Great, inspiring stories that will also teach you a ton about how to train your dog. Jennifer has done so much to help so many - dogs and people. I'm glad she decided to write a book.

I absolutely loved this! I'm in the process of training my first puppy, and couldn't have come across this book at a better time. Jennifer Arnold does a wonderful job of presenting the history of the dog/human relationship and modern research about the canine mind. She explains both the impressive capabilities of dogs and their limitations. Though her opinion is very clear throughout, she does a good job of backing it up not only with anecdotes, but also with scientific research.
It is important to be aware that this is not a training book that spells out specific steps for training your dog. There is a very useful, but brief, appendix that covers specifics of the author's training technique ("choice training"). The main purpose of the book seems to be teaching the reader to understand dogs and how dogs understand things, essential information that seems to be missing from all of the training books that I've read so far.
I am so glad that Jennifer Arnold chose to narrate this book herself. She does an excellent job, and it just felt right to hear her personal experiences and philosophies from her own lips.
