Having owned rescue dogs all my life, I consider myself a fairly proficient dog owner but I wish I had known the wisdom shared by The Way of Life Method. After reading this book, I feel incredibly empowered to build a solid relationship with my newest challenge, a 10-year-old mini Aussie who came to me with many issues. Whether you are a seasoned dog owner, a new dog owner, or simply an animal lover, read this book. You will learn so much. It is a fascinating read, full of the author’s firsthand experiences with dogs and plenty of scientific backing.

~ Judi B. (Markham, ON)
Experienced Rescue Dog Owner
taco testimonial img

The conventional ideas of dog training are exclusively focused on reinforcing and modifying behavior, and they are quick to label a dog’s behavior as characteristics of its personality, breed, or past experience. This book takes the dog out of the behaviorist petri dish and challenges people to build a relationship with their dog in a way that aligns with a dog’s nature and instincts. The result is that you no longer have to teach the dog what to do or not to do, the dog just knows.
