It is a great read! A must for anyone who has a rescue dog that poses so tricky traits. My boxer/pit bull cross has a fear of loud noises, men, cars, trucks and much, much more. We are making great headway, but weather and travel have stymied our dog obedience classes.

I have read the Dog Whisperer books and they are good, but often he doesn't address some of the same issues I'm facing. I found this book very attainable and readable. After a short time trying to integrate some ideas I have seen...more

Pat Miller doesn't shy away from what makes "Do Over Dogs" so difficult to work with but easy to love. Her philosophy of positive behavior therapy is present throughout the book. What I loved was the actual tips on how to work with or train a do-over dog. I also loved how the book ended with people sharing their own experiences with rescue dogs, because after reading the book and struggling with my own new addition, I really needed that hope.

The ideal reader would be someone contemplating adoption as the suggestions for handling...more

For those of us who have adopted dogs from the shelter or other rescue organizations, this book gives a detailed and honest look at some of the problems you might face. There is also a ton of useful information, practical advice and training tips. My favorite part, though, was all of the stories of real "do over" dogs at the end. I had to get out the box of Kleenex!

I love the way Pat Miller thinks and I love the fact that she never gives up. Just with I had read this before I botched up a rescue by introducing her into the house the wrong way. Well, you live and learn and thanks to this book, I will be much better prepared!
