Love Is All You Need: The Art and Science of Non-Training Your Dog by Jennifer Arnold
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First off, I read the e-book, not the audio cd. I couldn't find the proper format listed for this title.
This book arrived to me with perfect timing. I brought my puppy home a few days before I started reading this and it just really resonated with me. I've never been one for dog obedience school (although I think they probably help in certain circumstances) and didn't do much training with my last dog. I wanted to have a happy relationship with him but I still wanted him to be doggy. I feel like people want their dogs to be a bit too much like people in their training methods. This book is not a training manual. It's not a how-to book. What lies at the heart is encouraging a strong bond with your dog, and all the rest will follow. I took a week off work to spend with my new puppy. Although we have been working on house training, the rest has just been bonding time. It's going great. Couldn't be happier.
