Publisher's Summary

Dogs are the most social animals on the planet, second only to humans in their ability to read and understand emotion. Even chimps and bonobos, our closest genetic relatives, are no match for dogs when it comes to social cognition.

Jennifer Arnold understands this better than anyone, having spent the past 25 years training service dogs for people with disabilities at Canine Assistants. She is a pioneer in the emerging field of "bond-based" dog training, and her methods have overturned the conventional wisdom, which holds that dogs must learn to obey external cues like "sit", "stay", and "heel." In contrast, Arnold's groundbreaking methodology, bond-based choice teaching, rests on the belief that dogs are social learners, and they can be taught to make choices and interpret what we want from them, as opposed to simply following commands.

    "changes your relationship with your pup"

    this is an excellent book. the philosophy is so simple.... I just wish Jennifer Arnold could have offered some tips on using this philosophy with shelter dogs in an environment that is so constantly high-stress.

    "Love is all you need"

    I've read thik about 20 times. I think that's a great deal as it is I don't typically read read read read a book you for months. So much my life is about dog training these days medical dogs for his particularly and as you can see from the number of times I've reviewed Jennifer earnings information in this latest book it as a runaway first place. For me I was not mentally prepared to except it's message until after I dread her prior books about twice or three times each now it is my "don't know" if you will. If your intensity mentally approximates mine I would say to you this is a must read enjoy.
