A valuable tool for dog owners Feb 14, 2004
Dr. Gates uses anecdotes and philosophy to convey the lessons he has learned from 35 years of practice. His techniques are natural but too often overlooked these days. A must read for all puppy owners.
A must have for new puppy parents! Aug 10, 2003
Dr. Gates does a fantastic job of showing new puppy parents how to teach their puppy the concepts of trust and respect, which leads to self-control. What a unique and refreshing concept! He as great stories, and illustrations that bring his experiences to life and made it easy for my wife and I to apply these skills to our puppy. A fast read with incredibly valuable information. A must have investment in your relationship with your new family member.
