I'm happy with this book
Dana (from Tampa, USA) posted this review on July 4, 2012

I adopted a pooch from the shelter a few months ago and named him Toby. He had behavior issues when I first got him. I was about to give up and give him back when I found Adam’s book. I’ve never had a dog before so I have little knowledge about how all these stuff work. I was surprised at how good Toby and I did during the first week of training that I decided to just go on until he becomes the well-behaved baby I want him to be. I can now take him out on walks and he doesn’t mess up our place anymore. My boyfriend is really happy with our improvement and he’s thankful that we did not have to spend too much money on professional dog trainers. I’m now thinking about continuing my subscription with Adam and his team. I think Toby will love the idea too.

Simple approach and customer support is great
posted this review on December 2, 2012

I don’t like the fact that this book is really long. It does cover all of the essentials in dog training, but I wish they made it a bit more concise since I really hate reading. The content is good though. The techniques are really effective. In fact, I’ve trained 2 dogs using the training methods I learned from this book. I checked out the website and really liked the video tutorials in there but they are too few. I hope Adam comes up with a few more advanced video tutorials for some advanced tricks. I’d like to teach my dogs those. What I like most about this program is that Adam is a real person. Not some made up name just to sell the product. I’ve exchanged a few emails with him, and he’s really nice. He’s helped me a lot in understanding some of the parts I couldn’t understand. His approach is quite simple really, I was just a total dummy when I got started with this. I really hope Adam comes up with an advanced training video course. I’m sure a lot of his fans will buy that.

The manual is very easy to follow and it's got a lot of pictures
posted this review on October 17, 2012

This instructional manual is very easy to follow and it’s complete with illustrations. I also noticed that it’s easier to use than others out there. The training techniques are unique, and my dogs get the instructions more quickly than when I was using a different program. I tried a video course on dog training before, but after weeks of not seeing significant results in my pets, I tried this. I was surprised at how easily my dog picked up the instructions. My dogs are really nice but they can be quite slow in getting what I want them to do, or it could be a problem with my training style. I’m not sure about that but as long as it works and it’s cheap, it’s good enough for me. The bonuses are also useful. They’re not just decorations. You’ll love them as much as you love the core program.

I love training dogs now!
posted this review on November 26, 2012

If you want to train your dog on your own without sacrificing your good relationship, this is what you need. It promotes positive reinforcement so you won’t have to punish your dog while training him. He will also learn more quickly, and he will retain knowledge more easily because he will enjoy earning with you. My dog, Barry, has been with me for 3 years before I decided to train him using  the methods in this manual. He behaves a lot better now, and he’s also become nice to strangers. My younger dog, on the other hand, Matilda, is undergoing training right now, and we both enjoy the time we spend together while training. I love training dogs now because of this manual!

Makes dog training enjoyable and fun
Bonnie Martins (from North Newton, USA) posted this review on September 29, 2012

This book is a complete collection of dog training guides from the really basic ones to the more advanced ones including dog tricks and all that. It’s a wonderful book, and it’s the only one I used to train my lab, Joey, to become the obedient and smart dog she is now. I think this is a better alternative to hiring a dog trainer especially if you need just minor training, and your dog isn’t difficult like my Joey. Even if you don’t have any experience in dog training, I’m sure you will see awesome results in just a short time. You don’t really need to rush it. Just take it easy on yourself and your pooch. If you follow everything in the book, the entire training will be fun for the both of you. I’m actually training my sister’s chow chow now. He’s a little more difficult than Joey, but I’m already seeing awesome results in just 2 weeks of one-on-one sessions.

I'm sure you'll learn a lot from Adam and his book!
posted this review on December 30, 2012

I’m now training dogs for a living. Thanks to Secrets of a Professional Dog Trainer. After I successfully trained my dog and my sister’s dog using positive reinforcement, my friends asked me to train theirs too, and then referred me to other people. And that’s how it started. I’m now quite known in town as THE dog trainer. I couldn’t have done it without Secrets of a Professional Dog Trainer. I didn’t even have to attend seminars or anything. I just practiced the techniques here, and they worked. I don’t know if there are talent and luck involved here, but yeah, I got a good break. I highly recommend this resource if you want to learn how to train dogs. It will not be that easy, but you will surely learn with some practice. Adam’s also available to help when you need him. I’ve emailed him several times while I was going through the course. He’s a really nice fellow who’s always willing to help. I’m sure you’re going to find the course and Adam helpful too.

I've learned so much from this!
Dennis Weaver (from Quitman, USA) posted this review on December 28, 2012

Training dogs is something I’ve always wanted to do. My parents loved dogs, so we always had some at home. When I grew up and had my own family, I exposed the children to dogs as early as possible, so they’d grow up loving them. We have 4 dogs at home now, and the children enjoy playing with them. However, my wife’s a different story. He wanted well-behaved dogs, so I really took time to learn dog training. Secrets of a Professional Dog Trainer taught me a lot. I knew nothing about dog training when I got this course, but now I’ve already trained all 4 dogs. It uses positive reinforcement, and it works for older dogs too, unlike others that work only for puppies. I may not have been able to pursue formal dog training courses, but it’s enough for me that I get to train my own dogs, and some of my friends’ dogs too.

Are the techniques cruel? Do they work? How do dogs react?
posted this review on September 18, 2013

I do agree with some of the reviewers that certain sections of this book are dragged out, but other from that, this book is absolutely perfect. If you think logically about dogs while you watch them (do NOT think of these animals as people with fur, because they aren't) they can be quite firm with each other in an organized pack, but never cruel.

Let me clear something up here about these techniques many people have doubts on. Please read what I have to say before making presumptions.

A lot of people (who cannot think like dogs) believe that prong collars, otherwise known as pinch collars, are cruel because to a human the appearance of this tool makes it look as if it would injure or at least cause the dog pain, but this is not so. It is the most natural and effective tool ever to use on dogs, unless you yank and pull with it instead of doing slack in the leash, than a quick little tug lasting for 1/2 a second and releasing again. Dogs have tough hides compared to us and any dummy can watch them on videos and see that they nip each other without injuring hurting and bewildering each other. Some techniques in dog training can be debated on, but this simply cannot. It's in dogs' natures to correct each other for doing something wrong and having a hierarchy from highest to lowest (although middle ranks can be constantly shifting). Saying that it's cruel to correct a dog and that NEVER telling them no is more to their instincts is like stating that horses do better alone than in herds. It is not in a dog's nature to ignore or tiptoe from a subordinants wrongdoings. And there is a difference between 'correcting' and 'punishing'. A correction is quick and only feels like a pinch to the dog. Punishing is dragging things out, yelling, kicking and hitting a dog (punishment can create defensive or fear aggression, but corrections can not). And ameturs often asume that corrections cause agression, but this is not so. If a 'correction' appears to creates aggression, than it is ineffective and you are only annoying the dog. This occurs when the collar is too loose or has prongs too small.

Another plus about this collar is that it cannot choke dogs (the choke chain, or slip collar, should not choke dogs either unless missused as it often is.)

Another thing inexperience people assume is that prong collars only force your dog to listen and that they will never obey you unless the prong collar is on them. I myself found that assumption to be untrue, as one of my dogs who has been trained with a prong collar and has not had one on for over three months has remained obedient therefore proving that this collar does not force dogs to listen like the 'gentle leader' or this harness (i don't remember what it's called) that restrains a dog's front legs so that she cannot run very quickly.

One top reason some dogs appear to never listen without the collar, is if they are made collar smart. Dogs can be made collar smart if you consitently put the collar on for a walk and take it off after or put it on the dog while training and take it off after, the dog will soon realize you cannot correct them or reinforce your commands at these specific times and associates it with the removal of the collar. But, if you always put the collar on while you are with your dog and take it off when putting him in his run, crate, doghouse, or whatever, then you will not be making the dog collar smart. (Accidently making dogs collar smart can be done with any collar used for training.)

I have found all these techniques to be logical, much quicker than other trainer's stuff, and humane. No punishing the dog (like telling her no two hours after she wrecked the couch) and no yelling unless the dog is too far away to hear you call her quietly, of course.

Also, one of the most common problems, walking on the leash, can be fixed in less than half an hour. Forever. You can also train your dog to come when called every time, stop chasing cars, eliminate aggression, etc.

And remember, in order for these techniques to work (the author, Adam Katz does explain in his book if you read it) you must do the three following things.

1. MAKE SURE THE COLLAR FITS THE DOG CORRECTLY AND HAS PRONGS NOT TOO LARGE OR TOO SMALL.

2. MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO GIVE A GOOD CORRECTION. THIS DOES NOT TAKE AN EXPERT TO MASTER. ALL YOU MUST DO IS PUT SLACK IN THE LEASH OR TAB, TUG IT VERY QUICKLY (NO PULLING) AND RELEASE. THIS SHOULD NOT TAKE MUCH PHYSICAL STRENGTH AND IS MORE TO DO WITH YOUR WRIST.

3. BE CONSISTENT. IF YOU MISS A CORRECTION JUST ONCE (FOR EXAMPLE, THE DOG GETS UP FROM A DOWNSTAY, AND YOU LET HIM GET AWAY WITH IT 'JUST THIS ONCE') THE PREVIOUS CORRECTIONS WON'T MATTER ANYMORE, BECAUSE THE DOG REALIZES YOU CANNOT ENFORCE ALL OF YOUR COMMANDS AND HE DOES NOT ALWAYS HAVE TO LISTEN.

They provide quick support
posted this review on August 11, 2012

This has got everything a dog owner needs to have a well-behaved dog. I have no previous dog training experience but I didn’t have troubles following this. My only problem is that there are too many pages, and I think some of them aren’t that important. I had to skim through it to find only the ones that I need. I don’t know if those other information will be useful for other owners, but for me, being just an ordinary pet owner, I didn’t need a lot of the information in here. I just needed basic obedience training and that’s it. Other than it being long, I had no other problems. The training tips and tricks are all helpful. What I like most about this program, though, is that Adam and his team are responsive. Unlike other people who sell informational stuff online, Adam really provides support for his customers. I had several questions after going through the material once, and Adam responded promptly with clear explanations. That’s important for people who’s got 0 knowledge in dog training.

Like having a whole new dog

After studying the content in this program, I was able to take my dog with me to Peet's Coffee, in Berkeley, and put him on a "down-stay' while I went in for a newspaper and mocha-latte. And guess what? When I came back outside he hadn't even moved despite several other dogs walking around him. It's like having a whole new dog. I think any dog owner should buy this program! It really reveals all of the secrets to getting your dog to listen to you!
