• Show you how to identify the subtle “triggers” that elicit fear
• Help you turn your dog’s fear into happy anticipation

It Works!!!, February 6, 2017
Reviewer: Danae Knapp
This booklet is great for owners of fearful dogs. The method McConnell explains is designed to turn your dogs fear into joy. I am using this method on my 4 year old German Shepherd. Although she isn't very fearful, she hasn't been in public much or met very many new people since she was a about a year old. We have only done a few training sessions, but she is doing better! We have gone from about 35 yards away from a stranger to about 10 yards away. Even at that distance, she is very calm. Before, she would bark and growl when a stranger got to close. I would highly recommend this booklet!



**For those who would be concerned, this booklet contains some language**

Reviewer: Emmagrace
Less than 30 pages but dollar for dollar worth every penny! The beauty is in the brevity! Less is more! Words like: 'Classical Counter Conditioning', 'Classical Conditioning', 'Operant Conditioning' are all used and I am slowly understanding the effects of such...but also the 'simple stuff'i.e.: 'Here's what doesn't work' (and why) are explained! KISS Keep It Simple Silly! I've been training dogs, informally, for 40 years using Punish/Reward (Classical Conditioning). This booklet (and others) are changing the way I think/train...and boy howdy....my dogs are happier!! That's all I know...it just feels better!! A must have!

I can't say enough good things about this book. I keep a stash of them to give to my clients when we work with fearful dogs. This book totally makes sense.
