Train Your Dog: Teach Yourself
Average rating
1 / 5
Not worth it
February 20th, 2013
This book is highly contradictory and the author did no research on dog or wolf pack behavior when writing it. Wolves do give orders to their subordinates look it up and if the dog can generalize aggression why can't it generalize anything else? Plus, it neglects the fact that Though ppl do work for money many ppl also work for free doing volunteer work for theories enjoyment of it so why must our dogs always be payed with food? Can't they just enjoy the work? Try another book. Wish I could get my money back.
