Wolfkeeper Review and Giveaway!
Here is a really interesting book on dog training. It is called Wolfkeeper, a Wolfkeepers guide to Training a Dog, by Master Dog Trainer Toriano Antoine Samzone. This book is a guide and journal to help you on your way to training your dog. "If you want to learn how to train a dog, go train a thousand dogs. If you want to learn how to train your own dog, go train somebody else's."
Toriano was raised with a family that loved dogs. He believes that raising and training a dog is an art, like any other discipline. The original manuscript for this book was written while he was lying in a hospital bed for 68 days recovering from a car accident.
Some of the chapter titles include:Dog Addiction, What Truly is a Wolfkeeper, Old School Training, Teaching Commands, Various Levels of Training, Should Dog Training be Mandatory, etc. In the Appendices, you have Training Questions, Nutrition Questions, Health Questions, Behaviour Fact Sheet, and 14 Day Training Journal. The book is filled with black and white pictures.
I found the Chapter 18 on Breed Specific Legislation interesting. It covers some of the restrictions and laws states impose on specific breeds of dogs. That there are 75 breeds that are either banned or restricted amazed me, especially some of the breeds included.
One reader will receive their own copy of Wolfkeeper, A Wolfkeeper's Guide to Training a Dog.
