    1. Johanna

      This book completely changed the way I think about dogs.Let me begin by saying that prior to this book, I was training (and I use that word very loosely) my dogs with the traditional punishment-based techniques. My dog at the time, a gentle Malamute/Siberian/Wolf mix was, as I was told, stubborn and disobedient (do you ever wish you could go back in time and kick yourself for being so stupid???). Also, because of his wolf breeding, I was told I needed to be the “alpha” or else he would becom [...]

      There's loads of great information in this book but accessing it requires great determination. It seems to me to be a bit of a jumble. AsI read it on my kindle I did not particularly relish having to jump back and forward from one chapter to another to get the answers I was looking for.

      This book completely changed the way I think about dogs. I happened upon it quite a few years ago, and thought it might be an interesting read. Wow, what an eye opener! I have to admit, when I first started flipping through the pages, I thought, not that clicker training stuff!, but the more I read, the more sense it began to make. Now, after years of putting this book to use, I can't imagine training my dog any other way. The Complete Idiots Guide To Positive Dog Training is my go-to book for d [...]

      This book really helped my husband and me when we took on two strays, a German Shepherd and Beagle. We found that "traditional" training (hitting and yelling) did not work, it tended to make things worse AND made us feel bad in the process. This book really opened our eyes to a new way to train. Ignoring and rewarding are the replacements for the hitting and yelling and it works 10 times faster, not to mention no one's feelings (or butts) get hurt.This book will help you bond with your dog and h [...]

      This book totally freaked me out when (6 years ago) I got Rufus. I bought the book not realizing that "positive dog training" was an actual method. I thought it was just a "positive" way to train your dog. All the clicker stuff just seemed weird to me. Needless to say i devised my own training methods. Having said that, it was an interesting read and my dogs are both a little naughty in their own special ways!!

      Didn't like the layout of the book. How to teach your puppy to not jump, bite or bark should have been a the beginning and not at the end. Some good tips but some not helpful. At times I felt this book would have been better used thrown at the puppy than for it's actual advice. Had to put it down for a few months then come back to it.

    7. Paul Smith

      While there is useful advice here and it's certainly worth a look, I found the matronly tone tiresome and the underlying premise that unless you do everything Mother Dennison says you're a dog hating manaic who routinely sets about their pet with a claw hammer increasingly annoying as the lessons wore on.

    8. Kelly

      I'm not entirely happy with this book. It has way too many opinions of the pros of positive dog training and the cons of "traditional" dog training. I do agree with the author's views, but I got the idea in the first chapter, already!

    9. Rachel Carr

      I'll probably never truly be finished with this book as long as I have dogs. So much good advice, this is a great reference book.

    10. Pam

      Great positive training book. Knew most of the I do but needed a refresher 'course' to help with my newest rescue dog. Now stop saying "no!"

    11. Mercurymouth

      Got a rescuewhat I like to call my moon doge is some sort of eskimo mix-SHUGGIE!! She needs some training- I hope this book helps, got good reviews.

    12. Mikelkpoet

      I dig this book, and plan to buy a copy of it.I especially want to learn to clicker train my dogs, Morisson, and Bundy, and this bookoffers insite into that.
