Publisher's Summary

Generations of dogs have been labeled training lemons for requiring actual motivation when all along they were perfectly normal. Numerous other completely and utterly normal dogs have been branded as canine misfits simply because they grew up to act like dogs. Barking, chewing, sniffing, licking, jumping up, and occasionally (just like people) having arguments are as normal and natural for dogs as wagging tails and burying bones. However, all dogs need to be taught how to modify their normal and natural behaviors to adjust to human culture. Sadly, all too often, when the dog's way of life conflicts with human rules and standards, many dogs are discarded and summarily put to death. That's quite the Culture Clash.

almost had to stop listening due to the performer

Performance is awful. Wrong inflections and emphasis; struggled to finish listening. Cringe inducing! A shame.

Cumbersome language, great perspective

the author head quirky turns of phrase and convoluted explanations that could have been much more simple and direct, particularly if when was going to use this as a training reference. I do however approve of her General adherence to positive discipline for dogs. she introduces some potential uses for aversive conditioning, what language was so murky I honestly didn't understand.

Best Dog behaviour dog book ever!

As a dog trainer I suggest this book to be read by all dog owners. Such clear and effective information is still extremely valuable, mainly in my country: Brazil. We do not need shoke collars or aversive training to teach our dogs, it’s all about the laws of learning.
