The parts that get left on the cutting room floor in the dog training TV shows. The stories they DON'T share in training books.I wasn't disappointed. It had me snickering in several stories, with my favorite being "Impeccably Trained Owner Awards." This was a fun read!Dog training tips are sprinkled throughout, and I especially enjoyed the photos that accomp [...]

    2. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the anecdotes of the author’s experience with dog training. She gives valuable insight into a dog’s behavioural problems and what is required by pet owner’s to rectify them. What amazed me was that the dog owners mentioned in the book loved their pet(s), but they hadn’t thought to invest quality time in training. We humans are trained—right. Pets should be too. Are you an impeccably trained owner? I highly recommend pet owners read this light hearted and so [...]

    7. A great quick peek into the life of a dog psychologist / trainer. I really enjoyed the stories, even though they were short I thought they were both funny and informative at the same time.
