The real deal!
The best thing you could ever do for yourself and your new pup is read this book. It’s an easy no nonsense everything you need to know about your new pup. Once you start reading it you won’t want to put it down. It gives you so much confidence, takes a big load off your shoulders. You won’t do anything but succeed it’s amazing I am so thankful for this book. And access to all the videos that go along with the training, it’s a must have! Thanks
A loving and inspiring approach
I have a four and a half month old rescue pup who has gotten some of the basics in this book down and is LOVING the positive reinforcement and inside out approach. She’s come in gone through curious chewing phases and still acts out here and there but is much happier when we guide her what to chew and use gentle corrections and treat lures. I recommend this book to any new or existing pet owner. Gonna go back and read again :)
Save your money
This book didn’t say anything anyone who’s had dogs already knows. Every problem i was hoping to find help with either wasn’t in the book or skimmed over (like digging). the accompanying videos are half Zak promoting the book you e already bought. If you know the basics of positive reinforcement, this book will not help
