Editorial Reviews

For anyone driven to the brink by his or her canine, author Randy Grim presents this unlikely, but practical guide. Don't Dump the Dog is brimming with Grim's acerbic wit and good-natured take on doggy behavioral issues, giving dog owners a chance to relax and share a laugh. Performer Erik Synnestvedt is bright and playful, seamlessly blending clever quips with more serious subject matter concerning abandoned dogs and overcrowded shelters. A decorated advocate for four-legged friends, Grim backs up his practical advice with years' worth of research and instructive anecdotes.

Publisher's Summary

Good advice - "Dear Abby" style - for bad dog owners.
Do you want to dump your dog because he tries to escape your yard? Barks too much? You-know-whats in the house? Doesn’t play well with others? Chewed up your favorite pair of shoes? You wouldn’t be the first person asking to “return” your pet. And dog rescuer Randy Grim has heard every reason under the sun. But before you load Fido into the back of your car, listen to this book.
In it, Randy addresses the concerns of dog guardians everywhere by responding to letters that he’s actually received. With humor, and from his vast experiences with abandoned dogs, he reveals exactly what you can do to remain calm and fix every bad behavior problem. (Even if it means dumping your husband instead of the dog.)

Learn about your Dog while Laughing

As the father of a veterinarian I know all about stray dogs making it into the house for the last 20 years (four of them currently). Yet, I was able to learn a lot about Dog behavior in this book.
As a welcomed bonus, I was laughing out loud while doing it. Maybe because I have experienced some of the situations Randy explained, I was laughing so hard I had to pull over a couple of times before I had an accident. Furthermore, the way Randy makes light of a serious situation (people dumping dogs) without diminishing its importance is masterful.

If you are an animal lover, own a dog, are thinking of owning a dog or rescue stray animals,
you must read this book for the knowledge and for the FUN OF IT!

I will be giving a copy of this book with every dog we are able to place.

Pretty Good

I have bought several training books and this was one of the best read out there.

This is a really high quality recording.

One note about dog training every trainer is different. No matter what book you get you will have to use and implement techniques that you are comfortable with. With that said this book is not ground breaking . But the delivery is great. It is funny and will give you some great insight into the word of rescues.
