Description

The right advice is critically important to working with "special needs" dogs, and this is just the book to use. "Deborah Wood does a wonderful job of making real-life scenarios meaningful. I applaud the fact that there are special people in the world willing to go the distance for fearful dogs. Thanks to Deborah Wood for writing the book that will see them through." Susan Mentley, Operations Director, Oregon Humane Society "Deborah's book expertly blends her professional background working with emotionally damaged people with her canine experience. She has clarified many misconceptions and presented solutions in a way we all can apply successfully." Don Arner, Publisher and Editor Off-Lead, the international dog trainer's magazine. Meet nine dogsGoldie, Weazie, Nellie, Challenge, Tarah, Colter, Reno, Tess and Briggs. All were once fearful and shy, and skeptical owners and shelters alike feared that these dogs would never enjoy happy, active lives. Now, these canines are great companions, therapy dogs and obedience competition winners. What has helped transform these terrified dogs into such terrific pets? Sensitive, specific and practical training methods explained by dog trainer, Deborah Wood. An owner of a former "terrified" dog, Ms. Wood shares with readers the ways in which she brought her beloved pet out of her shell and right into the hearts of all who meet her.
