Review:

""Training Your Dog the Humane Way" is a landmark book. Alana Stevenson blends the latest scientific research on who dogs are and what they want, need, and feel with clear instructions for positive, reward-based training. This easy-to-read book is an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to have a close and enduring relationship with their best friend. I hope it enjoys global acceptance."
-- Marc Bekoff, PhD, University of Colorado, author of "The Emotional Lives of Animals," "Wild Justice," and "The Animal Manifesto"
"For too many years, dogs have been trained with unnecessarily harsh and combative methods. "Training Your Dog the Humane Way" is straightforward and easy to read, and it will assist caring dog owners in developing appropriate behavior in a compassionate way that will strengthen the bond between them and their dogs."
-- Lore I. Haug, DVM, MS, CPDT, diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists
"Alana Stevenson has done a fabulous service to dogs and their guardians. She knows how a dog's mind works, and her clear advice and positive approach make training rewarding for both canine and human."
-- Jonathan Balcombe, PhD, author of "Pleasurable Kingdom," "Second Nature," and "The Exultant Ark"
"Wags and woofs for "Training Your Dog the Humane Way," which educates humans to first be aware of their own behavior, as well as canine behavior and communication, before seeking to shape dogs' behavior. This approach to training enhances the relationship between human and pet and brings out the best in both species."

Alana Stevenson s Training Your Dog the Humane Way is a welcome addition to the chorus of positive dog training. Its beauty lies in Alana s direct approach. The book is easy to understand and is fueled by Alana s genuine and obvious love of animals. She emphasizes the importance of educating dogs the right way, the first time, which is an invaluable refrain. If more and more people implement her suggestions, more and more dogs, and people, will benefit.
Paul Owens, author of The Dog Whisperer: A Compassionate, Nonviolent Approach to Dog Training
Training Your Dog the Humane Way is beautifully written and has great content for discerning and naive dog owners.
