From Library Journal:

Founder of the Loved Dog, a cage-free boarding facility and doggie daycare center in Los Angeles, and dog trainer for stars such as Oprah, Geller (animal behavior, Pepperdine Univ.) has written a training manual that relies on positive reinforcement. She begins with a discussion of dogs' seven basic needs: security, companionship, hierarchy, excitement, food and exercise, mental stimulation, and love and connection. She then explains how to develop a common language with a dog and describes the application of her principles of play training to create a good house companion, one that understands commands (sit, come, back off, stay), is housebroken, does not jump on guests or bark excessively, and walks on a leash without pulling. While Geller's method is not new--positive, gentle, nonviolent training methods have been described in many recent books, including Paul Owens's The Dog Whisperer and Dale Stavroff's Let the Dog Decide--her style is engaging, her text is easy to read, and her advice is accessible to the layperson. Geller's reputation as Hollywood dog "life coach" and her role as a Today Show pet contributor will spark demand. Recommended for public libraries.--Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll.
