    Victoria Stilwell is an actress-turned-dog-trainer who has started training schools in both Britain and the United States. She stars in the UK's Channel 4 television series It's Me or the Dog. She lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
    Canine expert Victoria Stilwell shows readers how to train their dogs out of even the most difficult and persistent bad behaviors. It's Supernanny for your dog!

    Victoria Stilwell is one of the world's most recognized and respected dog trainers. As the host of Britain's hit television series It's Me or the Dog and the founder of training schools on both sides of the Atlantic, she is known as much for her spunky attitude as for her caring, effective methods. Now, in her first book, Victoria shows how to tame even the most problematic dog. Simple, intuitive instructions and color photographs help dog owners not merely train their pets, but understand them--so when a new issue arises, they'll be able to adjust their approach and nip it in the bud before it gets out of hand. Throughout, she reminds owners that training isn't about imposing their will on a dog; it's about giving him the tools he needs to live in the human world. Topics include:

    • Think Dog: understanding your pup
    • Talk Dog: canine communication
    • Dog School: basic obedience training
    • Dog's Dinner: the right diet
    • Accidents Will Happen: house-training
    • You'll Never Walk Alone: exercise
    • Worker's Playtime: having fun with your dog

    • Quick but EFFECTIVE read !!
      Verified Purchase

      I have a Norwegian Elkhound Puppy, my second & they are notoriously... shall we say independent. No amount of training has ever been easy or completely productive... until now. I am not a believer in harsh discipline when trying to guide and teach puppies how to live with humans, so this book was inviting from the beginning. Victoria has an amazing insight into the canine behavior and why they do what they do... and she expresses it in very understanding ways. I recommend this book to owners of new puppies as well as veteran puppy families.......

      I liked it, sound information, but there was less than I expected. I wanted more. If you have seen the TV show, there really was nothing new.

      Verified Purchase

      I like Vicotria Stillwell's show "Its Me or the Dog" so I knew I had to read her book. I found it easy to read and a very helpful refresher. I enjoyed the section on canine body language and her positive approach to training. I would recommend it to anyone with dogs or thinking about getting a dog.
