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.

Excellent! Highly recommend to any new dog owner!

Zak George is one of the most engaging and effective dog trainers I've seen in the public eye. His complete immersion in positive reinforcement training is so refreshing and highly successful. I discovered his book as a result of finding his YouTube channel. While training dogs via positive reinforcement training is a philosophy I already embraced, his ability to communicate how to utilize this training method is thorough, yet easy to understand. I would highly recommend this book to any person who is bringing home a new puppy or adult dog in to their lives. The audio narration of this book is pleasant, enjoyable and feels "comfortable and fitting." When you pair this book with the wonderful videos on his YouTube channel, you've got a fantastic combination. I think that most people will still benefit from working with group/private training classes at their local dog training facility that incorporates this same philosophy (simply for the benefit of having a skilled trainer guide you through the individual issues your dog may struggle with during training), but the information learned in this book is incredibly valuable and will set you up on a path towards success. I can't speak highly enough of this book and have already recommended it to friends. Thanks Zak for the wonderful resource! What you do is valued and appreciated!

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.

mostly common sense

More than half of the book is complete common sense and was pretty much useless to us. The emphasis is not on specific and practical advice but mostly broad basics that are too general.

Good for new dog owners.

Good book but very much aimed at people who have never owned a dog before. Would have liked more in depth instruction on all areas training.
