Reviews

"A wonderful book that is approachable and user-friendly. A definite must-read for behaviorists, trainers and the general populace."
--Marilyn Krieger, Certified Cat Behavior Consultant, The Cat Coach, LLC
"Karen has dedicated her life's work to humane and scientifically based animal training and this book provides insights that she is uniquely positioned to supply. Karen's courage, willingness to share, talents as a writer and communicator (and let's face it - downright stubbornness) has changed the lives of millions of animals and hundreds of thousands of humans for the better. This book is a unique gift to the world, with its balance of accessible science and intriguing story telling."
