Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Carol Benjamin makes dog training sound like more fun than a barrel of puppies.... Mother Knows Best is a thoroughly enjoyable book whose pages may become a bit worn from constant re-reading. But it's too good to read just once." —Dogs in Canada

"[The] author is someone who really loves and understands dogs, and that comes through on every page.... Every aspect of training is covered, from the basics of puppy training to structured obedience exercises, in sufficient detail and sufficient examples to show you how you can apply the advice to your own situation." —Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine Animal Health Newsletter

"Carol Benjamin has written a breakthrough book that exposes the fallacy of humanizing dogs and calls for an intelligent, reasoned, and painstaking re-evaluation of just how dogs are originally educated." —Job Michael Evans, Dog Fancy

"This book is full of excellent information and innovative ideas for turning that cute puppy into a true companion...an excellent book to give or recommend." —AKC Gazette
