Having had dogs all my life I was pleasantly surprised to learn a few new tricks. I bought the book in desperation to try to cure my collie bitch of her incessant barking – having spent a lot of time & money on devices and techniques that had failed to make even a small improvement. Within two days of trying Jan Vennall’s advice not only was she noticeably quieter, but so were the rest of the pack. I’m also trying to cure another collie of his separation anxiety – more difficult due to some bad experiences he had as a youngster before we took him on from the RSPCA. I would certainly recommend this book as a first resort – I think I will be going back to it time and again. LJ Lewis
