Read full description of the books:



Having had a scare with my dog and a child she had bitten, there was obviously a very strong need for me to read more about why my dog has what has always previously been referred to as 'fear aggression', and for me to try and train her out of her aggressive behaviours. She was attacked as a pup by a man in the park, and had grown more and more afraid of anyone she didn't know and other dogs she didn't know, ever since. This book described my dog perfectly (i.e. she has a piranha bite, reacts to everything, is hyperactive/hyper responsive to any stimulus, barks at strangers, lunges, and yes she has bitten a few times). Imagine my relief to realise that a) these are researched and understood behaviours in dogs and there are good reasons why they behave this way and b) there are very simple and practical ways for me to 'train' those behaviours out of my dog. More importantly, the training methods offered in this book by the author are ALL positive, kind, solid and good methods. The book also explains why the training methods employed by the likes of Cesar Milan et al (she doesn't name him - she doesn't have to) are so damaging and potentially lethal to both dogs and people (and to our relationship with our dogs). Furthermore, this book explains why the half-arsed and old-fashioned training methods to stop dogs lunging, barking, etc. that I had picked up along the way were actually having the reverse effect to the one I wanted - I have been teaching her to bark more and react more all along, by shouting and becoming stressed myself. I had probably also inadvertently been transferring my own nervousness back onto my dog. Stupid, stupid. Now I know to remain calm, firm, walk my dog away from a potentially bad situation (or minimise a bad situation by removing ourselves quickly and calmly), reward her when she's calm and ONLY when she's calm when other people are about, and so on. I'm still reading the book, after first skim reading it, and now writing up notes as I work with my dog using all of the author's training directions. My dog is definitely calmer and quieter already, and we are both more confident. We seem to have a better bond now, too; my dog seems to know that I fully understand her behaviour problems now. I know I'm becoming a much better dog owner as a result of reading this book. 10/10 to Ali Brown, the author of 'Scaredy Dog', who clearly understands reactive dogs inside out, and has written such an easy to read and easy to follow book. This book comes highly recommended by me.
