Better Together takes the reader on a journey that begins with an introduction of clicker training and the basics for puppies and all dogs. The book then progresses into more advanced concepts, with chapters on solving problems, dealing with aggressive dogs, and creating the thinking dog. I particularly like Karen Pryors new Modern Principles of Training just one of the many highlights included in the book. I am hopeful that Better Together will be a valuable resource for trainers of all levels.Ken Ramirez
