Reviewer: Cheryl Schaeffer
While this book may be very interesting to owners with aggressive dogs, I think this is even more important to people who work with dogs such as shelter staff, rescue workers and trainers.
I’ve found this book very well written and easy to understand. It gives incredible insight into the less attractive side of some dogs and how to work with the behaviours. Definitely should be a reference in so many facilities.
