Review: Don't Shoot the Dog!: The New Art of Teaching and Training

User Review  - Dixie - Goodreads

Brilliant book that I re-read every couple of years and always get a lot out of each time. NOT a dog book, though great for dog trainers, but equally useful for parents, voters, thinking people of all kinds. It would be a better world if everyone read this book and followed its principles.
