Expanded Description:

Written to help you maximize the joy of living in a multi-dog household, Feeling Outnumbered uses the study of animal behavior and positive training methods to teach your dogs to be polite and patient instead of demanding and pushy. Filled with practical ideas about keeping life fun in houses with two or more dogs, this book is a great resource for all multiple dog owners, whatever their level of training experience.

After reading Feeling Outnumbered, you’ll be able to:
Create order out of chaos in your multi-dog home
Walk several dogs together at the same time without dislocating your shoulder!
Make meal times calm and quiet
Use management like a pro to prevent problems from occurring
Read the early warnings signs that suggest trouble might be brewing

great start if you're new a multi-dog household!, June 12, 2012
Reviewer: Sue Brown, MNM, CDBC, CPDT-KA - The Light of Dog
If you've never had multiple dogs in your household before - or if you have but have had problems managing it - this is the booklet for you. Once again, McConnell gives concise easy-to-follow advice, this time for living with multiple dogs.
 
Great Book-Quick, Easy Read, July 10, 2010
Reviewer: Kirbyjakobs
This is such a nice concise book stock full of great info in only 50 pages. The focus on training each dog individually THEN bringing them together seems like common sense, but doesn't always happen. The authors give the reader 'permission' to treat each dog as an individual which was also helpful... just as you wouldn't treat two children exactly alike, treating two dogs, with different issues, exactly alike isn't always the most productive, yet we sometimes are drawn towards doing that for 'fairness sake'. The techniques are well described and easy to follow. A great book to look back at again and again as your pack becomes more and more focused as a group, I suspect once one challenge is tackled, I will be able to pick it up and learn how to manage another. Thanks Patricia & Karen!
 
Excellent!, October 29, 2009
Reviewer: David B
The authors almost short change themselves with the title...

Sure, the training and ideas do apply to multi-dog households, but much of that same training begins with training that first dog, and then bringing in the rest one at a time on the same thing unlit all are doing it. Is this a bad value for those of us in multi-dog households? Not a all! It is just that those with only one dog can get good ideas and value out of this book too. Add to that, there is enough good stuff that does apply directly to managing multi-dogs to keep those of us quite happy!

Lets look at it this way: I keep my books in pristine condition. The only books I ever mark in are my dog training and behavior ones. 'Feeling Outnumbered' has the most marks-per-page of any of them. A short book at 50 pages, but more wisdom per page than many others.
