Interesting books from DogwisePosted: July 10, 2009
Most of you receiving this weekly update are successful at training dogs – at least your own, right? Training someone else to train his or her dog – or how to deal with their dog’s behavioral problems – is a significantly more challenging endeavor, however. Fortunately the human side of the equation is being increasingly recognized as something the professional dog trainer must get a handle on to be successful. Our book of the week was one of the first to address this issue by one of the real pioneers in the field, William “Bill” Campbell.
