I finished this book with a feeling of despair because we already know that things are bad for dogs and we already know what the remedies are, but humanity appears to lack the will to defend the creature with which we have most in common and at the same time seem to understand only marginally. However, Bradshaw is more optimistic than me and perhaps, if this book has the impact it should, he has a right to be.
It clearly states that it is not a training book, but every dog trainer should be made to read it before being allowed near a dog; it is not the easiest book to read — owners may find it tough going without a grounding in the basics because so much conflicts with current public perception. If you are or want to be a trainer or behaviourist, buy it and read it, now. Add your comment below, or trackback from your own site.
