Great 6 week primer, March 13, 2013
Reviewer: Susan Bonness
I love this book. As a pet manners instructor I find this manual a clear, concise outline for a 6 week Pet Manners I obedience course. I recommend my students purchase it as their textbook.
 
Excellent!, September 28, 2009
Reviewer: C. Sobol
Patricia McConnell & Aimee Moore have created a resource that will be turned to again and again, in keeping with Patricia McConnell's reputation.

This manual is excellent as a stand-alone or as a reference companion to any beginning pet dog obedience class. McConnell lays out each exercise logically and clearly, explaining all the steps and emphasizing important bits along the way, like not repeating commands, and even technical details such as *how* to position one's hand to effectively lure the down.

I feel totally comfortable lending this out to first-time (or repeat) dog owners and knowing that they will have an excellent tool in hand.

I love Patricia's clear, logical, scientific style and entertaining but not pedantic voice. In fact, this is a valuable reference tool in my own library to guide training sessions whenever I should next welcome another canine friend into my home.
 
Great Book for the Pet Owner, August 3, 2007
Reviewer: Jennie
Just loaned my copy to a co-worker in the office who mentioned his family was getting a puppy. He said his wife has put aside all the other puppy training books she bought and just LOVES this one. I love it when a good training book can grab the pet owner. Well done.
