Thank you zak

My 5 year old border collie/heeler mix, was having tons of behavioral issues such as aggressiveness, snapping at dogs and kids. We tried one dog trainer who taught us to “train with discipline” and we saw her behavior get even worse. When my wife found Zak’s YouTube videos we gave it a try and now 3 years later and have bought 2 of his books now she’s on a speedy recovery and has started playing with a few dogs! Thank you again for everything!

dont bother with this just go to his you tube vids

it's an ok book but doesn't really provide much training advice. its full of half suggestions or really vague tips, nearly every problem ends with 'go check out this you tube video' rather then him taking time to give you details in specific training.

Brilliant!

I listened to this book on Audible. having also listened to zak's first book (which I also really enjoyed) I would.say that this one was the best fit for what I needed.

I have recently got 2 puppies and have begun to train them this book.covers all the areas of training you will need and gives you guidance on how to address problem behaviours also.

Brilliant book for anyone wanting to train their dog positively.

Great Book thou Time stamps would be great.

This book was great. The slow-talking and reasoning behind doing everything are great.
The only issue is there are no timestamps anywhere so I can't navigate to certain things I want without quickly skipping around the chapters. this would not be an issue with a hardback book, however, I don't know a hardback and only have the audible book.

Non-the less I love the book but have found my self quickly taking down timestamp times for certain things I want to readdress at a later date.
