The Good Dog Way
Love Them by Leading Them

by Sean O'Shea

In the first training book of its kind, internationally renowned dog trainer Sean O'Shea takes a unique look at the often misunderstood dynamics of the human/dog relationship. He explores where we go wrong, why we go wrong, and most importantly, how through a clearer understanding of both species, we can make it right again.

Something’s going on…

In a world filled with dog lovers, how is it that so many find themselves still struggling? Why do we see more behavior issues and “problem” dogs than ever before? How is it that we still don’t “get” each other?

The simple answer is information. We’ve been misled. We’ve been taught that leading and guiding our dogs is something harmful, damaging, oppressive. Something that takes from our dogs. The truth is exactly the opposite. Leading, guiding, setting rules, creating expectations, and consequences don’t take from our dogs, they give to our dogs.

They give comfort, clarity, simplicity, joy, stability, and freedom. They bring out the very best.

The formula is actually a simple one. In fact, it’s probably stuff you already know. These principles are universal, irrefutable. But somewhere along the line we lost our way. We became disconnected from simplicity, truth and universal laws.

I believe that this book can help you reconnect. Not just to your dog, but to yourself. I believe that the information and stories from actual owners can help you solve long-standing issues, sort out relationship problems, and help give you clarity on what’s been going wrong… and how to get it right.

I believe this book can help you find that something.

The book is fabulous! I just finished reading it.

This book would be a great choice for someone thinking about getting a dog, or a current dog owner...especially if there's any behavioral issues.

Lots of great advice such as: address the small moments and we rarely see the big ones. And my favorite "you don't do training you live training". This is a book you would want to read then reread certain passages as needed. I know I for one, need to be reminded of things especially when it's new and not yet a habit.

This well written book is easy to read, understand and put the concepts into practice. Sean O'Shea clearly has the knowledge and compassion to be an effective leader for canines as well as us humans!-Patti-jean Trombley
