Old School

I’m sure a lot of dogs have been trained this way, but time moves on and these methods are definitely dated. If you’re a first time dog owner I’d look elsewhere.

Recommended by Vet

This book was recommended by my Vet. He warned me that it was dated but thought highly of the techniques. Seems like it takes too long to make a point on each topic.
