I felt the book was not really good for a real fearful dog and never separated the difference of fear levels . If I did what they suggested with my current new dog she would shut down. She was abused and won't even go for a walk yet. We have made a lot of progress. but I don't push fast and most of this book seems to push and expose before building trust and confidence. This book recommends things done way to fast and that can flood a dog and not help them if fears are bad as mine is. I won't re-post it because someone not as educated in dog behavior might get it and cause more harm to their dog that help it mentally.
