Author, Mary Jean Alsina provides great and thoughtful insight into a dog's behavior. After reading this book you can too become a "dog whisper". I have trained dogs before including a guide dog for the blind. With good solid training, any dog can be a good dog. I agree with the information that the author writes in this book. You don't need to raise your voice to discipline your dog. I agree that all it does is install fear and not establish a good relationship with your dog. All my life with all of the dogs I have owned, I felt like they were my children and not seen as "just" dogs. So, I actually talk to them like they are people and with my most recent 3 dogs, you can catch me carrying conversations with them. They do understand me. I may not always use the standard commands of: sit, stay, down, etc. but my downs know what I am saying my the tone of my voice and respond to it. Any dog owner should check out this book. You don't need to spend tons of money on a trainer when you can pick up a copy of this book and learn with your dog on how to have a loving and respectful relationship for a long time. ( )
