Low Stress Handling, Restraint and Behavior Modification of dogs and Cats,

This review is from: Low Stress Handling, Restraint and Behavior Modification of Dogs and Cats: Techniques for Developing Patients Who Love Their Visits (Paperback)I'm having a difficult time getting through this book. Its not a bad thing, Dr Yin, just writes in such a way that you start thinking about what you just read. So, my mind keeps wondering off. It is easy to find something that your looking for in the book though, so getting back on track is easy.
The only bad thing was the book directs you to the DVD through out the chapter. At first I felt like I needed to stop and view it. In fact you can wait until the end of the chapter and then watch the DVD of the whole chapter.
The information is great and she does not speak over my head. I'm very greatful.

How to have the pet you always wanted,

This review is from: Low Stress Handling, Restraint and Behavior Modification of Dogs and Cats: Techniques for Developing Patients Who Love Their Visits (Paperback)Though spendy this book and DVD are great to have for learning and reference. I appreciate the "realness" of the DVD and the gentle, firm and positive approach. Does your vet treat your pet the same way? I am now equipped to better evaluate who cares for my pet and greatly encouraged that what so many of the "dominance" gurus do can be so harmful. If you cringe when you see dogs being jerked around by choke chain collars, zapped with electrical charges, yelled at, scolded and other wise "worked over" because their guardians feel their authority is threatened, then this is for you. Positive reinforcement and just good ol' consistent, positive, and upbeat attitude can work wonders. Dr. Yin shows how to use these positive attributes to help your pet become the confident companion you want. I also recommend any book by Patricia McConnell who recommended this book on her website.
