Review:

Nicole has done it again -- written a clear, helpful and comprehensive book on a type of behavior problem that is all too common, and all too difficult to address. An excellent resource for trainers. --Trish King, Director of Behavior and Training, Marin Humane Society

This book is literally overflowing with invaluable, realistic how-to information about safely working with aggressive dogs. After spending much of her career working with wolves and hybrids, dog aggression must seem like a walk in the park for Nicole. We are lucky to benefit from her expertise. --Dr. Ian Dunbar, Founder of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers

Working with aggression is dangerous. Nicole's thoughtful, detailed and encouraging guide bravely lays out for the trainer what is required. The dog training world should welcome it. --Sue Sternberg, Founder and Director, Rondout Valley Animals for Adoption

Winner of the Best Professional Dog Behavior Book of 2008! --Association of Animal Behavior Professionals

Working with aggression is dangerous. Nicole's thoughtful, detailed and encouraging guide bravely lays out for the trainer what is required. The dog training world should welcome it. --Sue Sternberg, Founder and Director, Rondout Valley Animals for Adoption
