTube sensation, and Animal Planet star Zak George presents a next-generation guide that uses his infectiously energetic style to teach dog-lovers everything they need to know about raising and training their unique pup.
Zak George is a new type of dog trainer. His fresh approach puts a strong emphasis on the relationship with the individual dog - informed by breed-specific traits - allowing people to treat the root cause of behavior issues rather than the symptoms and teach their dogs faster without the use of punishments or stress. For the first time, George has distilled all the information from his hundreds of videos into one master guide that covers everything from play biting and potty training to leash pulling and unwanted barking and jumping. As a bonus, listeners will be able to visit his YouTube channel to see real-life demonstrations of techniques described in the book, providing a truly modern listening experience.

I've been a fan of Zak's YouTube videos for a while and have used them to guide me as I welcomed and trained my lab/hound/collie mix Lucas with incredible success (keep in mind, he is very energetic and crazy). I've been eagerly awaiting the release of this book on Audible since I'm huge into audiobooks, but hate sitting down and reading physical books, and I was not disappointed.
Zak George provides the best advice for raising and caring for a dog, and listening to this audio book was a breeze as Zak narrates in the same tone and voice as his easy to watch YouTube videos.
Being someone who was raised around family dogs that were trained with choke-collars and Cesar Milan style dominance training (which was never really successful), Zak's approach to dog training is very refreshing. My dog Lucas is very receptive to the positive reinforcement training that Zak promotes, and I love the trusting relationship being built between us in the process.
Definitely worth a listen, and I will certainly recommend it to my friends and family that own dogs.
