Check out some of the reviews about his book below:

“When I started looking for dog training books because we had a new puppy on the way, I was so happy to find that training techniques have started moving in the direction of positive reinforcement instead of the “Alpha Dog” approach.”

“Each dog learns a little differently, but in this book, Zak George provides a not only humane way to train but a way that succeeds. He gives detailed, easy step-by-step training techniques that not only train the dog but the human as well.”

“The lessons in this book are short and easy to follow. It is so helpful in supplement to the YouTube videos. My Aussie puppy is taking to the training tips well.”
