I really liked it!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 April 2019
This is a nice book, lovely as a paperback and has a lot of information for dog guardians about how their dog might be feeling. If you're looking for neuroscience, this isn't the book for you but if you're looking a a beautifully presented book on helping your dog with care and kindness - it's perfect.
Five StarsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 June 2018
Puppies, sure but adult rescues, nope.Reviewed in Canada on 27 April 2021
Bought this to help with a 6 year old fear reactive rescue as the description lead me to believe that was a good portion of the book. Nope...great basic info if you are starting out with a fearful puppy. And note, returns are at your expense which was almost the price of the book. Disappointing all around.
Great for fearful dogsReviewed in Canada on 31 January 2021
I only read the 1st bit because we ended up having to bring our dog back because he didn't like our toddler at all. However what I did read was amazing and made so much sense. I highly recommend this to anyone with a fearful dog.
