Spoiler-tastic review

This is a beginner’s guide to owning and training dogs. It discusses how to choose the right dog, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of mixed breeds versus purebloods. The authors discuss the merits of exercise, health care, basic and advanced training and more.

I’ve been having some trouble with my dog Sawyer for a while now. He’s a very happy and friendly dog, but his predatory instinct makes walks with him a living hell. I’ve followed Zak George’s YouTube channel for a while now, so when I saw his book I checked it out. Unfortunately he never really discussed how to handle predatory instincts in your pets, so that’s a pity.

That said, I will be following his advice in teaching my dog how to fetch, how to handle his minor separation anxiety and teach him how to come.

Stay Sunny!
