I just ordered this book, and I was wondering if any of you guys out there have it. I would also like to hear your personal opinions on the pros and cons of the book, if anyone has the time... Thanks in advance
I don't think it's as bad as Howard says...come'on, outhouse book?
I think it is a good book, I think that there are many good things in the book. But like anything, you have to take some with a grain of salt. I think that any and every book you read, you can learn from. I actually refer back to this book on occasion although it's been years since I read it. Each book gives a slightly different perspective and what might be nonsense to some trainers might cause the light to come on in others and it may cause a paradigm shift in a few as well.
In the end, the good books are the ones that help you and make you a better trainer. Again, I don't think this is Outhouse material. :twisted:
I should put my copy on E bay, before I run out of TP. ONE of the major faults I find with this book is an abysmal lack of good sound training for marking. I love a dog which handles well, but before I invest a lot of time in teaching the dog to handle I want to know that he/she is a good marker.
