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
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. Everything will turn out okay if I just keep working ...more
As usual, Pat Miller delivers amazing insights in this book. Pat's training methods (socialization, clicker training and positive reinforcement) are tried and true - on malleable puppies and dogs with unfortunate pasts.

Pat Miller's contributions to the field of positive dog training have always been leading edge and extremely helpful to dog guardians.

The ideal reader would be someone contemplating adoption as the suggestions for handling ...more
Rescue Me!
Noted dog trainer Pat Miller shares many great tips for training a "do-over dog" - a dog that's been rescued, found as a stray, or has developed behavior problems.
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!

Great book. I skimmed and hit the highlights because it was a library book and I think it's worth buying!
