SUMMARY: Exhaustive training and management tips for owners of city dogs

AUDIENCE: This book can be a precious help to first-time city dog owners, or if you are moving your rural/suburban dog to the city.

REVIEW: “Training the city dog” is an unpretentious, simple, easy, non-technical read. And we need those once in a while.

The book gives training and management tips targeted at city dogs. It has a comprehensive approach to the potential challenges faced bycity dogs, and suggests practical, realistic solutions to them.

It does not drown you in guilt or theory, but gives you tried and tested pragmatic training tips for your city dog.

One potential point of improvement would be the couple of chapters where the author suggests search engine keywords, instead of elaborating on the concept. Similarly, the author is neither a dog trainer, nor a behaviourist, so some of the topics on training need more research and minor corrections. Perhaps in the next edition?

The book also gives tangible suggestions promoting responsible ownership, potentially preventing more damage from anti-dog lobbies. The world would be a better place if every city dog owner followed the author’s tips.
