It's hard to give this book a scale review as I have strong and mixed feelings, but I'll have to settle it with two stars. Please note that this pertains only to the first section of the book on guard dog training, not the section on obedience training, which I did not read.

5 stars: This book is an excellence text on the principles of learning, doing far more for teaching the best of behavioral psychology than Pavlov or Skinner ever did. Koehler does an excellent job drawing from his experience

Koehler had experience training THOUSANDS of working dogs for the military and police departments across the country.

This book consists of two parts: part one deals with the selection and training of a guard dog breed, part two deals with the Koehler Method of Dog Training Novice Level. An excellent method to train any dog to off-leash reliability.

Recommends it for: Jenifer, Heather
I'm reading this book on the recommendation of my father, who trained about ten dogs over the years I believe--and they were all wonderful pets. SO, I'm only reading the second half--which is on obedience training, and we'll see how it goes. He does have an interesting tone--almost defensive at times. I'm guessing that when he wrote this book (1967), he was being critisized?
