This book is great for anyone who rescues dogs.
As an avid animal lover, I'm always trying to find homes for the unwanted stray dogs and cats.
Behavior problems always make it difficult to find the right family to care for them.
As a result, I've ended up keeping the most challenging animals.
I have a very timid Chihuahua that's a constant work in progress.
I've tried to follow some the techniques a very popular pet whisper employs but some of his methods are just to abrasive for me.
By building trust like Sunny says, I've been able to make progress with him.
I much prefer this method to flooding.
This book offers many tips on how to handle behavioral problems in a non cruel way.
If you've ever wanted insight from your furry friends POV you'll want to listen to this.
I was lucky enough to be given this book for free that I highly recommend.

Frist a shout out to Sunny for all the work she has done with dogs! I wish there was more people out there like her.
She has some great tips, and stories in here. I hope everyone who owns a dog reads this. Even if its just to understand how dogs think if nothing else.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Fabulous book for anyone involved in dog rescue.
Would you consider the audio edition of Beyond Flight or Fight to be better than the print version?
I think that hearing the book, you can pick up the emphasis points of training much easier. You hear how to praise a dog with high inflections in your tone and understand how it affects the dog.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond Flight or Fight?
I was very interested to learn many tips, to see how a dog could easily be misunderstood and once placed with an understanding trainer/owner that fearful traits can be managed. I was also surprised to learn that noises from a TV could upset a rescue, obvious now, but before this book, I had not taken any notice of what family members were watching. Great book, I do not 100% agree with everything, but we all have our own views, but I have learnt a lot too. Highly recommend this title.
Have you listened to any of Richard Rieman’s other performances? How does this one compare?
This was my 1st and I intend to listen to it a few times over.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book was a huge eye opener. I work with dogs most days and have rescued lots over the years and this book helped me see where I had naturally made the correct choice in my training methods and where I could have got a quicker response had I tried another.
Any additional comments?
