Dogs are from Neptune

has anyone read this? i am starting it right now, it has many answers to common problems, fear of strangers ( many different situations), resource gaurding, dog - dog aggression (which is why i got it, again many different situations), behavior problems ( e.g. counter surfing, barking in apartments, garbage raiding, common things like that), Obedience problems ( e.g. off leash control, stay breaking, greeting, recall of predatory distraction, another reason i got it, that could be useful at the field or park) and fear& anxiety ( traffic anxiety, separation anxiety- mild and severe). This book is by Jean Donaldson. I will let you know about it as i get in to it.

Jean Donaldson is a fabulous writer, full of humour and genius.

There are few positive trainers who explain things the way that Jean does... I'm sure you'll enjoy the book.

If you haven't already, check out her "Culture Clash." It's brilliant, and a must-have in any dog library.

Fable - Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd - Grain Free - hyper, hyperintelligent, apple of our eye

And of course, the cats Jasper and Pey'j, and the current flock Kenya, Kirby, Sunny, Simone and Duffy.

Last but not least, the endless stream of incoming and outgoing rescue pups!
