  • The Loved Dog

    Hey,

    How many of you have read the book "The Loved Dog" by Tamar Geller?
    If so, has the training method that she applys, is it working for you? She also has DVD but I cant find it.

    I saw just part of her on.. I think it was Oprah.

    The part I saw seemed very similar to the way I have interacted with my dogs for many years. Manners for the dog, etc. I would like to learn more about her methods tho.:P

      I know very little about her but she seems to be a positive reinforcment trainer and a very effective one. What little I know, I like. She could keep me in line.

        I found an excerpt (fairly long too!) on Oprah's site. From this bit, she seems great, and very direct. I appreciate that she specifically speaks against harsh methods.

          Okay, I have completely read the book and a very good book I may add. Her methods are more directed to problem behaviors. It also teachs the thinking and the actions in the canine world. The best part is she teachs the correct way to train in a positive and negetive feedback. She uses no choke or prong collars.

          I have been trying her methods and it has been working, my babies look at me differently. The one thing that I did find very helpful, I know a lot of people yell NO at there dogs, instead you make a high pitch sound much like a dolphin when you are not happy with your dog's behavior, and for the first time my Zoe enjoys coming to me instead of darting the other way. Its amazing how fast they catch on.
