Crucial Book if you have a puppy/Crucial Reference Tool

Most dog trainin books out there fall into two categories 1. Those books that assume you live on a farm and the dog can run an play on large acres of land- and you have 24 hours a day available to train. or 2. The books that teach very specialized "dog tricks". However,those types of books do not address the situation I was facing. I live in a city appartment and I work full time. I needed my dog to be housebroken, to come to me when told, to get on well with other dogs, and lastly (but by no means leastly) not run out into traffic. Urban Dog addresses all these and other issues faced by city dog owners (a demographic long neglected by previous dog training books). It is easy to read and the tips are useful and simple to practice- however the book is very clear that training must be often and on a consistent basis. It is a good book to keep on the shelf even when the puppy gets older- some new issues may come up or the dog might regress a little bit. So it is good to check what Urban Dog has to say on such an issue. Happy Training.

The title is misleading

This, easy to follow, training manual is not just for the Urban Dog and its owner, these training methods are for everyone! Frankel's training methods are well suited to any environment. Her tips are well researched and supported by experts in their fields. And the section on leash control is invaluable.I have been active in the world of dogs for many years,but I never had amazingly well trained dogs until I met Cis. I have trained 5 of my own dogs with Cis, before, during and after the publishing of her book. My dogs are well known for their obedience, and manners. I can take them anywhere, be it city, suburb, country or hotel, and never worry about what they might do to embarrass me.

Top Notch Training Manual!

I was impressed with this training book from the word go. Cis, a Chicago based dog Trainer, has covered many of the issues that most dog training books over look. Things like leash mechanics, introducing a new puppy to an adult dog and much, much more.This book has information that every dog owner should have ... even if you don't live in the city! If your looking for your first dog training book or looking to add to your collection, I highly recommend picking this one up.

A superbly written and splendidly presented training manual

Urban Dog is a superbly written and splendidly presented training manual for the city dwelling dog owner. Chicagoan Cis Frankel draws upon twelve years of experience training dogs to provide the reader with the basics of puppy training (housebreaking, obedience, basic commands), collars and leash handling; housebreaking in a high-rise; navigating parks, crowds and roadways; creating the "street smart" canine; stressful situations to avoid; and health care specifics for city dogs. Highly recommended, and thoroughly pet owner friendly, Urban Dog is a unique dog training manual that will enable the pet owner to get the most out of their dog while living in a city environment -- and how to get the most out of the city for their dog as well!

This Person Really Knows Dogs

It is obvious from the first page to the last page of this book that the author really knows what she is talking about and that she has learned it by working with many dogs and owners. This book is chock full of great advice and is very easy to follow. It is very interesting how the author has elevated her dogs to partners in a relationship,each with specific responsibilities, something that all dog owners should consider.
