Low Stress Handling Restraint and Behavior Modification of Dogs & Cats: Techniques for Developing Patients Who Love Their Visits Reviews
while half this book is dedicated to handling and restraining pets for medicinal treatment, a lot of what this book contains is helpful to owners of fearful, anxious, and aggressive pets. it gives you insight into how to know what your pet is thinking by the way that they act and express themselves. i have had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Yin in person as well, and she is a wonderfully skilled vet and pet trainer.
Though spendy this book and DVD are great to have for learning and reference. I appreciate the "realness" of the DVD and the gentle, firm and positive approach. Does your vet treat your pet the same way? I am now equipped to better evaluate who cares for my pet and greatly encouraged that what so many of the "dominance" gurus do can be so harmful. If you cringe when you see dogs being jerked around by choke chain collars, zapped with electrical charges, yelled at, scolded and other wise "worked over" because their guardians feel their authority is threatened, then this is for you. Positive reinforcement and just good ol' consistent, positive, and upbeat attitude can work wonders. Dr. Yin shows how to use these positive attributes to help your pet become the confident companion you want. I also recommend any book by Patricia McConnell who recommended this book on her website.
Extremely satisfied with the seller and quality of the product
Arrived promptly and had so many good pictures for restraint
This book is aimed at the staff of a veterinary office, however, the info is useful for anyone interested in handling dogs or cats without causing them stress. As a dog trainer, I have found the information extremely helpful. Be aware, though, that Dr. Yin states that those who try the techniques she shared without watching the included videos fail to do them correctly.
She is a genius this book is a life saver. Point blank.
Very informative, love all the pictures that demonstrate what she is saying.
