MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
O'Heare's THE DOG AGGRESSION WORKBOOK provides a fine guide for owners of dogs who act aggressively. The workbook provides a systematic, reinforcement-based approach to changing such behaviors, offering clearly-defined strategies and tools needed to address all kinds of aggression. These are fine recommendations for trainers and general lending libraries alike. James A. Cox
