Here are some of Harrison's trademark insights into dog behavior and training:
*Energy management is the basis of behavior management : unwanted or aggressive behavior, is often the result of pent-up, frustrated energy
*Dog behavior should always be taken in context; a dog that is housetrained in its home isn't necessarily so everywhere else
*Every dog's make-up is individual and distinct--:a combination of nature and nurture
*Non-verbal communication, structure and clearly delineated limits, and the human-canine bond are basic building blocks in a good relationship
*Reasonable expectations are key to an enjoyable pet experience
DOG TALK is at times funny, irreverent, insightful, and touching, and it will deepen the reader's understanding of dog behavior and as a result will enable him to approach his own dog in a fresh and motivated way to begin, improve, mend, or strengthen a relationship that can last a lifetime.

Dogs (and the people who love them) are tired of the school of dominant, top-dog training. They are looking for a new kind of pack leader: someone funny, enthusiastic, intuitive, approachable, and, above all, effective. And they’ve found her. Sarah Hodgson rejects dominance-based training and gets astonishing results with a blend of wit, compassion, energy, and proven skills. She communicates instructions clearly, directs behavior compassionately, and rewards success lavishly.
*Understanding the signs your dog is giving you
*Having fun while learning manners
*How to fit your dog into your lifestyle
*How to communicate lovingly and effectively with your dog
This practical, accessible book provides a unique way of communicating with dogs which will give you a better understanding of why dogs do what they do. This will enable you to correct undesirable behaviour in your dog and develop a friendship built on love, harmony and mutual trust.
The methods used in this book don't seek to dominate your dog but rather to show that you are the decision-maker so that your dog can sit back and relax, knowing that all the important decisions regarding danger, safety and food are taken by you.
This form of natural canine communication can be used to resolve any issue, such as:
Excessive or attention barking.
Pulling on the lead.
Digging up the garden.
Difficulties associated with rescue dogs.
An acclaimed poet, Rachel Rose never expected to spend her nights careening along the roads in high-speed chases or searching the woods for armed suspects. Yet once she decided to meet the people who devoted their lives to police K9 units, she found herself signing up for the ride-alongs, training runs, and other challenges that these courageous people–and canines–face on a daily basis.
In The Dog Lover Unit, Rose introduces readers to police dogs and their handlers in the United States, Canada, Britain, and France (where their group's official name translates as "the dog lover unit"). She’s there to catch a criminal with Constable Matt Noel and Blackie; to patrol with Sheriff Gene Davis and Gunner; and to witness the tragic funeral of Constable Dave Ross, where K9 Danny follows the coffin, looking for his master.
With insight, humor, and awe, this book reveals the feats that these human and canine teams accomplish, and the emotional and physical risks that they take for one another, and for us.
The dog is your pet and therefore your responsibility. If you have a dog that bites somebody, then you are responsible. That responsibility can be scary if you have a dog that is aggressive; you love your dog and do not want to give up the dog, but the responsibility that comes with an aggressive dog is very high.
Many of these dogs end up in shelters if the owner cannot control their behavior. Formal dog training is expensive, not all dog owners can afford that.
This book will help you with your aggressive dog, to help you understand why your dog is aggressive and how to cure it. Our methods are effective and focus on positive reinforcement to help you, and your dog.
If you have an unruly dog, then they are thought of as obnoxious but lovable family members. If anything, dogs can sometimes be a tad bit too enthusiastic and that is when obedience training comes in handy. Obedience training will help give your dog the discipline that they need to wreck less havoc in your household and will help eliminate a lot of the stress that stems from having an untrained dog.
Dog training and obedience classes can be costly but they are also not necessary. It is possible to train your dog yourself, at home to follow some basic commands, such as sit, come, down, stay, heel, leave it and go to your spot. If you would like to train your dog without spending extra money for fancy classes, this is the book for you.
No matter what age the dog is, puppy or adult, it needs the proper potty training.
Also, no matter what the size, whether small or large dogs, they need the rules, boundaries and limitation from you.
Start potty training your dog now and avoid having accidents around your house. Not only can your dog benefit from the training but also you. To live a life without house mess can also be achievable through dog housetraining.
