What a delightful and insightful book. I have had my Hannah for almost 6 years and now understand why she does what she does and how I am contributing to her behavior. I am sharing this book with everyone I know who has a dog. Marissa has an enjoyable and witty writing style.


I absolutely love this book. It gave me so many insights into what I do without even noticing--both with myself and with my dog. Thank you, Ms. Martino, for a fresh perspective and for actual, practical, and applicable tools (lots of them). Five stars for sure!


I loved this book! Marissa Martino shared very valuable information regarding canine behavior. She also stressed the value of the human-canine relationship while addressing various training issues and experiences with our dogs. She described detailed training scenarios for her readers which really helped me to grasp the various methods and ideas that she presented.
