"Me or the Dog - now ME & MY DOG"

What can I say - the hype around Victoria Stilwell since the introduction of Me or the Dog is well and truly justified. The woman knows what she's on about and this book strips away the ridiculous outfits and stupid phrases from Channel 4 and gives you the information you need in plain old english. Getting a puppy - she tells you how to train it in different ways and tells you why it works/doesn't. Got a problem - there's questions answered throughout the book. She tells you how to train particular aspects and how to discipline too. It's also reasurringly written in that it's not patronising and helps you understand your dog - there's sections on body language and noises - it's fairly in depth but at the same time split into sections so you can find the bit on crate training, or toilet training, or barking whenever you need it. It definately helped me train Doughnut and now we're best of pals (she'd sell my soul for a bonio but...). I got my copy of ebay - HB so that it survived being chewed by puppy teeth!
