His unique approach uses entertaining examples and anecdotes from his work with dogs on and off the battlefield and direct tips from the Navy SEAL guidebook to teach dog owners how to: choose the perfect dog for their household, establish themselves as the “team leader,” master “command and control,” employ “situational awareness,” and to solidify their dog’s position as the family’s ultimate best friend.
TEAM DOG introduces pet owners everywhere to the new and distinctive authority on how to train your dog. . . the SEAL way.

Anyone who is serious about dog training should give this book a read. Great layout out of what to do with your dog to establish command and control and why you should do it. This book covered a lot of concepts I was already familiar with as well as gave me some new things to add to my training repertoire. I have enjoyed all of Mike's books.
