Paul Owens is terrific.
Sure, Cesar Milan is flashy and great on TV, but Paul Owens can teach you to help your dog succeed in a monkey world in the first 5 minutes of reading... or watching one of his DVDs. I've been working with my dogs for years (successfully), but this is the first time I have seen methods work in minutes.
I just moved overseas and started having trouble with one of my dogs who was suddenly very insecure (understandably!). Paul Owens' books were in the library rather than Cesar Milan's. I'm not dissing Cesar; I have used the same methods.
My dog immediately improved. I have to be diligent, but she's getting better every day!I have to say, I haven't use the clicker yet. Lots of people believe in it and Owens recommends it, but I just haven't found one here yet.
Doris H. (dorisruth) reviewed The Dog Whisperer: A Compassionate, Nonviolent Approach to Dog Training on
Helpful Score: 1
It was a truly compassionate and nonviolent approach to dog training. The only problem I had is that it seems geared to starting with a puppy and I was interested in help for an older dog. All, in all a fine book for a new pet owner.
