This book has a lot of information, but a lot of it I already knew. I like how the chapters are set up with the ones you'll use most often, or first, at the beginning of the book, followed by chapters discussing further training and dog behavior toward the back.

GREAT book on dog training. Uses positive reinforcement, explains How and Why it works, and gives great examples of how to attain an obedient, clever dog.

Highly reccommend to anybody with a dog, and even without one!

I'm still trying to get Dona my out-of-control Lab to finish this book but she just won't focus.

Lots of good information, but some of it unclear or unrealistic.
