I searched the web for help with my rescue dog and found it in this book. Many books offer training tips but they often presume that you are starting with a puppy. Our dog was already a year old when we adopted him from the street. We were using positive training methods but there was something missing. What Debbie's book addresses is how much fear interferes with your dog's acceptance of its new environment, its human family, other dogs, and its necessary training. It helped me understand how to work my dog, to be patient, and trust him. After 4 months with him he is a different dog-- a real part of the family.
