Book: Zak George's Dog Training Revolution
Author: Zak George
This is my 79th read for the year
Zak George is a dog trainer with a newer approach to a happy dog. His book covers the basics of dog training from the time you bring home your puppy - and even before as you decide what breed might be the best fit for your family. His technique of positive reinforcement and training your dog from the inside out is a newer approach to the training world.
This was a great book. We have had a dog before, but it has been 11 years since we had a puppy. My husband always had dogs growing up, and the techniques that he used and we used with our first dog are different than the newer approaches. Science and research is starting to show that positive based training from the inside out to get the behaviors out of your dog is a much more effective, long term way to train your dog to fit your family. I learned a lot in this book and from watching many of his videos that made me decide this was the approach we wanted to take with our new puppy. Great advice in this book.
