    • This is a good book to read, but it isn't thorough enough to be a stand alone training book. It is more a biography with helpful tips and interesting anecdotes. There just isn't enough info to be the total basis for dog training. I really did enjoy the book and got some good ideas that I am using, but I don't feel like all of my questions are answered or addressed, so I'll keep reading other books!Also, she talks as if her training ideas are unique and they really aren't. I've read and heard man [...]


    • While I appreciate the gentle training method there was too much name dropping and not enough focus on the training aspect. I don't care how nice Courtney Cox is, I want to learn how to get my dog to stop trying to eat my cat.


    • My parents bought me this book for Christmas, hoping i would finally teach my Border Collie to stop jumping up at people. I read the book in one sitting, teaching "Tito" along the way. I enjoyed the personal stories which related to each training routein and trick. I found myself instantly liking Tamara, her love of animals is very apparent, and as a HUGE animal lover myself i felt obliged to stick to the book and its rules - if not for Tito then to pay homage to a good person who happens to be [...]


    • This has some great training ideas in it and I liked the way it is all positive training (no choke collars, no whacking with a newspaper, etc.). The tips really work too, although keep in mind that my puppy is a Golden Retriever, one of the easiest breeds to train. I'd be curious to hear how it would work for harder-to-train breeds like Schipperkes. The author could have spared us all her name dropping and family history, but I suppose that it could be entertaining for some readers.


    • I'm reading this book so when I get a dog in a couple months I will be ready. Not only to have a well behaved dog but a happy one also. I'm learning so much & I strongly suggest everyone read it that has a dog.


    • Very informative, and fun training guide. Tamar made each chapter be fun, interesting, informative and definitely a book that I can refer back to many times over. I really enjoyed her personal testomony, explaining how she got to where she became a positive and gentle dog trainer. What she explained made complete sense. She made me also realise a couple of times where I went very wrong with Nucky, my first dog, and how to improve my bond and my working relationship with Ellen. I like her sharing [...]


    • It's a fun book in the sense that it has interesting stories and antidotes, but it's not something I would recommend to someone who was looking for hands-on training recommendations. And most of what she has to share is really circumstantial. While I appreciate all training perspectives and I feel reading a wide variety of view-points lends to my overall understanding of dogs and furthers the rehabilitation work that I do, I found her suggestions to not be helpful for anyone actually struggling [...]


    • Let me save you some time, so that you can just learn about training your dog and skip Tamar Geller's life story and tales of all the times she trained celebrities' dogs.1. Don't beat your dog or be mean to it.2. Don't punish your dog when it gets something wrong.3. Reward your dog (via treats) when it gets something right while saying the name of the thing that it was doing that you liked (for instance, "good potty", "good sit", "good chewing this overlong book").Congratulations, you are now re [...]


    • I enjoyed the author's personal story and her passion for non-violent training methods. She describes pretty clearly how to reward desired behavior and discouraged unwanted behavior. It would have been helpful for her to illustrate or photography more clearly some of the techniques, break them down more for us visual learners.


    • I was browsing through the books at a thrift store yesterday when I came across this book. My daughter has a hyper pup who she loves to death, but who is driving her up the walls. They attend a training class each weekend, but he seems to forget everything as soon as he learns it. This book sounded interesting, so I thought she might like to read through it. After eating dinner last night, I picked up the book and flipped through it, and this passage caught my attention:Most people think of soci [...]


    • I read this book as part of my education towards getting a service puppy in September. The author begins the book by saying that she understands she has a few different ideas then what people are used to- one I found odd was not playing chase with your dog. That was strange to me because it's such a classic game, but she want on to explain that whatever you play you must be able to win in order to maintain your rightful place as pack leader and your dog is naturally faster so it can compromise y [...]


    • My Home just adopted a dog. She's almost 2 and a darling, but hasn't had a lot of socialization or training. I've been reading/listening to books about dog training/socializing/adopting.I've owned several dogs throughout my life, but most had been puppies and were easy to train and to make part of the household. I felt a little daunted bringing a 2-year-old home.I rarely feel I need to act aggressively toward animals so, by the title of this book, I felt the information Tamar Geller had to offer [...]


    • Lura and I have a new puppy and another new puppy arriving in a week. We're eager to learn about raising well-behaved, joyful dogs. This book is helpful. Her bottom line: use carrots not sticks, honey not vinegar.She is very critical of dog trainers who break dogs' spirits. She emphasizes other trainers' abusive method and parallels puppy mills with concentration camps.Our two dogs are long haired ridiculously cute miniature dachshunds. Like many dog lovers, she emphasizes getting dogs from shel [...]


    • While I love the principles Geller teaches in The Loved Dog, the lack of an index is inexcusable. I listened to the book and wanted to go back and review certain sections before trying them at home. Without an index, this was quite irritating.That said, Geller’s method employs no corrections and she eschews the use of choke or prong collars. She considers herself a coach, rather than trainer because she is simply helping dogs to override their wolf instincts, and owners to communicate their ex [...]


    • I agree with much of what she says about dogs. She's better than Cesar Millan as for the positive training techniques (except for the water bottle technique to cure barkingat's not positive. Hmmm) I'm not a fan of free-for-all doggy daycares, which Tamar owns/runs in California, therefore I am hesitant to say Tamar knows how to truly get into the head of the dog. Tamar seems to be a fabulous gal (probably someone I would be friends with), but there's no way she can rehabilitate severe abuse/negl [...]


    • I always love to read different training books by different trainers. I do not always agree with everything they say to do, but by getting lots of info I can find what works best for me. Other than having to read about the author's terrible childhood (extra info I did not need or want), the book was pretty good. A couple of things that caught me off guard:She trained Oprah Winfrey's dogs ( so did Cesar Milanwho was there first and why does Oprah have so many issues controlling her dogs?) Did I m [...]


    • It's no real revelation that whacking fido with a rolled-up newspaper is a bad training strategy. And the author's theory, based on a more loving approach, makes a lot of sense. Still, it's a serious over-simplification that being extra loving will yield positive results (though being loving and patient are key) and it's highly impractical to have your pockets continually full of treats and toys and to be ready to drop down and play on the ground at any minute (there's a lot of play time here an [...]


    • Chalk one up to serendipity. I've been working a lot with both Bailey and Buster (especially Buster!) and this book was one that was pulled for me to evaluate for the library's collection. Reading it has been a revelation--Tamar's approach mirrors exactly what I've been trying to do with both dogs: train them to do what I want without yelling, without punishing them for misbehaving, and so on. As I have been reading the book, I keep finding things that have been working well for me that she reco [...]


    • Nothing ground-breaking or earth-shattering here. Enjoyable, quick read that mostly reflects common sense, it seems to be what I've done/learned on my own already, just put into words. Granted there are some bits and hot-button topics that some people I know will always disagree with. Some folks will probably take the old dog/wolf debate and take issue with the book because of it, or opt to ignore this book as a result, which is unfortunate, because, though a dog is a dog and a wolf is a wolf th [...]


    • There's some good stuff in here that I'm going to try with my new puppy. Nonaggressive training sounds great! I'd personally recommend reading this through and talking to your family members about the techniques you'll use and why (as discussed in the book) if possible before you get your dog, since it's a departure from some traditional (aggressive) concepts. If you have puppy in hand and need help training now! this may not be the most accessible book, since it's written sort of as part a biog [...]


    • Finally a book about dog behavior and training that clicks with me. I've been implementing the principles she teaches and literally within minutes my dogs have responded. Tamar taught me a lot about how dogs think, why they do the things they do, and how when they're acting up or doing things wrong it's actually because of us that they're acting that way. Her main philosophy is to love your dogs and by giving encouragement and positive reinforcement they will do what you want. Just in the last w [...]


    • This book is awesome!! The author spent time studying wolves in the wild learning so much about the canine species, which helped her develop her play-based training methods. She then watched the negative methods the Israeli Army uses to train its army dogs and decided she would never use tactics that harm, scare or are negative. The book outlines an entire training methodology founded on positive playful and natural dog tendencies. I really learned a lot and plan to use it with my own dogs. Woul [...]


    • I have read this book twice and it has helped me train two different dogs. It's written more story-like and gives you more of a philosophy on dog training. There are still really informative sections on training specific things like sit, lay down etc. The writer is kinda out there and a little annoying, she tells you to say everything in a "sing song" way and "make a party" when your dog does well, but I love her training style and I swear by it, it totally works. I would recommend this book to [...]


    • The author of this book developed her method of training from her experience with child abuse and her research of wild wolves in Israel. She trains dogs using wolves' means of communication but with absolutely no pain or physicality, and I think the combination works perfectly. I've already seen my dog, who I've had for 3 days, respond to this method of training. AND because of it I'm not setting up a relationship of antagonism between us! The only reason I give this book 4 instead of 5 stars is [...]


    • The techniques and methodology Geller propose are incredibly effective and easy to remember. After one night of practice, my Sweet Pete knows how to lay down and he didn't bark all night or morning. I'm sure my neighbors are happy, and Pete and I are. Even if your dog is well-behaved, it's worth perusing just for ideas about how to improve your relationship.As far as the narrative is concerned, Geller includes a little more fluff than I'd like, but her anecdotes are illustrative and amusing at l [...]


    • This book was passionate and endearing. It taught an entirely different method of dog training from other popular sources such as Monk of New Skete and Cesar Milan (dog whisperer). The history behind the method's creation as well as anecdotal examples made reading this book enjoyable and educational. I still use several of these methods with my dogs as well as the dogs I train at the pound with fantastic results. These gentle methods are especially useful for previously abused dogs that might ac [...]


    • Like most people, I was taught that choke collars and force are the natural and correct ways to train dogs. Ms. Geller's experience as an abused child taught her that force and violence are never appropriate for anyone. She learned from observing wild wolves that the "alpha rollover" (forcing a dog on it's back to teach it who is boss) is not natural or correct. The wolves she observed taught each other with games and more gentle methods. [return][return]Ms. Geller has an important message, and [...]


    • I really enjoyed reading this book. Geller gives practical ideas and advice throughout the book, explaining that the best way to communicate and get along with your dog (or anyone, really) is to understand things from their perspective. While she does name drop to the point of seeming pretentious, her advice is smart because it explains how to work WITH a dog's natural instincts without causing him to feel scared or insecure. Many dog trainers reject Caesar Milan's methods and believe they are t [...]


    • After listening to the CD, I checked out the book to further investigate specific subjects of interest. I also discovered that the book is on youtube chapter by chapter! Her ideas are different and make sense - I just wish they would always work. I listened to this while in the adoption process for my new dog Rudy. He has problems with getting along with other male dogs! I may refer to her methods again in the future.The author tells of ways to train your dog that do not involve hitting or rubbi [...]


    • I agree with her techniques, however she was just too general in this book. I think someone who doesn't have any training or experience in working with dogs might have a difficult time using this book at a training guide for their dog simply because there just wasn't enough specificity and/or instruction. The tips were good & the stories about her client dogs were interesting, but the step by step of how to accomplish those things with your dog just weren't there most of the time or were too [...]
