Then she gets right down to business with written instructions and accompanying photos that show what she's talking about. Lots of good stuff, including doggie behaviors that seem weird but are actually quite natural." * * STARRED REVIEW "New and experienced dog owners will find terrific tools to ensure success in behavior and training.
