Release Date: June, 1991
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Revised for the '90s, the second edition of Good Dog, Bad Dog serves up the same sound training philosophy--one grounded in love, praise, and affection--found in the original and offers updated and expanded information that enables you to tailor Fido's training according to his temperament. Authors Mordecai Siegal and Matthew Margolis introduce readers to the five basic canine temperament types--strong-willed, shy, high-energy/outgoing, calm/easygoing, and aggressive--and then discuss every aspect of training, from housebreaking, sit, stay, and heel, to down-stay, come when called, and problem behavior, providing "customized training techniques to match the various personalities." A new chapter on bonding with your dog and an expanded dictionary of training behavior for more than 100 breeds makes Good Dog, Bad Dog a training treat good for dogs and owners alike. --Stefanie Hargreaves

Thank goodness I got this book when I did! We bought it because we just got a new addition to our family that will live inside with my wife and myself - a blue standard poodle named Pepper. Surely, without having read this and modifying our behavior, this puppy would have thought his name was "no" instead of Pepper. My wife would also have remained subordinate to Pepper in our "pack." It is packed with such good information for dog owners who want a well-behaved dog. It would pay anyone even planning to get a new puppy to read this book "prior to" the aquisition as it contains valuable behavioral information on 100 different breeds the authors have had first hand experience with in training. Even if you plan to teach your dog (old or new) just a few of the basic commands, there are right and wrong ways to do even that. A must read for folks who care about dogs!

I was suprised how easy it was to teach my 135 pound dog to heal. I have been draged by him for the last 3 years. He healed the first time I tried the method used in this book and it was so easy! I could not believe it. I had to have my kids try it too. It was worth every dollar I spent....

This is the best book I have found that uses the kind of method every dog owner should practice. In just 4 days my schnauzer has stoped chewing on things other than her toys. The book discribes in detailed step by step method to break bad habits and creat peace of mind with the master.
