Introducing a positive, thorough training guide for dogs who are aggressive towards people and/or other dogs. Available via instant download!
Author, Beverly Hebert has a B.S. degree in nursing, plus 20 years of experience as a professional writer. For the past 5 years she has been a professional dog trainer. Her dog writing credits include published articles in Whole Dog Journal, the APDT Chronicle of the Dog, and Dog Fancy. Her goal for this writing project was to make rehabilitating your aggressive dog as simple, clear and reader friendly as possible.
Beverly was inspired to create this guide when a dog owner lamented that she had just finished yet another book about how to work with reactive dogs, but was still not sure how to get started, and still asking herself, “Now what?". The Aggression Guide began with a critical review/evaluation of many reference materials including correspondence with other trainers. Beverly especially drew on the work of Brenda Aloff, Jean Donaldson, Dr. Lore Haug, Dr. Patricia McConnell, Pat Miller, Dr. Karen Overall, and Emma Parsons.
