Brilliant work!, October 30, 2006 By Rachel J. (NYC)
This review is from: My Smart Puppy: Fun, Effective, and Easy Puppy Training (Book & 60min DVD) (Hardcover) Hi! I got the
My Smart Puppy book on Friday and read the whole thing by Saturday! Hudson and I have already played all the Level I games.
He is perfect at some already (since we've already been training), but we will continue to improve at others.What I want to say is
that it is, hands down, the most wonderful book on training I have read since I decided to get a dog pal. I read Good Owners,
Great Dogs and Metrodog too, and I loved them both, but there is something about the tone of MSP that beats all.The whole
thought of looking at training as a series of "games" is awesome. And, you know what? The best thing was the included DVD. I
had read about half the book, and then watched the DVD. I realized that while I consider myself an effusive person (especially
with Hudson), I really could stand to be a lot more joyful and playful with Hudson during training. I was being very businesslike
about it. I really needed to see Sarah and Brian's attitude with the dogs to...

An essential guide for training a dog of any age, October 10, 2006 By Melissa Fischer (New York)
This review is from: My Smart Puppy: Fun, Effective, and Easy Puppy Training (Book & 60min DVD) (Hardcover) As with all of
Brian and Sarah's books, My Smart Puppy is a delight to read. Easy to follow, personable, and full of helpful suggestions, this
book is both motivating and encouraging. While reading it, I kept wanting to stop and do the various exercises with my dogs.
Packed with information, this is an easy-to-apply, practical, and FUN book on dog training. The stories about Pip, the authors'
puppy, are engaging, and the many photos illustrate the principles and training games beautifully. The space games are a new
and much needed addition to the world of dog training, as they teach owners of both puppies and adult dogs how to
communicate easily, effectively, and clearly with their dogs in an enjoyable and non-confrontational manner. Through them, a
strong, positive relationship is established as the foundation of all training, so that your dog learns built in habits of trust, respect,
and obedience. I highly recommend this book for anyone with a puppy or dog of any age. It will help...

Excellent Book***, January 19, 2007 By Sandra Moore (AZ)
This review is from: My Smart Puppy: Fun, Effective, and Easy Puppy Training (Book & 60min DVD) (Hardcover) My Smart
Puppy is one of those books you want to tell everyone about. The training exercises are short and simple (and fun!), and the
training is done in stages (levels). Each exercise is prefaced with a Goal, then how to get there in beautifully explained detail.
The details of each exercise are not long and drawn out, because they don't have to be. There are 2 to 4 steps in each exercise.
The concept of dog training in this book is a common sense approach and works toward the overall desired results, which is a
puppy who learns to behave well and a bond that is formed between you and your puppy. It comes with a DVD that shows
exactly how to do some of the exercises (very cute to see puppies learning new things for the first time). A puppy loves to learn
and these exercises give it that opportunity, and the mental stimulation all puppies and dogs need, as well as learning that you
are his gentle and fair leader.These exercises are for foundational training beyond just the...
