SUMMARY: Protocol on how to deal with dog-dog aggression. Aimed at a professional audience.

AUDIENCE: Pick this one up if you are unfamiliar with the force-free protocols for dog-dog reactivity.

REVIEW: This book lacked a little meat on the bone, in my opinion. Or at least it didn’t tell me anything I didn’t know, which is a disappointment considering the author.

She is a great generalist, and fabulously gifted at making abstract concepts clear to the layman, so I guess a highly focused, technical subject, isn’t her strong suit.

Perhaps this book did not get away with JD’s trademark conversational prose, and needed a more structured and technical approach?

I think it pretty much covered all there was to cover, but it left me feeling a little unsatisfied, somehow.

An additional (but small) frustration with this book is the frequent reference to using a bomb-proof dog, when this is in clearly a very rare commodity.

So, all in all, a very good summary and explanations of the protocols out there, but it’s a tad unrealistic at times.
