Here is a short review of the book attributable to amazon, then I'll
add a suggestion.
[According to the late Barbara Woodhouse, there are no difficult dogs,
only inexperienced owners. In No Bad Dogs she propounds her outspoken
beliefs about dog behavior; having trained more than 17,000 dogs and
their owners, Woodhouse knows of which she speaks. She isn't shy about
condemning bad owners, firmly believing that dogs reflect their
masters, habits and all. But this highly regarded book doesn't dwell on
the negative; it suggests positive and simple training techniques for
any owner and offers hope for all types of dogs, ranging from the
chronically phobic to the severely jealous. No Bad Dogs is illustrated
throughout with case studies of cured canines.]
I just have to take a short time out to laugh, because I think its so
true that the dogs reflect their masters!!!
I've found www.a1books.com
to be the absolute cheapest, by far, of any
online bookstore I could find. However, they are also the slowest in
delivering. I can handle that. What I really don't like about them
though, is they don't read email questions, and once you've entered an
email address for them to contact you, apparently, you can NEVER change
it. If you go there, would you take the opportunity to tell them this
when you have the chance??? :-)

Thanks. I write fiction, particular to eliciting a response. But as
you probably already know, fiction has to come from somewhere and it
almost always comes from reality. [Gosh I hate giving away my
