About the Author:

Author Brenda Aloff is a professional dog trainer specializing in problem behavior. A large part of her practice consists of dogs that have been referred to her when traditional training techniques have failed. She works with owners on re-socialization of fearful and aggressive dogs as well as teaching puppy socialization, competition obedience, conformation, tracking, back-packing, musical freestyle, and agility classes at Heaven On Arf Behavior and Training Center in Midland, Michigan. She is a member of The Association of Dog Obedience Instructors, Trainer s Forum and several other breed and training organizations. Brenda travels all over the world giving talks on canine aggression and learning theory.

Review:

Brenda Aloff is a pioneer in our field. Clicker trainers have proven that it can be done with competition obedience, agility, flyball, service dogs, indeed in all fields of what might be called performance training. But Brenda takes our technology into a field long considered the ultimate bastion of the force trainer: rehabilitating and training the aggressive dog. Brenda shows clearly, most importantly through her detailed case histories, that one can address the issues posed by these dogs in a constructive, effective way without losing oneself in the murk of dominance theory and all of the mythology that surrounds it. This book is a worthwhile and necessary addition to any serious trainer's library. --Morgan Spector, author of Clicker Training for Obedience

There are standards in the world...Campbell's on soup, Bud on beer and now, Aloff on aggression. Almost every dog training book I've ever read has provided me with some gem, or at least some tidbit, I can use. This book, however, is the mother lode. If you need to understand aggression, Aggression in Dogs is the book for you! --Missy Parker, RVN, President, National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors

This book is a must have for all trainers, kennel personnel, veterinarians and support staff. Not just for aggressive animals, Aggression in Dogs is an excellent reference tool for anyone interested in understanding canine behavior and the prevention of aggression. The protocols are field-proven effective. --Robert Wenzel, DVM
