I have read both your (training)  books and I totally  agree  with your philosophy of training dogs. Even before I read your books, I  utilized some of your techniques, especially  praise. I do not plan to turn  my lovely Sky into a trick dog but I believe that it is essential that dogs  learn basic commands and are capable of behaving appropriately. Thank you for  writing these two wonderful books.

I received my Only Angels book and it is better than I even imagined!  You guys did a terrific job on it.  Very informative and beautiful.

I have read ONLY ANGELS through twice and keep referring to it as needed. It is a wonderful book and deals with the things that are encountered with sighthounds.  I have embraced the Affection Training  since reading your book, and have loaded tons of physical and voice praises whenever she does what she is supposed to do.  That has made a difference in her bonding with me.
