       Product Description-Surviving Your Dog's Adolescence: A
          Positive Training Program (Howell reference books)
 In Praise of Surviving Your Dog's Adolescence"Carol Benjamin has brought her usual wit and insight to bear on what is one of
 the most troubling phases for dog owners.... Whether you're having difficulties with a youngster or have a puppy who will soon
be an adolescent, you can't help but benefit from reading this book." Robert G. Maxwell President, The American Kennel Club"A
concise and practical guide Zthat] confronts almost every potential problem...with solid advice and good humor. It is destined to
          become a dog owner's next best friend." Roger A. Caras President, ASPCAA Howell Dog Book of Distinction

  As any parent knows, adolescence is the most challenging part of raising a child. However, as Carol Lea Benjamin proves in
   "Surviving Your Dog's Adolescence," illustrative cartoons, pertinent case studies, and good advice can certainly make that
  challenging age easier to handle. As a professional dog trainer, Benjamin focuses her advice on positive training techniques
designed to help both parent and teen through the tumultuous adolescent period. Many of her insights are portrayed through the
    eyes of a canine, and help to illustrate the types of thoughts entertained by the teen dog. These range from the dog who
 responds to his owner's calls of "Come" with "When Pigs Fly," to the dog who demonstrates his tenacity by staking out a mole
     hill with a flag that says "Never Say Die." Also included are techniques for effective training, guidelines for appropriate
    dog-owner relationships, and tips for dealing with specific dog "problems." Case studies of real-life dogs offer substantial
  evidence to back up Benjamin's recommendations. A must-read for any owner of an adolescent dog, "Surviving Your Dog's
Adolescence" can help any parent understand the teen dog and help to provide guidelines that result in a rewarding relationship
                                               for both dog and owner. --Jennifer Pugh

This review is from: Surviving Your Dog's Adolescence: A Positive Training Program (Howell reference books) (Hardcover) I'm
not sure why one reviewer said this book used negative methods for dog training such as alpha rolls and scruff shaking,
because I saw neither mentioned in the book. The author does recommend "a quick pop followed by an immediate release"
when using a leash to train, but this is a perfectly sensible and harmless way of getting the dog's attention.The author
continually emphasizes the importance of praise, praise, and more praise in teaching your dog the proper way to behave, and
her methods really live up to the "positive" claim in the title. This is a very reader-friendly book as well. The writer presents her
information in an easy-to-read and often humorous format, all the while providing sound advice. I highly recommend this book
as both human and dog friendly!

25 of 27 people found the following review helpful A ground breaking insight into the mind of your dog, September 12, 1999 By
A Customer
This review is from: Surviving Your Dog's Adolescence: A Positive Training Program (Howell reference books) (Hardcover) Ms.
Benjamin leaves an indelible mark on the understanding of dogs with this work that recognizes that the time between
puppyhood and adulthood is not limited to us humans. The excellent methodology outlined in this text denotes a person with an
uncommon insight into the minds and behavior of dogs. The techniques described in the book are both helpful and thorough -
follow them and you will get the job done. This is not a book for those who would build a relationship between a dog and the
liver snaps in their pocket. It is a book for those who want to enjoy a warm relationship between themselves and their dogs. It
DOES NOT recommend alpha rolls in shape or form.

Excellent help for dog owners, March 15, 2002 By A Customer
This review is from: Surviving Your Dog's Adolescence: A Positive Training Program (Howell reference books) (Hardcover) I
found this book highly interesting and helpful. It gives practical training tips in ways the new dog owner can understand and
easily put into practice... There is absolutely no negative training in this book. It all focuses on the positives of relationship,
describing and teaching language a dog can understand. I found it extremely helpful. I would highly recommend it to any current
or prospective dog owner.
