So far so awesome

I have a male cockapoo puppy who is 4 months old. I don’t have any experience with training dogs since he is my first dog. I have been training him with the techniques in this book since I got him a month ago, and they work! It has taken plenty of effort on my part, but simply following the instructions - with plenty of repetition - has worked great with my pup.

My wife and I have been considering a dog for quite some time now. Through reading this book we realized that we are very capable and excited to bond with and train a dog of our very own. Although we have not yet found our perfect pup I have had the opportunity to to implement many of Zak’s methods taught in this book with a twelve year old beagle. The beagle belongs to my in-laws and has never been trained at all. Although he is an old dog with many bad habits we have created a new bond with him that has given him an entirely new quality of life. He has learned ten new tricks and counting, as well as how to properly play fetch, and walk nicely on leash. We are so excited to get our own dog in the near future and have an amazing bond with a well trained dog all due to the knowledge we gained from reading this fantastic book.
