Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Best book on adopting and training dogs!"

    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.

    "A bit preachy"

    Zak has great training ideas and videos on YouTube, but this book, especially the first five chapters, is a bit tedious and preachy. It doesn't get into any of the good training stuff till later in the book. I'd be cautious about buying this book if you have read other Dog-Training books.

    Story
    "Not for new dog owners"
    Would you try another book from Zak George and/or Zak George?

    No I would not, far to biased in his teachings


    Has Zak George’s Dog Training Revolution turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Possibly, not sure until I go through one by another author


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Zak George?

    He actually did a rather good job in narrating, not to bad.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Zak George’s Dog Training Revolution?

    anything and everything he did to substantiate his own personal bias in training by using corroborating evidence and ignoring the vast amounts of research and data that disagreed with his stance.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a first time dog owner DO NOT read this book.If you are a past dog owner looking for a bit of training advice, take this book with a grain of salt,Aside from his initial PetSmart plug in the beginning he did an ok job with relating training and care tactics. I whole heartedly agree with him on not using punishment devices and caring for your pet as an sane rational human being would treat their 4 year old child. I disagree with how he substantiated some of his own bias on dog mentality which flies in the face of great amounts of research proving the exact obvious. This is truly a case of ignoring counter data because you do not agree with the findings and quoting flawed data because it does agree with you.One needs to care for and treat your new family member as a just that, a family member. Many of his training tactics were very straight forward and some of them enlightening, as if to say, why did I not think of that? If he had stuck with training and did not step on his personal high horse this could have been a great teaching book. To the author:My advice, re-write it and stay away from personal bias, stick with training.While I do not agree with your "pack mentality" thoughts I would love to have a dialog in order to understand better where you are coming from on it and why.
