Brilliant Book to Help Your Dog Over a Fear of Anything!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 October 2018
Brilliant little book, written by a very experienced Dog Trainer, who not only has been in the business a long time, but also keeps her skills and knowledge up to date with Modern Canine Research & Science. Which is what any good Dog Trainer/Behaviourist should do. The book talks specifically about how to desensitize/counter condition to fear of people, but clearly states the techniques can be used for anything your dog is afraid of. It really works, if you put it into practice and don't give up. Highly recommended.

Very helpfulReviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 January 2017
I like that its short and doesn't waffle. Some people have complained that it is too short but its quality over It has made a huge difference to my rescue puppy who would not leave the house because he was afraid of people. In about 1 week of this training he has improved massively and we have been out every day, going a little further each day and into slightly noisier environments each time. I also was able to tell people who visited to ignore him and he is much calmer now with people in the house. I always get someone who thinks they know better and does exactly what the book says to not do. Then he woofs and growls at them and they pay more attention to what I say.

Good reasReviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 September 2019
It’s a good read, always good to read different perspectives and question what you agree with and not believe the first thing you read.
A must read for ANY dog ownerReviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 September 2018
There's so much in this guide for dog owners to learn. I reckon all dog owners should read Patricia's books. They're easy to understand and thorough without being too heavy.
