Our customer reviews

A very refreshing way of raising puppies - for someone like me who comes from a country where the term "dog psychology" would raise more than a few brows. Recently I adopted a troublesome puppy and this book gave me hope and practical tips on how to transform my little "imp" into a well-behaved dog. I recommend this book to all future dog owners. It's an absolute must-read!show more
