I love Zak, but I think I learned more from his Youtube videos and his first book from this one. This one mostly feels like repeated information from his last book.

But I mean, it's still great information, so there's that.

After reading The Art of Raising a Puppy, I would describe Zak George’s training approach as the slow, ethical alternative. I appreciate Zak’s message about inside out training, as opposed to outside in—training that teaches a dog to think and choose to act a certain way, rather than training that forces a dog to act a certain way. He gives very thorough information on teaching basic obedience skills and how to break these lessons into tiny steps that will build the dog’s ability to concentrate ...more

I really enjoyed listening to this audible book. I came across Zak's training methods from random youtube videos searching. So far I have found his way of teaching dogs not to pulling leash most effective compared with other training methods such as Cesar's slip lead method. I have noticed my extremely prone to pulling westie starting not pulling the leash, walking right beside me (heeling it is!) and paying attention to me. Overall this is a great book to read/listen if you really would like to ...more

3.5 stars.

I began reading this one before his Dog Training Revolution (DTR) book. Since I'm preparing for life with a puppy, and don't know what, if any, her training problems will be, I switched to Zak's other title. That one is much more helpful for new puppy owners, and I found it quite useful.

This book contains much of the same information he presents in the DTR title, though he expounds upon training issues. I like the advice and how Zak gives it, though I will wait on reading more of this

Exceptionally written with a relatable, easy to read format. Anyone who has a dog can pick this book and either skim for the contents that they are looking for or read from start to finish. Tricks and behaviors are easy to understand and practice. The book itself is very insighful when it comes to understanding dogs and their psychology. While the book is upbeat, it's also realistic and promises results only if dog owners are responsible and consistent.

Really enjoyed it, had our new puppy for 2 weeks now and just reading all the good advice has made me feel alot more confident about training and feel like I have more realistic expectations of ages and stages too. Will keep referring back to all the training tips as we need to work through different issues.
