From the Author:

This book is dedicated to my parents, who have supported all of my projects dating back to my earliest memories; to my husband, Jason Young, who is a terrific business partner and wonderful life partner;  and to my sons, Alexander and  Nicholas. May they find the same joy in dogs that their mother has found. It also is dedicated to all of my dog friends, past and present. They have been wonderful teachers.

From the Inside Flap:

Almost every dog owner wants a stable, dependable canine companion to bond with in a rewarding relationship. That's a perfectly reasonable desire and a perfectly realistic one. And it's the reason for this dog training book.
Rewarding relationships usually don't happen by accident. They happen because an owner cares enough to choose a companion wisely and then to expend the time and the patience that are necessary in training dogs to nurture his dog's inborn ability to provide friendship and companionship. It works, because the dog-human relationship is rare in nature; two distinct species that live in exceedingly close proximity and that communicate so readily and so well with each other.
Dogs are amazingly adept at reading the subtle physical cues that we broadcast sometimes without even knowing it and that reveal so much about our state of mind. How many times have you heard a person say about her dog, "He's so amazing. He knows when I'm happy. He knows when I'm sad."
And he does, of course. Dogs know a lot about us because they are able to read us almost as well as they read other dogs.
With a little instruction, we can read them,also, which is what I hope to help you do. That skill begins with understanding how dogs think.
My first exposure to dog training on a professional level occurred in Europe, where I lived for several years in my early 20s. It was my good fortune to study there under several masters of dog obedience training who shared skills that were derived from the classic dog training traditions of the Old World. Later I continued my studies in the United States, where I learned new ways of looking at old dog training problems and how best to find solutions for them.
Since then I have been training dogs and their handlers successfully by the many hundreds, if not by the thousands, in a variety of skills ranging from simple dog obedience training to highly complex behaviors. It has been a two-way street. These dog-and-handler teams have enhanced my education, too, by showing me clearly what works and what doesn't.
What you will find in this dog training book is not academic theory. It is boots-on-the-ground information from a boots-on-the-ground professional dog trainer who has learned her craft in a painstaking way. This dog training book explains what works and why it works. It will help to put you inside the head of your canine companion and to understand the processes that go on there. Then it will show you how to make that information work for you. Whether you feel you are at a stage where you need dog training for dummies, or you believe you already are a dog whisperer, this book was written for you!
The principles that I share with you about pet training, when properly applied, will reward you with a happy companion, a disciplined companion, and a fulfilling companion with whom you will be pleased to share your life. It is ideal for a new dog owner, or simply the owner of a new dog; anyone who is about to step up to the challenge of dog training and is searching among dog training books for the one that will show the way clearly and effectively.
The market is full of dog training books, some good ones and many not-so-good ones. You are sure to be pleased with this one which, as its reader reviews indicate, has provided outstanding results to many grateful dog people.
