as a dog trainer, i'm always looking for books to recommend to my clients, which will also teach me something new/interesting.

grisha's book succeeds in both cases. grisha has an easy, conversational style which makes this book a joy to read. her training techniques and philosophy are made very clear, and are easy to follow.

she gives interesting examples of how to teach particular skills/cues, and has some new, innovative ideas to share (especially in dealing with the ever so complicated issue of dog reactivity).

i also greatly appreciate her courage and honesty in discussing coercive training techniques and pointing out why they do not work, and cause pain to our beloved dogs. something that some other trainers/writers often "pussy foot" around. it's nice to see that grisha doesn't hold back.

i highly recommend this book for professionals, dog enthusiasts, and doggie "rookies" alike.
Can I just say I'm LOVING the Ahisma Dog Training Manual! It just makes sense and I think it will be great for people new to dog training (hey, even those who have been around will pick up new ideas).
