MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
“Dog Training is a lucrative business, and “The Dog Trainer’s Resource 2: The APDT Chronicle of the Dog Collection” is a solid reference for dog trainers who want an encyclopedia reference available for them. With theories touching upon dog psychology, socialization, and more, it also touches on the business model suggestions for this business. With additional asides on training not just the dog, but the dog owner, “The Dog Trainer’s Resource 2” is a must for any dog trainer looking to turn it into business.” James A. Cox
“Learn from the best! Dense with cutting-edge information from experts in their respective fields, this collection was gleaned from the APDT Chronicle of the Dog, and everyone – from newcomers to the dog world to those who are long time residents – will find something of interest between its covers. Curious about dogs’ physical and emotional health, developing a dog-training business, or the theories behind current thinking on training and behavior? Is so, you’ll find good information here. As a bonus, this edition includes a detailed bibliography, an aid to your own exploration of the research.” Jo Haraf
“The Dog Trainer’s Resource 2, a follow-up to a 2007 collection of articles from the APDT’s Chronicle of the Dog, presents innovative information on topics ranging from new theories in puppy socialization to the role of medications in behavior therapy. Each chapter features articles by authorities, such as the well-known positive reinforcement expert Ian Dunbar, PhD, certified professional dog trainer, and Jim Barry, known for gundog training and ethics. Readers may not totally agree with all the opinions, theories and methodologies presented, but the material is thought-provoking. In the article, “Sibling Rivalry,” author and trainer Daphne Robert-Hamilton explores factors that exacerbate dog-to-dog aggression in a household… As Robert-Hamilton notes, dog training is rife with controversy, and The Dog Trainer’s Resource 2 attempts to present a balance of alternate views. For instance, an article on behavior-modifying drugs is followed by an article on using Bach flower essences in behavior-modification therapy. Readers should not expect the comprehensive presentation they would find in a manual or textbook. Nor is the material intended for novices. Familiarity with behavior, psychology, and terminology are essential to fully appreciate the content. Each article is well-referenced to facilitate additional research. This is the kind of book you may want to read.” Amy Fernandez
