Publisher Comments:

Is walking your dog a tug-of-war? At last, a simple way to teach your dog to walk on a leash without pulling your arm off! Norwegian dog trainer, Turid Rugaas, internationally known for her ground-breaking work on canine body language and author of On Talking Terms with Dogs: Calming Signals, turns her attention to the common problem of dogs that pull while on a leash. In My Dog Pulls. What Do I Do? you will learn Turid's quick and easy method to train any age, size or breed of dog to walk calmly and quietly on a loose leash. Her approach is humane and based on a solid understanding of why dogs pull and how to work with the dog's nature and the environment to overcome the problem. City, town or country walking will become more relaxed, reducing stress for dog and owner.

Synopsis:

Describes a kind and effective method for encouraging dogs to walk without pulling. Simple steps with informative photographs which aid understanding, includes tips on equipment to use, reasons for pulling and trouble shooting, along with case studies.

What is really cool is that Turid uses scientific data to back up her work here. Many have had issue with the lack of scientific data with her Calming Signals work and I think she includes it here well.

I reviewed the booklet as part of her upcoming visit, April 18-21st (2006) at CSDogBookReview (a YahooGroup) along with her 2nd Edition version of On Talking Terms with Dogs: Calming Signals booklet/DVD. We always love having Turid as a guest because we learn so much from her in the short amount of time she can give us in her busy schedule. It's wonderful that we have had her as a guest each year we've been in exsistence as a group and that she loves coming back!

Neither of my dogs currently have a pulling issue so I wasn't able to really practice Turid's methods. I think adding in the work to have a unique sound before actually going outside to work on loose leash walking will really help a lot of people that are frustrated with the standard 'make like a tree' that is often suggested.

The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I think Turid, or possibly her UK editor who helped with the translation from Norwegian, got a little heavy handed in telling the readers that various equipment is bad to use. Yes, as a positive dog trainer I'm not happy seeing a dog in a prong, choke, slip collars but there are less heavy handed ways of stating than what was used.

The bonus is the lovely full color photos and the use of color throughout the booklet. If this is a dog issue you are working on, this booklet should help you!
