Back in 2013, Robert Pattinson spoke incredibly candidly about self-esteem, telling the world he suffered from body dysmorphia and "tremendous" anxiety. I don’t have a six-pack and I hate going to the gym," he said. I’ve been like that my whole life. Pattinson has not spoken publicly about his recent transformation. In fact, the last we heard about his diet and exercise, he was eating one meager meal a day to prepare for his gaunt role in 2016's The Lost City of Z. I loved it afterwards, for like a week in London, where I have a 28-inch waist.

I bought this book because of all the bad reviews surrounding the author, paired with the blurb I read before ordering which really intrigued me. Since I am a professional dog trainer I want to know how others in the field are doing things regardless of if I agree they are good or bad. I am on the fence about some of the techniques he says to use. I think they can be tweaked to be fairer to the dog and have the owner be more successful. I personally think a lot of the techniques are misunderstood because of how he explains them. As I said, I don't agree with all his techniques, but at the same time I think his "voice" in the writing is geared towards trainers and he did not take into account people with no background to understand how a lot of what he is trying to say is subtle in its execution and not as hard line as it sounds on paper or without seeing it in person.

This poor man keeps writing books and giving speeches full of absurd and out of date information. He says things like "don't make your dog sit before you put his food bowl down because he'll be doing it for the food and not for you." It would be funny if his methods didn't promote violence and mistreatment of animals. His reputation has taken a hit since he was filmed on the street in Toronto choking one dog, running another dog into a tree, and screaming at a woman while he slapped and choked her dog. I'm not kidding. This particular book of his is full of outdated nonsense on alpha theory and unnecessarily complicated solutions for behavioral problems. One thing Mr. Pattison does do 'right' is to promote a good diet and exercise plan, and that is indeed important for a dog's quality of life. In light of videos in which dogs cower at the sound of his voice, however, that slim redeeming feature just isn't enough.

Don't buy his books, don't watch his shows. Check out Jolanta Benal's The Dog Trainer's Complete Guide to a Happy, Well-Behaved Pet for some solid info and science-based information.

First, the good part. He encourages owners to exercises their dogs as well as pointing out that many dog problems are really owner problems. He also rejects the use of props such as pronged collars, choke chains, and shock collars.

Now for the not so good. He unfortunately completely rejects most forms of reinforcement and primarily advocates the use of punishment to correct a dog's behavior. As anyone who has taken a basic psychology course should know, the two go hand in hand, you reward behavior you want and punish behavior you don't want (I also don't buy into the whole positive training only school). The punishment methods he recommends in his book are not abusive, at least not as he describes them. His recommendation to simply pull up on the leash (to the point of the dogs front paws coming off the ground) to get a dog to sit can vary easily be taken to the point of being abusive. By this I mean that if the dog did not comply and one were to continue pulling upward for more than a split second the act effectively chokes the dog out, which is clearly abuse. Because Pattison offers no other method to get a dog to sit, it is highly likely sit training does cross the line. On top of that, from what I have read about the author from other sources, he is abusive to dogs as well as their owners.

To make matters worse, Pattison ascribes to the debunked and outdated alpha/dominance theory. Dogs are not wolves, and long term studies of wolves have shown that the studies dominance theory is based on or inaccurate anyway. Please, before ascribing to any training that bandies about the word alpha read up on dominance theory and dog training (there is plenty of good information available on the web if you use google).

There are no quick fixes when it comes to training a dog. Persistence and consistency are key. Also, a poor application of punitive training practices is much more likely to damage a dog than a poor application of positive training methods. However both, if done incorrectly, can lead to problems. So, for you sake and that of your dog, please take the time to research training methods and learn to think about all of them critically rather than simply swallowing the first one you are introduced to. That, and remember each dog is an individual and what works well with one can have disastrous results with another.

Another dissppointing offering from Brad Pattison. He continues with his debunked message of alpha (1) (abandoned by wolf/dog biologists) and 'respect' through force. The book will be a disappointment to anyone familiar with the science of behavior modification and ethology.

Pattison will on occasion cite scientific studies to bolster his case, but in many cases he completely misreads the conclusion and supplants his own beliefs despite of the evidence. His assertions that food training makes dogs aggressive has never been proven while we can reliably state that the confrontational methods he spouses produces aggressive dogs (2)

His whole approach is to punish an animal until it stops doing a particular behavior. This is the reason his methods have been specifically mentioned by the IPDTA who described his approach as one based on "fear" and "intimidation".

Compare this with the modern approach of training a desired behavior with positive reinforcment. PR is the main method by which service dogs are trained because if produces reliable, happy working dogs. And for the common pet owner it also produces happy, reliable pets.

Don't waste your money on this book unless you want to read a "HOW NOT TO" book. Instead look for Karen Pryor, Jean Donaldson, Ian Dunbar, Pat Miller or Emma Parsons.
