After working with thousands of dogs with leash aggression, dog aggression, human aggression, resource guarding, separation anxiety, and overall troublesome behavior, world-renowned trainer Sean O’Shea, owner and founder of The Good Dog Training and Rehabilitation; saw some recurring themes consistently derailing the human/dog relationship. Sean discovered that countless trainers and owners were struggling to not only understand these issues but more importantly, to put clear, concise, easy-to-understand words to them.
The Good Dog Way: Love Them by Leading Them, fills that incredibly important gap. Until its release, dog training books almost exclusively focused on training mechanics, commands, and rules, but had missed the all-important “why”.
Why were we struggling?
Why were we making the same mistakes over and over?
Why were our dogs a mess?
Something big was indeed missing, and without this critical piece, the foundational “why” underneath it all, even the best training and coaching practices were still struggling. Pouring several years into compiling, writing, and re-writing, he crafted a training book like no other. A book which clearly articulated how our human emotional tendencies, intellectual misconceptions, as well as a lack of understanding of our dog’s true needs, were deeply sabotaging our best intentions. A book which offered simple, but profound answers for these struggles.
Note: This book is based on a balanced approach and philosophy to dog training. Its focus is on practical, realistic, and most of all, effective training. If the idea of sharing consequences with your dog for poor or dangerous choices; or if using modern, effective, and humane tools such as prong or e-collars is not in alignment with your beliefs, then this is likely not the right audiobook for you.
