She also seems of the typically American view that dogs when not being walked should spend most of their time in a cage. If that's what they want then why have a dog in the first place?
I also gained the impression that all the rescue dogs the author had ever met had nothing more than the slightest deviation from the canine behavioural norm. This book will NOT help you if you have an older dog with a lot of baggage.
There is also the suggestion that you should stare down a wilful dog without anything more than a passing suggestion that this could be a bit debatable/dangerous depending on the dog.
I also found the apparent need for large numbers of pointless cartoons somewhat annoying. They did nothing except show the author was appearing to pay homage to James Thurber in her cartooning style.
All in all I have to say that I found this book of no use whatsoever and if you have a seriously problematic rescue dog this book will be a complete waste of time and money
