Comprehensive and effective, The Dog Whisperer, is the essential guide to training your canine companion. The author, John Richardson has over thirty years experience training dogs and is Managing Director of Dog Tech International, a firm that specializes in all dog and puppy behavior problems. Based on the premise that the modern dog still shares many of the behavioral characteristics of its ancestor, the Wolf, The Dog Whisperer will show readers the ten keys to effective training and how to put those keys into practice. The methods are all non-aggressive and rely on positive reinforcement, namely the three 'R's' of dog training: Reward, Reinforcement, and Reprimand. This great new book will help readers solve dog behavior problems effectively, and offers a revealing insight into the minds of dogs -- ultimately leading to an improved relationship between readers and their canine friends. Perfect for people who are having behavior difficulties with their dog, or for people who just want to know their dog, and how it thinks, better.

About the Author

John Richardson is based in Sydney and has trained dogs for over thirty years. Known as 'The Dog Whisperer', he is chief instructor and Managing Director of DogTech International - one of the most successful in-home dog training companies operating in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Japan. He assists animal welfare shelters and runs workshops and seminars for the RSPCA. Leslye Sharon Cole is a freelance illustrator living in Sydney. After seeing John work as 'The Dog Whisperer' on television, she sought his help with her own dog's behavioural problems. This led to a creative association and their first book together, The Dog Whisperer.

Michelle Harvey on
A good dog book for those new to dog training as it contains a lot of basic fundamentals of dog behaviour and dog training. Some of the information is a little outdated such as the focus on dominance based training methods and only briefly touches on positive reinforcement style training methods.
